The effects of aging can be seen nearly everywhere on our body. Living an energetic, active, or stressful life can make these effects more apparent. Perhaps nowhere are the effects of aging more noticeable than the face.
Although nothing can slow aging, injectable dermal fillers have been used for many years to successfully and safely slow or even reverse the effects. As technology and research behind cosmetic and aesthetic formulas and procedures have advanced, the number of dermal treatment options has also increased.
Although their methods may vary, the ease and recovery from dermal filler treatments are relatively similar. In some cases, such as BOTOX®, the muscles in specific areas are blocked from contracting, smoothing the skin. Other fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, use hyaluronic acid to draw in nearby water molecules to add volume in a specific area.
Regardless of the type, the treatment sessions last less than 30 minutes, and there is little to no recovery or restrictions after. For the first day or two after each treatment, you may feel soreness and mild redness around the injection site. This is normal and begins to fade very quickly.
It is advised to avoid strenuous activity for a few days after treatment and avoid impact on the treated area for at least a week to achieve the best results. Most patients, however, return to their everyday life without restriction as soon as they leave the office.
Though dermal fillers are very effective at smoothing lines and wrinkles or adding volume to the face, many filler types can work together to create a more holistic aesthetic approach to reversing the signs of aging. Dr. Rick Silverman will work with you to develop a custom plan that best meets your aesthetic goals while maintaining a natural look.
