Are you struggling with hollow cheeks or sullen, aged under-eyes? Do you want to have a plumper pout or sculpted cheekbones? These are common cosmetic issues that can all be resolved with injectable fillers. Dermal fillers work beneath the skin to increase volume, restoring a more youthful appearance and enhancing certain facial features.
Simply Radiant in Las Vegas, NV, offers injectable fillers that can transform your appearance by adding volume to your face. In this guide, you can learn more about dermal fillers and how they can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that can be used to add volume under the skin. The goal is typically to create a more youthful appearance by increasing fullness in the cheeks or under the eyes. Dermal fillers for face enhancement can be used to accentuate the cheekbones, plump thin lips, or strengthen the jawline.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Injectable fillers contain a gel solution that is composed of hyaluronic acid and sometimes collagen. While these components are found in abundance in youthful skin, they begin to decline as you age. A decrease in hyaluronic acid and collagen is what causes volume loss in the cheeks, under the eyes, and in other areas of the body.
Dermal fillers restore youthful fullness by adding hyaluronic acid and collagen back into the skin and, in some cases, stimulating new collagen production. This can effectively give you plumper cheeks and under-eyes that look much younger. This increased volume can also enhance thin lips, soft cheekbones, or a weak jawline area.
What Are the Benefits of Getting Dermal Fillers?
Injectable fillers are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments because they offer a wide variety of aesthetic benefits. These may include the following:
- Plumping thin lips
- Creating more prominent cheekbones
- Strengthening the jawline
- Adding fullness to hollow cheeks
- Restoring volume around the eyes
Patients also enjoy dermal fillers because they are such a simple procedure. There is no need for anesthesia, incisions, sutures, or scarring. Fillers are an outpatient treatment, which means you’ll be able to go home immediately after they’re done, without any recovery or downtime required.
Am I a Good Candidate for Injectable Fillers?
Dermal fillers for face enhancement are a great option for many of our clients. Men and women of various ages may want plumper lips, stronger cheekbones, or a more sculpted jawline.
Clients who are seeking dermal fillers for age-related volume loss are typically in their late 30s and older. It is around this age that volume loss under the skin becomes more noticeable, leaving clients with the following signs of aging:
- Sullen under-eyes
- Sagging jowls
- Hollow cheeks
- Loose, hanging facial skin
If you are curious about dermal fillers and wondering whether you would benefit from this treatment, you can seek a consultation with a Simply Radiant cosmetic medicine provider. We will examine your skin and assess any age-related changes to determine whether injectable fillers are a good option for you.
How Is Dermal Filler Treatment Performed?
Whether you receive dermal fillers for face enhancement or to address volume loss, the procedure is incredibly simple. During your treatment, you’ll be able to sit back in a reclined position and relax comfortably while one of our professionals administers your injections.
The dermal filler process begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. This is to provide optimal comfort throughout your treatment. Once this has taken effect and your skin is numb, we will begin to gently administer your injections in the treatment areas.
These areas may be marked before we administer the injections to provide for complete accuracy. For most patients, dermal fillers are injected in the cheeks, lips, under-eyes, or along the jawline. Your treatment areas will be discussed and determined during your consultation appointment.
The entire dermal filler process takes about 20 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the needs of each patient. Once your injections have been administered, you will be free to return home and resume your normal activities.
When Will I See the Results of My Injectable Fillers?
The results of your dermal filler injections will develop over the 24 to 48 hours following your treatment. You will see a gradual increase in the volume underneath the skin in your treatment areas. Most clients see the final result on the third or fourth day after their session.
Are Injectable Fillers Permanent?
Injectable fillers do not produce permanent results. The duration of your fillers will depend on several factors. This includes the brand of filler used, the amount of filler injected, and the treatment area where it was administered.
Fillers can last anywhere from three months to one year, depending on these factors. As time goes on, you may notice that the volume under your skin will begin to decrease as the fillers dissolve. Once the effects of your fillers have subsided, you will be able to seek further injections to maintain your desired appearance.
