Dermal fillers are less invasive than cosmetic surgery, but highly effective as skin rejuvenation treatments
Dr. Roly Borges is a New York based expert in injectable rejuvenation techniques. His experience includes dermal fillers, platelet rich plasma and radiofrequency treatments like Pelleve.
There are different kinds of dermal fillers available, which means that there is a suitable option for each area. What works for nasolabial folds may not necessarily work for your forehead.
Fillers are an affordable solution to treat specific wrinkles, they do not require long recovery processes and the actual injections are administered in very quick visits to the doctor.
Localized redness and swelling are common symptoms after facial injections. However, it is important to tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, as some substances could increase bleeding and bruising.
Injectable dermal fillers have several uses, some are more suitable for lip plumping and others to minimize wrinkles. A qualified doctor can evaluate your needs and suggest the best product for your case. This is one of the main reasons why you should only choose experienced and certified professionals.
Fillers like Juvederm, made of hyaluronic acid, have a natural feeling due to its gel consistency. Additionally, they stimulate collagen production, so the treated area looks fresh and continues to improve long after the treatment.
Dermal filler effects last an average of 4 to 6 months. It depends on how your body reacts to the components of the product and your skin’s health. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, becoming more vulnerable to wrinkles and face lines.
Some injectable fillers already have lidocaine or similar substances to minimize discomfort. However, even if that is not the case, your doctor can apply a numbing cream to the area and minimize the pain related to face injections.
Injectables are perfect for those who do not have time to recover from cosmetic surgeries or are not willing to undergo such procedures just yet. The fillers can provide an immediate, affordable and less invasive solution to several skin rejuvenation concerns.
Make sure to discuss any potential side effects with the doctor before the injections. It will not only give you an idea of what to expect, but also help you decide which of the doctor’s suggestion you feel comfortable with.
One of the most common concerns about anti-aging injectable treatments is an allergic reaction. As we mentioned before, there are several products available and they all have different components to consider. Make sure to tell your doctor about any previous allergic reaction to medication. Also, don’t forget to notify the doctor of any medications you are taking at the time of the treatment or recent past.
Dermal fillers are FDA approved to treat face wrinkles, lines and folds. Their use is not approved for hand or feet rejuvenation or breast augmentation. At any point, you can visit the FDA website for detailed information on approved fillers.
Localized symptoms like redness, minimal pain, bruising and swelling are common. However, they are only temporary, call your doctor if they persist.
Medication like Aspirins and blood thinners may increase bruising, ask your doctor if you stop taking them prior to your facial injections.
Dermal fillers require no downtime, patients can return to their routines immediately after the procedure.
Patients are often concerned about having an allergic reaction or experiencing side effects to dermal fillers. However, there is another risk to consider. An infection due to poor hygienic standards could take place if the person administering the injections is not a certified professional. Also, an experienced doctor will know how to evaluate your case and suggest the best product. Make sure to contact a certified and reliable professional to avoid potential unwanted effects.
