What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are FDA approved treatments to restore a loss of volume and smooth wrinkles and facial lines. Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by aging, sun damage, fat loss, heredity, gravity, and muscle action. The dermal fillers used at Your Wellness Center MedSpa are comprised of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body used to provide a youthful look through volume and fullness of the skin.
What areas can be injected?
The areas that can be injected include the temples, cheeks, under the eyes, lips, and the facial lines that form around the nose and mouth.
What is the treatment like?
Our certified injectors will first discuss your desires and then create an individualized treatment plan with you. We offer complimentary consultations to discuss the estimated amount of dermal filler needed and a general estimate of the treatment cost. With an established plan, the provider will use a fine needle to inject the dermal filler into the skin, resulting in minimal to moderate discomfort. Some of the dermal fillers contain lidocaine (an anesthetic) which will help numb the treatment site. The treatment will take less than 30 minutes and requires no downtime.
How often will I need injections?
These injections produce instant results. This treatment is temporary and re-treatment typically occurs every 6 months. However, some dermal fillers last up to 2 years.
What are the side effects?
The most commonly report side effects include lumps/bumps, redness, tenderness, and swelling at the injection site. Another common side effect is bruising. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications may increase this risk. Temporarily discontinuing these medications ten days prior to the dermal filler injection may help decrease these symptoms..
