Why Receive Dermal Filler Injections?
Dermal fillers are commonly used to address the signs of aging. As we age, our faces lose subcutaneous fat, causing facial muscles to work closer to the skin surface, increasing the visibility of smile lines and crow's feet. Additionally, the facial skin undergoes stretching, further contributing to the loss of facial volume.
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic solution to combat the signs of aging by diminishing facial lines and rejuvenating facial volume and fullness. Aging, though, isn't the only reason to get dermal fillers. They can help most people with recessed scars, wrinkles, and creases. As a minimally invasive treatment, though, they may be unable to fix everything. Consult with our team at Pure Image Laser & Spa to see if Dermal Fillers are right for you.
Dermal Fillers Before & After
These injectable treatments can help you fight against the cosmetic villain known as aging, an evildoer that unfortunately affects everyone. Wrinkles and fine lines cause many of our clients to feel unsatisfied with their appearance, making facial fillers an excellent way for women to regain their confidence!
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
As a minimally invasive treatment, many of our clients think that dermal fillers won't last very long. It’s true that dermal fillers may not last as long as plastic surgery, but they still last a long time. Most dermal fillers last approximately 6 to 12 months, while some have even lasted up to two years.
You still get a long time frame with facial fillers, but the real advantage is that they look more natural and are significantly less invasive than plastic surgery. They restore volume to areas of the face near the injection sites without having you undergo a surgical procedure.
Facial Fillers Are a Great Alternative to Surgery
Facial fillers offer a strong alternative to surgical procedures for those seeking cosmetic enhancements. These non-invasive treatments can rejuvenate one's appearance without surgery, anesthesia, or lengthy recovery periods. Facial fillers effectively address fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, restoring a more youthful and refreshed look with minimal downtime.
With customizable and precise application, individuals can achieve natural-looking results tailored to their unique needs, while avoiding the risks and invasiveness associated with plastic or cosmetic surgeries. If you're looking for a rejuvenated face without the negatives associated with surgery, dermal fillers could be your solution!
Dermal Filler Frequently Asked Questions
When you're having any procedure, we understand there will be many questions you'd like answered. Below is a list of some of our most common questions about dermal fillers. If you have any more, be sure to contact our team.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Dermal fillers are generally considered safe when administered by trained and experienced healthcare professionals like our Pure Image & Spa team. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with facial filler treatments. Most negative reactions to a dermal filler injection are due to a lack of training or professionalism from those administering the injection. That's why choosing a trained, highly qualified professional is essential.
What Are the Potential Side Effects of Dermal Fillers?
Just like any medical procedure, there are side effects to facial fillers. After the treatment, you may notice temporary swelling, redness, itchiness, and bruising. Side effects usually last only a few days afterward and tend to be mild. More serious potential side effects include an allergic reaction or infection. However, these are extremely rare. Consult with our team if you're worried about a possible allergic reaction.
Do Facial Fillers Hurt?
The level of discomfort or pain experienced during a facial filler treatment can vary from person to person. It may also depend on factors such as the location of the injection, the type of dermal filler used, and individual pain tolerance. However, most of our clients typically only report mild discomfort, and considering the treatment takes very little time, approximately 15 to 30 minutes, any minor pain won't last long either.
Afterward, as mentioned above, you may experience some temporary swelling, redness, or bruising, but these side effects are usually very manageable. They almost always can be treated with ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers.
What Is the Difference Between Dermal Fillers & Botox™?
Both dermal fillers and Botox remain popular ways to treat similar conditions, such as fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging. This causes many clients to assume that the procedures are the same, just different names. However, there is a fundamental difference between the two.
- How Dermal Fillers Work
Dermal fillers are primarily used to add volume and fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging, gravity, or other factors. They can also be used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers are typically made of hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid. When injected, they physically add volume to the treated area, "filling in" lines and wrinkles and providing a plumper, smoother appearance.
- How Botox Works
Botox is used to temporarily relax the muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles that appear with facial expressions like smiling or frowning. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. When the muscles can't contract as strongly, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It does not add volume like dermal fillers do.
