What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, we lose volume in our faces, which is what makes our skin look soft and youthful. Cosmetic dermal fillers can be used to fill lines and wrinkles and restore volume to key areas of the face. They can also be used as a non-surgical solution for minor nose deformities and as a treatment for thin lips and ageing eyes.
Although dermal fillers, especially temporary fillers, are very safe, it’s essential for a qualified doctor to administer the injections. Dermal filler ingredients bind with water molecules in the skin to increase volume. The injections also stimulate collagen production, which improves the appearance of your skin over the long-term.
Dermal filler treatments have become increasingly popular. They offer good results without the cost or recovery time associated with plastic surgery.
Dermal Filler Treatments Explained
Prior to treatment, an anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treated area – this will need several minutes to take effect. While dermal filler treatments are not overly painful, the numbing cream just makes your session much more comfortable. Using a tiny needle, Dr. Candelario will administer several injections. The area will be gently massaged to ensure a smooth and even end result.
The number of injections you’ll require is dependent on your specific requirements but overall, treatments are very quick. Depending on the type of filler used and the area treated, reinforcement treatments are usually necessary to maintain the effect.
