Schedule your dermal filler consultation at A Younger You Med Spa to discuss which dermal filler can help you achieve your desired results.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that are used to replenish volume to areas that may appear sunken, wrinkled, or saggy.
Dermal fillers have a gel consistency which creates a soft, supple feeling similar to naturally firm and youthful tissue. Dermal fillers have become one of the most popular types of cosmetic treatment as an affordable and convenient alternative to surgical procedures. A Younger You Med Spa in DeLand offers a variety of dermal fillers to help you realize a younger you!
Dermal fillers provide a multi-faceted solution to skin aging.
In addition to the increase in volume, which is evident immediately upon injection, dermal fillers also contain skin-enhancing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found within the body. Its primary purpose is to promote moisture retention in soft tissues. When injected, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers not only create instant volume but also boost the skin’s moisture retention and collagen production.
As a result, these fillers improve the skin’s tone, texture, and elasticity over the following months. Dermal fillers may be used to restore volume and rejuvenate skin in several areas of the face, as well as the hands. Dermal fillers are commonly used to increase volume in the cheeks, plump the lips, reduce the appearance of lines on the forehead, erase lines around the nose and mouth, reduce the appearance of scars, or augment the chin or nose.
When you arrive for your dermal filler injection treatment, your skin will be sanitized and prepped with a topical anesthetic before injections are administered. Depending on the size and number of areas being treated, treatment may take 15 minutes up to 1 hour. There is no downtime following dermal filler injections. However, exercise should be avoided for 24 hours to prevent the fillers from spreading away from target areas.
Facial fillers are metabolized by the body over time. Results from dermal filler injections can last anywhere from 3 months to 2 years depending on the treatment area and product used. Results may be maintained with follow-up treatments.
A Younger You Med Spa offers Radiesse, Revanesse, and Restylane dermal fillers.
Radiesse dermal fillers are ideal for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (including nasolabial folds, or the deep lines which run from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It is also commonly used to restore volume in the backs of the hands.
Revanesse is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is used to treat wrinkles and folds in the face.
Restylane dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid and are used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles, restore volume to the backs of the hands, or plump the lips.
Dermal fillers, while considered safe, can cause side effects. Dermal fillers may cause redness, swelling, skin rash, itching, bruising, or small pimples. There are also risks of asymmetry, infection at injection sites, lumps, bleeding, scarring, and rarely, skin necrosis or blindness.
Intense heat should be avoided until swelling and redness have subsided. The consumption of alcohol as well as strenuous exercise may worsen bruising.
It is typically recommended to schedule follow-up treatments 18 to 24 months apart.
Dermal fillers are an effective and generally safe option regardless of age or gender. However, there are some conditions that may contraindicate the use of dermal fillers. Smokers and those with severe allergies should also avoid dermal fillers.
While the purpose of fillers is to deliver volume, botulinum toxins such as Botox temporarily paralyze muscles in the area in which they are injected to reduce dynamic wrinkles. Botulinum toxin does not increase volume.
