We discuss everything from rhinoplasty techniques to how long dermal fillers last in our detailed and informative blogs.
When some people think about having a cosmetic procedure performed, they immediately think about surgical procedures. However, you do not have to turn to surgery in order to improve your appearance or to help fight the aging process. There are many completely non-surgical treatments available that can help you address issues like wrinkles and sagging skin. One of the best ways to defy the aging process in a non-surgical way is with dermal fillers. If you are unfamiliar with how dermal fillers work, the first thing that you should know is that there are a lot of different brands that are available, and each one is designed to help a particular problem. Some dermal fillers can add volume to the lips, others can add value to the cheeks in order to address the loss of volume, others are designed for filling in wrinkles or indentations, and some can even be used on the hands and other parts of the body. Some of these are based on hyaluronic acid, others are based on collagen, and others are based on synthetic ingredients. Take time to learn about the different options that are available when it comes to choosing which one is right for you. Injecting the dermal filler is a process that should only be done by a licensed medical professional. The process is a mixture of a medical knowledge and artistic skill. You need to be honest when it comes to explaining what improvements you would like to see. When you and the medical professional who you work with both understand your goals, you will get to enjoy the best results. Some people think of individuals who have completely unrealistic facial features when they think of those who have had dermal filler injections. They think of people who have giant lips or cheeks that look unrealistically large. Fortunately, this is a myth. We will only provide you with treatments that can help you defy aging in a very subtle and natural way. Depending on the dermal filler that you choose, it may contain lidocaine or a similar numbing agent in order to prevent you from feeling any discomfort. There are a variety of methods that can be used to help you feel comfortable during the treatment process. One of the best things about using dermal fillers to defy aging is that you get immediate results. As soon as the filler has been injected, there is more volume in the area. Depending on the brand that you go with, you may be able to enjoy the results of your treatment for up to a year or two. In some cases, the ingredients in the filler may continue to benefit your skin in addition to adding volume. The benefits of dermal fillers speak for themselves.
