Dermal Fillers For Facial Wrinkles

Dermal filler are as unique as you are and they are designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, dermal fillers soften lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. Make sure that you use only dermal fillers with body-friendly materials and a proven record of consistent and safe results.

Many dermal fillers use substances that are naturally absorbed by the body over time. Results from such fillers will last for a matter of months, and subsequent injections may be needed to maintain the result. The amount of time that results may last, will depend on the filler as well as the patient, some patients metabolize dermal fillers more quickly than others. After the original injection, subsequent injections should be considered as touch-ups.

In the same way you arrange annual appointments with a dentist to assure the health of your teeth, you may wish to schedule quarterly meetings with your cosmetic nurse to maintain the youthful appearance of your face with dermal fillers.

What Can You Expect ?

Our Skin Essentials nurses have years of experience performing hundreds of dermal filler injections per year. If you have been troubled by skin with a wrinkled or aged appearance, or if you want a more youthful, fresh appearance, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled injectors, where they can determine what type of dermal filler would be best suited for your needs.

At Skin Essentials, we often times use dermal fillers in conjunction with BOTOX®. This combination both relaxes the muscles and decreases the appearance of wrinkles, for a youthful, smoother, and healthier appearance. This non-invasive combination procedure has results that can last up to a year.

If you are interested in receiving this injectable combination, dermal fillers and BOTOX®, be sure to mention your interest to your nurse during your initial consultation and receive a discount on your treatment.

What Should You As A Patient Know About Dermal Fillers?
  • Side effects of dermal fillers are minimal, and can be expected to go away within a few days. These side effects may include itching and minor swelling of the injected area, as well as some redness and tenderness in the injected area, as is to be expected from any medical injection. In order to reduce these effects, patients may wish to ice the treated area after the injection.
  • To prevent increased bruising, patients may also wish to refrain from taking antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, or aspirin prior to receiving injections for dermal fillers.
  • Dermal fillers are an excellent alternative to invasive surgery procedures. As a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime, visible results, and a proven record of safety and efficiency, dermal fillers are appropriate for most people in good general health.
  • If you have never received a dermal filler injection or tend to be more sensitive to needles, you may ask your nurse if a numbing agent is an option.
