WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DERMAL FILLERS
There are some things in life that you just can’t avoid, and aging is one of them.
You might notice the signs of aging on your face through the loss of volume from decreased collagen levels.
Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. Dermal fillers are a great treatment option for many people, and Vanitas Medical Group is proud to offer both Juvéderm and Restylane. How can these treatments help you? Learn more here!
The Basics of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a great way to plump up the skin, effectively eliminating some folds and furrows from the face. The treatments we use contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that your body already produces. This ingredient works by hydrating your cells, naturally plumping up and restoring volume to the treatment area.
One of the main reasons that hyaluronic acid fillers are thought to be effective is because they might be able to stimulate the production of new collagen. Collagen and elastin naturally decrease in the skin as you age, which results in loss of volume.
By stimulating the production of new collagen with dermal fillers, you gain long-term results in addition to the short-term gains in volume that come from plumping up the volume of the cells.
Dermal Fillers is a very versatile treatment option because it has five FDA-approved formulas that target different parts of the face:
Filling in hollow cheekbones
Softening fine lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds
Contouring and shaping the chin
One of the benefits of going with filler treatment is its longevity. Provided that you take care of your skin with quality products following treatment, you can see results last for one to two years. These fillers are great for busy professionals who have minimal time for pampering and follow-up appointments.
The Ideal Candidate for Treatments
The ideal candidate for Juvéderm or Restylane dermal fillers is someone who is starting to see the effects of aging on their face. If you can benefit from some added volume or you have a specific concern about your facial aesthetics, we can help.
Dermal fillers are minimally invasive, making them great for someone who doesn’t want a lot of downtime. They can yield great results without the need for surgical treatments such as facelifts. This is why many people will turn to dermal fillers first and leave surgical options until much later on.
If you think that you may be an ideal candidate for dermal fillers, we will meet with you to review your medical history and aesthetic goals. This will help us determine whether you are eligible for this type of treatment.
The Treatment Session
When you come in for your first treatment session with either Juvéderm or Restylane, the process is mostly the same. It won’t take long for us to administer your treatment, with appointments lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. You will be able to return to your busy schedule as soon as your appointment is over.
While you are with us, we will start by numbing your treatment area with a local anesthetic or a cream. We won’t administer your dermal fillers until the skin is sufficiently numbed and ready for it. Once it is, we will give you the injections, and you are free to leave to go about your day.
At Vanitas Medical Group, we believe in tailoring each treatment specifically to you.
If you feel that you could benefit from dermal fillers, we want to meet with you for a consultation in our Orlando, FL, office to come up with a customized approach to improving your skincare concerns. Give us a call today to book your first appointment!
