Achieving great skin has become easier than ever, thanks to aesthetic procedures. Whether you’re concerned about acne marks, fine lines, facial wrinkles, or sagging skin, treatment is available to ensure you achieve your skincare goals.
One of the most popular procedures are dermal fillers, which are gel-like substances injected under the skin to create a smoother or fuller appearance. In the hands of qualified providers, you can achieve younger-looking skin in the most natural way.
Interested? Let’s talk about what dermal fillers are and what you can expect during a dermal filler appointment.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are considered to be an excellent treatment option if you’re after a fuller, healthier appearance.
Also known as soft tissue fillers, dermal fillers help
• Restore volume to cheeks and temples,
• Reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars,
• Plump lips,
• Smooth creases and folds, and
• Fill in tear troughs (under-eye hollows).
In some cases, injectable fillers are also for nonsurgical nose jobs, as well as sculpting the jawline and adding projection to a weak chin.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Different types of dermal fillers vary based on their respective ingredients. Here are some of them:
• Calcium hydroxylapatite — Treats moderate-to-severe creases and enhance the fullness of cheeks and facial contours
• Hyaluronic acid — Improves skin contours and reduces depressions brought about by scars, injury, or age
• Polylactic acid — Plumps thin lips and treat deep nasolabial folds
Among these options, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the most popular because of their ability to dissolve easier than ingredients.
What to Expect at a Dermal Fillers Appointment
If you’re interested in getting dermal fillers in Edmonton, AB, here are some tips to help you prepare during your visit.
Prior to getting dermal fillers, your injector will discuss first your desired result. Once we identify your treatment areas, we will decide the best type of filler that can help you achieve your skincare goals.
Once we’ve worked out the details, the treatment area will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied, if needed, to ensure that you’ll feel comfortable all throughout the procedure.
The treatment itself is quick and relatively painless. Hence, you can just relax while an experienced and licensed healthcare provider does the procedure.
Dermal fillers are slowly injected with a needle or blunt-tipped cannula. Once done, the treated area will be massaged gently to ensure that the fillers are distributed evenly.
Each injection takes only minutes, while the entire cosmetic procedure can take an hour especially if there are multiple treatment areas.
Post Treatment Aftercare
After the procedure, you’ll see more volume or smoother skin. It’s also natural to see some swelling or bruising, which will go away on its own after a few days.
After the treatment, touchup sessions may be necessary to ensure that you maintain young and natural-looking results.
Are you ready to restore volume and breathe youthful radiance into your skin? Dermal fillers are a great place to start.
