Dermal fillers are used to replace the volume that we naturally lose with age or to enhance or correct certain facial features. Dermal fillers are an excellent option for anyone looking to restore youthful fullness to the face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles. This treatment is a favorite among those seeking a naturally refreshed look and provides lasting results, often up to a year or longer. Also referred to as a “liquid facelift,” treatment with dermal fillers will provide individuals with many similar desirable results without the recovery or downtime associated with surgery.
At Believe Aesthetics, dermal filler injections are performed with artisan skill by our nurse injector. In San Antonio, we offer several types of dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM, Voluma, and Restylane to ensure the best individualized results. After discussing your specific treatment goals and determining which dermal filler is best for you, topical anesthetic is applied to numb the treatment area so discomfort is usually minimal. Also, most dermal fillers include an anesthetic in the mixture to further minimize any discomfort. The actual injections will take just a few minutes total, and just seconds per site.
Dermal filler results are seen immediately; however, full results are usually visible within one week of treatment. Depending upon your desired results, several syringes can be administered at one time for full correction or over the course of a few weeks if you are seeking a subtler change over time. Scars and deep lines often require multiple injections to achieve desired results. The rule of thumb for estimating how much dermal filler you need to rejuvenate your face is one syringe per decade. For example, if you are 40, you may need 4 syringes of dermal filler or if you are 50, you may need 5.
Made primarily from hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are safe and have few complications when administered by a professional injector. Local injection site reactions such as swelling, bruising and itching are the most commonly reported complaints. These reactions can be prevented through proper injection technique and following specific pre and post procedure instructions provided by your nurse injector.
