One of the most sought-after anti-aging treatments is BOTOX®. But neurotoxins don’t resolve all the signs of aging. Sometimes you need to increase the volume in certain regions of your face. Or perhaps you need to recontour specific facial areas. That’s exactly what dermal fillers can do. We’re proud to offer dermal fillers at Get Refreshed in Bay Harbor Islands, FL. You can learn more about your options by contacting us today and scheduling a consultation!
How Dermal Fillers Work
Modern dermal fillers work by injecting hyaluronic acid into a region with volume loss. Most clients experience such volume loss in their hands, cheeks, and lips. However, dermal fillers may also be used to contour the jawline, treat dimples, cellulite, and acne scars, enhance the appearance of the nose, and erase fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Dermal fillers accomplish all these things by restoring volume to a particular area. First, hyaluronic acid provides the volume. At the same time, it encourages your body to produce more collagen and elastin: proteins and fibers that are crucial for young, healthy-looking skin. As your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, it simultaneously replaces it with healthy, strong collagen.
How Long Treatment Takes
How long your dermal filler treatment takes depends on several factors, including the number of areas you are trying to treat, how large those areas are, and the extent of the correction you need. During your initial consultation, we will review your needs to gauge how long it should take you to receive treatment.
How Long Results Last
It’s important to note that results vary from patient to patient. The longevity of results depends on several factors, including how quickly your body metabolizes the injected compounds, your health and lifestyle choices, and the formulation that was injected. The results are temporary, and treatments can be repeated as needed for ongoing benefits.
During your initial consultation at our office in Bay Harbor Islands, FL, we can review your medical history, current health, current facial structure, and aesthetic goals to determine if dermal fillers are the appropriate anti-aging treatment option for you. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally within the skin, you won’t need to take an allergy test to confirm it is safe for you. However, we may discover that you need to combine this anti-aging technique with another, such as a neurotoxin.
