Blog Dermal Fillers
November 22nd 2020
Dermal fillers plump and lift the skin gently to treat volume loss caused by your body’s natural aging process or to plump wrinkles, lines, and scars. Certain dermal fillers can even stimulate your body’s natural collagen production process to replace lost collagen over time for longer-lasting results. Most of today’s dermal fillers are 100% natural. During your initial consultation at our Leawood or Liberty office, we will discuss your goals and create a filler treatment plan tailored to you.
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® & Restylane® use a pure natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a chemical found in every cell in your body. Since Dermal fillers are injected into the deep layers of your facial tissue, they can smooth the appearance of moderate wrinkles and replace lost tissue volume. Dermal fillers replicate the body’s own hyaluronic production to provide fullness in the areas they are injected.
Other fillers, like Sculptra® or Radiesse®, use other natural substances to not only immediately fill wrinkles and other facial features but also stimulate your body’s natural collagen production process to provide longer-lasting results.
Most clients who receive dermal fillers see visible wrinkle reduction for six months to two years following their initial treatment.
Patients that combine treatments see better, faster results than doing one treatment alone. Talk to one of our professional team members today about potential cost savings when you book multiple treatments together!
AesthetiCare is an international training center for a wide variety of aesthetic procedures. We have trained over 1,200 clinics across North America and are considered a leader in the aesthetic field.
During your personalized consultation, we will thoroughly educate you on the benefits and risks of dermal fillers. We will also take photos of your treatment area(s).
As an option, your injector can apply a layer of numbing cream to the treatment area(s).
After the treatment area(s) are marked and the vial is prepared, we will inject the dermal filler into the predetermined areas.
You may experience slight swelling after your procedure. A cold compress can be used immediately after injection to reduce swelling. Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided immediately after the treatment.
Over time it is natural to lose volume in the face, which will create hollow and sagging skin. Dermal fillers will naturally combat this aging process using hyaluronic acid or other natural substances found in the body..
Different types and levels of Dermal fillers are available, including Juvéderm, Juvéderm Voluma, Radiesse, Voluma, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Belotero, and Sculptra. Whether you are a client with minor to moderate tissue volume loss or with moderate to severe wrinkles and folds we can provide a treatment to address your concerns.
While we do use a needle to inject the dermal filler, most clients find the procedure very tolerable. We utilize topical numbing cream as well as injected lidocaine to ensure your comfort.
Results will vary depending on your age and the cosmetic zone(s) treated. Most people will see results that last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.
Botox / Dysport are neurotoxins that address dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Dermal fillers replace lost tissue volume due to the natural aging process and can plump out deeper set or non-dynamic wrinkles.
Post-treatment you may experience minor swelling in the treated area. This usually resolves itself in 1-3 days. As with any injection, there is the possibility of bruising which can last to anywhere from 1-7 days.
