Aging changes your skin and your face structure, and in doing so, it can negatively impact your appearance and your confidence. Thanks to facial fillers, living with the signs of aging is now entirely optional. At The Facebar Aesthetic Medicine in Pasadena, MD, we offer cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers that can transform your appearance and turn back the clock on aging. These fillers restore youth, add volume, and help you look and feel like your more youthful self again.
What Are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers go by many names, including cosmetic injectables, dermal fillers, and anti-aging medicine. As the skin ages, the essential proteins and natural substances that keep the skin youthful, like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, begin to decrease production. As a result, the skin loses volume. These fillers work to replenish volume, plump the skin, and restore youth.
What Do Fillers Treat?
Dermal fillers are incredibly versatile. Not only can they treat and erase the signs of aging on the face, but they can also enhance facial features. They can be used to effectively treat:
- Fine to severe lines and wrinkles
- Volume loss in the cheeks
- Nasolabial folds
- Facial creases
- Marionette lines
- Sagging jawline
- Drooping and sagging skin
- Under-eye hollows
- Thinning lips
- Vertical lip lines (lip wrinkles)
- Acne or general facial scars
What Happens During Treatment?
To begin your treatment, we will first schedule an initial consultation. A consultation may seem like a formality, but it is an important part of the process. It allows us to confirm that you are a good candidate for treatment so we can create a customized treatment plan that is unique to your needs.
We’ll review your health history, confirm that you aren’t allergic to the product ingredients, and then schedule your injection, the appointment that will help you reach all of your aesthetic and anti-aging goals.
The Injection Process
To begin the session, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to your treatment site to ensure optimal comfort during the injections. Then, our advanced injector will administer the facial fillers to your desired locations, which will immediately improve the appearance of your problem areas. The entire appointment will take 45 to 60 minutes to complete, and then you can resume all of your daily activities.
How Long Will the Results Last?
You will notice an immediate improvement in your problem areas as soon as your injections are administered, and your results will continue to improve for approximately two weeks as the filler settles below the surface of your skin. The benefit of dermal fillers is that the results are long-lasting. The total time that your results will last varies based on which and how much product is used during treatment, and how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients.
That being said, most dermal fillers provide results that last anywhere from six months to upwards of two years. During your initial consultation, we’ll choose the best product for your needs and, at that point, can provide you with a better idea of how long your results will last.
Revitalizing Your Appearance
If the signs of aging have begun to affect more than just your appearance and are slowly draining your confidence, facial fillers can change everything. They provide a safe and effective way to erase the signs of aging, enhance the features, and restore your confidence for months on end.
