    What are Dermal Fillers?

    Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds. They add volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness due to aging, such as smile lines, marionette lines around the mouth, and hollowness under the eyes. Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that retains moisture and provides volume to the skin. When injected into facial tissue, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers provide a smoother, more youthful appearance. One unique advantage of HA dermal fillers is that their results can be reversed if needed, giving patients considering dermal filler treatments some reassurance in case they are not happy with the results.

    The Dermal Filler Procedure

    The dermal filler procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that involves a few key steps:
    Consultation
    The process begins with a consultation where Dr. Vitenas assesses your facial features and discusses your aesthetic goals. This information is used to create a personalized treatment plan.
    On the day of the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort during the injections.
    Dr. Vitenas then carefully injects the chosen dermal filler into the skin using a very fine needle. The exact placement and depth of the injections are crucial for achieving the desired results.
    After the injections, the treated area might be gently massaged to ensure the even distribution of the filler and to smooth any lumps.
    You may be asked to stay in the clinic for a short while after the procedure for observation, to ensure there is no immediate allergic reaction or complications.
    A follow-up appointment may be scheduled to assess the results and determine if additional treatments are necessary.

    Recovery After Dermal Filler Treatment

    The recovery process after dermal filler treatment is typically minimal. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, strenuous physical activity should be avoided for a few days to allow for healing.
    Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some redness, minor swelling, and mild bruising at the injection sites. These side effects should subside within a few days. If they persist, it’s important to contact your doctor.
    To help minimize swelling and bruising, you can apply a cold compress to the treatment area for 15 minutes every hour. Also, it’s recommended to avoid alcohol and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the procedure.

    Natural-Looking Dermal Filler Results

    The results of dermal filler treatments are often noticeable immediately after the procedure. Patients can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows. The fillers work by adding volume to the treatment area, resulting in a smoother, fuller, and more youthful appearance.

    The final results of your dermal filler treatment will typically last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, with some fillers lasting for up to 2 years. Regular follow-up treatments can help maintain your youthful appearance.

    Over time, the body naturally metabolizes the filler, but the results can be maintained with regular follow-up treatments. It’s important to remember that individual results may vary, and the longevity of the results depends on the type of filler used, the area treated, and the individual’s metabolism.
