Restoring Facial Volume with Fillers

Posted on February 8th, 2020

If your face has lost its youthful appearance and you’re considering plastic surgery, you may want to consider a less-invasive method like Dermal Fillers. Dermal fillers are often referred to as a “liquid facelift” and are becoming increasingly popular due to their amazing results.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gels that are injected into your skin to help remove wrinkles, deep creases and lost skin volume. The gel is typically comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is produced by your body naturally. The hyaluronic acid is what encourages water molecules to bind in your skin to give it a youthful look. Getting a dermal filler treatment is a good alternative to a facelift for many of our patients. MDSkin Lounge offers a variety of hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler options with various formulas suited to different areas of the face or purposes for the treatment. These include options such as Restylane or Juvederm.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

When your skin loses too much of its hyaluronic acid, it can look wrinkled and worn out. Much of the appearance of a youthful face has to do with plump skin, and injections of hyaluronic acid-based filler will achieve that for you. The dermal injections can be used to fill in your cheeks, under your eyes, around your mouth and your jawline. If your lips have lost their perky and plumped up look, then dermal fillers can help restore volume there as well.

What Happens When I Go In For A Treatment?

When you come into the MDSkin Lounge, you can count on receiving caring service from our professionals. We’ll consult with you about the areas you’d like us to treat, and prepare your skin for the injections. You may have several areas that you’d like us to inject for beautiful results. When we inject the dermal fillers, you may feel slight discomfort but the pain associated with the procedure is minimal. 

When Will I See The Results?

You’ll see the full effect of the dermal fillers about 7 to 10 days after your treatment. You will see your results right away, but your face may look slightly puffy immediately after the treatment. That will dissipate within just a few days.

Are There Side Effects Of A Dermal Injection?

While this is a non-surgical procedure, there are some side effects to be aware of. You may have bruising or redness around the injection area, and your face may be tender to the touch. In some rare cases, clients may have an allergic reaction that causes itchy skin.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Depending on your skin type, your dermal filler could last between 6-12 months. The benefit of this treatment is you can schedule touch-ups whenever you need them. The procedure takes about an hour, making it easy to add to your calendar.
