Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved substances that work to restore elasticity and volume loss in your face as part of a facial aesthetic treatment. Your aesthetics specialist at Weight Loss and Vitality might recommend dermal fillers to fight against wrinkles and fine lines and avoid surgery.

Dermal fillers are instrumental in fixing any of the following cosmetic issues.

  • Scars
  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Crow’s feet
  • Fine lines
  • Lip fullness
  • Facial contours

Your specialist can use many different types of dermal fillers to address these issues.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

There are countless dermal fillers products. Your specialist can recommend a combination of a few for the best results possible.

Juvéderm® and Volbella®

Juvéderm and Volbella fill in lines, wrinkles, and can plump areas of your face that have suffered from volume loss by hydrating your skin with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body. It can successfully add volume to your skin while simultaneously delivering moisture and nutrients.

Radiesse® 

Radiesse is mainly used to address nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It uses hydroxylapatite to enhance and contour your facial features.

Restylane®  

Restylane uses hyaluronic acid to smooth out lines and lift deep wrinkles. Your specialist might also recommend Restylane as part of a lip augmentation treatment plan.

Voluma® 

Voluma specifically targets your cheek area by plumping areas of volume loss.

What happens during a dermal filler treatment?

Before starting your dermal filler treatment, your Weight Loss and Vitality specialist starts by giving you a numbing agent to anesthetize the injection site. Once the area is sufficiently numb, they can inject your preferred dermal filler.

Immediately following the injection, you might experience some slight swelling and discomfort, which can last a few days but should fade shortly after that. If this is not the case, get in touch with Weight Loss and Vitality for a follow-up visit.

You should avoid strenuous activities for several days after the procedure. Nonetheless, you should be able to resume your daily activities without any difficulty. Your dermal filler treatment should last anywhere between six months to years, depending on the product and how your body responds.

Dermal fillers can give you the results you want without the need for surgical intervention. Schedule an appointment at Weight Loss and Vitality today by phone or online to learn more about their benefits.
