Despite the skincare products we use (no matter how effective or expensive), aging is simply a fact of life. Many women and men today are seeking out antiaging treatments to address wrinkles that have a more profound effect on their face than any wrinkle cream or serum can offer. And, many people want a solution that can be done with little to no down time.
This is where dermal filler comes in.
Dermal filler in metro Detroit and across the globe has seen a dramatic increase over recent years, with an eight percent increase last year alone. Dermal fillers are low-risk options for treating lines, wrinkles and volume loss in the skin and have a much lighter price tag than the traditional facelift. What’s more, results are nearly instant.
However, there are some “rules” to keep in mind if you are considering being treated with dermal filler. Read on for more.
Less is more (especially at first)
When you decide to undergo a dermal filler treatment for the first time, it is wise to use less filler rather than more. This is because you can always return to your injector’s office for additional filler, whereas dissolving filler is a bit more difficult.
Further, you want to ensure you maintain a soft, natural look. And an over-filled face is not aesthetically pleasing.
It’s important to realize that dermal filler can work to plump up your face for a more youthful appearance. However, it won’t change your overall appearance or your natural facial structure. At the end of the day, you will still (and should!) look like you. Just a more vibrant you.
Choose the right injector and type of filler
A major key to getting the result you desire with dermal filler is to choose an experienced injector. While many doctors are able to administer filler, it is important that your injector be in tune with the proper techniques to offer a beautiful result with minimal side effects like bruising.
Further, it’s key to heed your injector’s advice when it comes to the type of filler to use. We find great success with Juvederm Voluma, a filler made of hyaluronic acid (a component that is naturally in the body). Juvederm Voluma is perfect for adding volume beneath the skin for added lift and contour of the cheek area for up to nine months. And it contains an added anesthetic to keep patients comfortable during the treatment.
