Injectable Fillers

The visible signs of facial aging occur over time as a result of sun exposure, heredity and life style. One of the earliest signs of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of wrinkles. Softening of these facial lines and the restoration of volume and fullness in the face often can be achieved non-surgically with injectable fillers.

CONSIDERING INJECTABLE FILLERS

While not as involved as surgical cosmetic procedures, soft tissue augmentation is a medical procedure.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR INJECTABLE FILLERS?

You are a good candidate for injectable fillers if you would like to restore facial contours, or reduce the appearance of lines and creases, injection therapy with soft tissue fillers may by right for you. Injectable fillers can:

  • Plump up the lips
  • Enhance shallow contours
  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars

The results of soft tissue augmentation using injectable fillers are apparent immediately. Your initial appearance after treatment with any filler may include:

  • Mild swelling or bruising
  • Temporary numbness or redness
  • An “over-filled” appearance to treated areas

These conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days.

The results of soft tissue augmentation with injectable fillers are not permanent. The continued aging of your face and variables in the absorption of fillers will affect how long your results last.

Should you choose not to repeat treatment, your appearance will return to its original condition. Plumped lips will loose volume and improved wrinkles, creases and scars will visibly recess and fully reappear in time.
