The benefits of dermal fillers, also sometimes referred to as "skinjectibles," are visible for 6 to 12 months.
Dermal fillers may be used to:
Plump thin lips
Enhance shallow contours
Soften facial creases/wrinkles
Enhance recessed scars, including acne
This in-office procedure can be completed within an hour. Recovery varies for each patient, and for the type of filler injected. Plan to resume most activities right away, but it is generally recommended to avoid intense physical activity for the first 24 -48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.
The initial response following treatment may include:
Swelling or bruising ranging from mild to severe
Temporary numbness or redness
Palpable lumps or hard areas at the injection sites
These reactions will improve steadily within hours or a few days. They can be alleviated with an ice pack and massage.
Dermal filler therapies pair beautifully with other aesthetic treatments. Following your consultation, your technician will offer suggestions on how you could best benefit from this wonderful treatment.
