If you’ve grown tired of using topical skincare products that might take forever to show desirable results (if any) and are unsure about undergoing a surgical aesthetic procedure to look younger, you may want to try dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are one of the most effective yet safe and convenient facial rejuvenation treatments that can do wonders for your skin.
Read on to know more.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft-gel injectables that are placed right under the skin to restore age-related volume loss.
Basically, aging, along with diminishing collagen and elastin production and other environmental factors, can result in the formation of multiple signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and texture.
The dermal filler procedure restores the volume loss while promoting the skin’s natural collagen production, making it appear fuller, vibrant, and youthful from within.
Things Dermal Fillers Can Do To Rejuvenate Your Skin
Dermal fillers have several benefits that can help reverse the signs of aging, some of them are:
- Smooth lines and facial creases (such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines)
- Add volume to sunken cheeks
- Enhance your facial contours
- Even out deep pitted scars
- Improve your skin texture
- Rejuvenate your complexion
- Plump your lips
- Add volume to under-eye hollows
- Restore your face’s natural symmetry
Types Of Dermal Fillers
At Allure, we care about our clients and use only top-of-the-line fillers, such as:
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of the most commonly used types of fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring compound that adds elasticity and fullness to your skin while hydrating it from the inside out.
- JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® is used to add volume to your sunken cheeks and to refine your chin profile.
- JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE®, JUVÉDERM® Ultra, and Ultra Plus are preferred for overall facial rejuvenation because they can smooth lines, facial wrinkles, and creases such as nasolabial folds.
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra can also be used for lip augmentation as well as to add volume to your thinning lips.
- JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is best suited for smoothing lines and wrinkles around your mouth, as well as for filling in under eye hollows.
Revanesse Versa® Fillers
Like Juvederm, Versa fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. They’re an excellent option for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
This filler’s use of high-quality hyaluronic acid not only ensures beautiful, natural-looking results but also long-lasting ones.
Radiesse fillers are made of microspheres of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is a biocompatible substance that can be found in your bones. This substance is then combined with a gel carrier.
Unlike HA-based fillers, Radiesse is a thicker material that’s more suitable for the cheeks and jawline. Thanks to its consistency, it’s less likely to migrate to other areas.
Some other types of filler that we use at Allure Aesthetics include Belotero and Restylane.
What To Expect From The Dermal Filler Procedure
A dermal filler procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed within 30 to 45 minutes.
The treatment is virtually painless, but some people might feel slight redness and swelling at the injection site, but these usually resolve on their own.
The results of your dermal filler procedure can be seen almost immediately, but the final results become visible as soon as the mild swelling subsides.
Typically, the results can last anywhere between 6 to 12 months depending on the type of filler, area of concern, and most importantly, your body’s ability to metabolize the filler.
Although dermal filler procedures are safe for anyone who’s 18 years or older, the key to optimal results that don’t look overdone or unnatural can depend greatly on the expertise of a well-trained injector.
Our expert injectors at Allure Aesthetics and Medical Spa, Fayetteville, NC, are well-trained and highly skilled in performing dermal filler procedures. They have helped hundreds of people achieve remarkable results by creating customized treatment plans and performing each procedure with utmost care and consideration.
