What are dermal fillers?
Some individuals find some surgical procedures frightening. If you are one of those individuals who want to rejuvenate your face but you are fearful of doing a surgical procedure, dermal fillers might be the perfect alternative.
Dermal fillers can:
- Bring back the fullness of your face
- Plump your lips and cheeks
- Fill in fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases
- Contour your jaw line
- Lighten scars
Dermal fillers have been identified as “liquid facelifts” since they provide several of the benefits that a surgical facelift does without the downtime and at a lower cost. However, the effects are not permanent so it is recommended that the patient undergo repeated sessions to maintain the fresh, rejuvenated appearance.
Dermal fillers that originated from non-human resources must go through a pre-treatment allergy test before injected into the patient.
Dermal fillers are usually injected to the patient’s facial areas that lack volume and areas with fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases. The patient can continue his/her activities immediately since there is no downtime.
The patient must not rub the treated region to keep the fillers undisturbed. Swelling, slight bruising and redness might be experienced but this will fade in a few days.
Dermal fillers are effective to revitalize your appearance, but if you opt for an everlasting solution, have a discussion with our surgeons about a face lift, eye lift or brow lift.
