Do you feel discouraged by seeing signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles when you look in the mirror? Would you like to look younger without undergoing expensive and invasive surgery? If so, injectable fillers may be a viable option for you.
At Adair Family Clinic & Medspa, we provide various types of injectable fillers to help you attain a more youthful, revitalized appearance. However, before making an appointment, it's crucial to understand what injectable fillers are, how they work, and what to expect during and after the procedure.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers, also known as dermal or facial fillers, are non-surgical cosmetic procedures that involve injecting a substance beneath the skin to eliminate wrinkles, add volume to hollow areas, and improve facial features. Many types of injectable fillers are available, each with distinct properties and benefits.
At Adair Family Clinic & Medspa, we offer various types of injectable fillers, including:
Juvederm: A filler made of hyaluronic acid that can smooth fine lines and wrinkles, enhance the cheeks and chin, and plump up lips.
Restylane: Another hyaluronic acid-based filler that can eliminate wrinkles, add volume to the face, and improve lip appearance.
Radiesse: A filler made of calcium hydroxylapatite that can fill deep wrinkles and folds and enhance the cheeks and hands.
Sculptra: A poly-L-lactic acid-based filler that encourages collagen production and can replenish facial volume over time.
How Do Injectable Fillers Work?
Injectable fillers work by filling the gaps beneath the skin where wrinkles and fine lines have appeared, adding volume to areas that have lost elasticity or firmness, and improving facial features such as the cheeks and lips. The longevity of the results depends on the type of filler used and how your body reacts to it, ranging from several months to several years.
What Can You Expect During and After the Procedure?
Injectable filler procedures are relatively fast and straightforward, taking under an hour to complete. Before the procedure, your injector will evaluate your skin and discuss your desired outcome with you to determine the best type of filler for your needs. They will then clean the injection site and use a fine needle to inject the filler into the targeted areas of your face.
Following the procedure, you may experience minor swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site, but these side effects should subside within a few days. It's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol for at least 24 hours after the procedure and to follow any other instructions given by your injector.
