Injectable Facial Fillers Q & A
What are injectable facial fillers?
Injectable facial fillers are non-surgical cosmetic injections that add volume under your skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance your natural features. Many of the visible signs of aging develop due to the structural changes that occur to your skin as you get older, including a decrease in subcutaneous fat and collagen.
The subcutaneous fat keeps your skin plump and taut, while collagen provides strength, volume, and resilience. As you lose both fat and collagen, you may notice more facial lines and wrinkles, as well as sagging. Injectable facial fillers restore the lost volume and your youthful look.
Also called dermal fillers, injectable facial fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States. The cosmetic injections provide immediate results and little to no downtime.
What are the cosmetic uses of dermal fillers?
The team at Diamond Surgical Institute uses injectable facial fillers to meet many cosmetic concerns and beauty goals. Some of the most common cosmetic uses of dermal fillers include:
- Soften lines and creases
- Fill recessed acne scars
- Add volume to thin lips
- Lift sagging cheeks
- Fix facial deformities
The team at Diamond Surgical Institute also offers Botox® injections to smooth out crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. They may suggest you combine both non-surgical cosmetic treatments for a more dramatic look.
What happens during injectable facial filler treatment?
The team at Diamond Surgical Institute reviews the details of your injectable facial filler treatment at your consultation so you know what to expect and how to prepare. You have the non-surgical cosmetic treatment at the office, which usually takes an hour or less.
To minimize your discomfort, you receive a numbing agent for your skin prior to the injections. After cleansing your skin with an antibacterial agent, your provider injects the facial filler into specific areas of your face to get the desired results.
Though you may experience some redness at the site of your injections, you should see an improvement in your look immediately following your session. You can resume your usual activities after your injectable facial filler treatment. However, the team recommends you skip any strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
How long do injectable facial fillers last?
Your injectable facial filler treatment may last six or more months, depending on the type of facial filler used. Taking good care of your skin and health may prolong the length of your cosmetic treatment. This includes daily application of sunblock, eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and smoking cessation.
