A desire to look our best is not uncommon. Humans have exhibited this desire throughout hundreds of years, using a variety of strategies to ward off the cosmetic signs of aging. It’s safe to say that we have developed an array of far more sophisticated methods dermal fillers than our ancestors had at their disposal. Today, men and women who want to address their cosmetic concerns can do so with surgery like the facelift. However, far more often, we meet people who want to avoid surgery, at least for the time being. In these situations, may be ideal. This is why.
Dermal fillers get immediate results.
Do you know that little phrase, instant gratification? Yes, it’s something we’ve come to expect these days. It’s one of the best things about dermal fillers. People come into our Cincinnati office with deep laugh lines, flat cheeks, thin lips, or depressed scars and they walk out looking quite a bit different. This is because dermal fillers deposit specific chemicals like hyaluronic acid to add volume at a precise depth beneath the skin’s surface. Because providers can see the effects of dermal fillers while they are administering treatment, there is little risk (in experienced hands) of overfilling.
Dermal filler treatment needs no downtime.
Historically, plastic surgery has been the only way to correct the signs of aging. Plastic surgery cuts and repositions tissue. This is an excellent way to achieve long-term results. However, there is some downtime needed to allow swelling and bruising to subside. With dermal fillers, we avoid that. Most patients go right back to their normal activities with minimal redness and pinpoint swelling at injection sites.
The results of dermal filler treatment last for months.
Since the first dermal fillers were developed several years ago, a number of formulations have emerged. The reason for the wide selection of dermal fillers has to do with the density of the strands of volumizing particles. Density makes some fillers great for softer areas like the lips and others ideal for adding structure to curved areas like the cheeks. While individual results can vary, softer fillers can last up to nine months, while more cohesive fillers like Juvéderm Voluma can last up to two years.
