Looking for instant gratification? Facial fillers are as close as it gets. When this natural substance is skillfully injected, it can shave years off your appearance.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers, primarily used to re-volumize flat or hollow areas of the face. There are three general groups of fillers—thick, medium, and thinner—that are used to address lines found on different areas of the face, including the temples, under-eye circles, ear lobes, cheekbones, lips and lip lines, corners of the mouth or the “marionette area,” the “smile lines” found along your cheeks, and the pre-jowl area.
Will I look fake?
At Timeless Skin Solutions we provide our patients with beautiful, natural-looking results. Although some people may notice you look refreshed, they most likely won’t know why. An important point to note: as with any type of cosmetic procedure, it is important to get treated by an experienced provider with extensive knowledge and experience using injectables.
Does it hurt?
Dermal fillers can cause mild discomfort, however, some fillers such as Juvéderm® are formulated with lidocaine (a numbing medication) which can greatly decrease any pain that may be experienced at the time of the injection. Timeless ensures comfort at every step by employing specialized techniques before, during, and after your treatment. Many patients rate their pain level, on a scale of 1–10, as a 2–3.
Will there be any bruising?
There is typically minimal bruising and swelling which means you will be able to jump back into your normal daily routine. Much of the bruising and swelling that can occur with filler injections, particularly around the eyes or mouth, can be reduced by using cool compresses, Arnica and elevating the head of the bed. Most of the time, bruising and/or swelling can be concealed with make-up and is not very noticeable. For patients that experience more than minimal bruising, Timeless offers laser treatment follow up to aid in dissipating the bruise.
What if I don’t like it?
While we are confident you will be highly satisfied with your results, this treatment is reversible. Most filler products commonly used today, including Juvéderm and Restylane®, are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid can be reversed with an agent called hyaluronidase, a family of enzymes that break up the acid.
How long between treatments?
While fillers do break down over time due to enzymes in the body, dermal fillers are FDA-approved to last between six months and two years, depending on the type of filler used and where it is placed.
At Timeless we take pride in helping YOU look naturally youthful and radiant—and dermal filler is one of our favorite treatments to do so. As we are only a few weeks away from the holiday season, now is the perfect time to get ready for all the seasonal festivities.
