Facial volume loss is something everyone will have to deal with at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent this process entirely, but it can be effectively stalled using dermal fillers. Our fillers (which include the Restylane® and JUVÉDERM lines) are formulated to address volume loss due to a decline in collagen production over time. Fillers take minutes to administer and offer results that can last for as long as two years. Book an appointment in Dodge City, Kansas, to learn more today.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments primarily used to add volume to specific areas of your face. Most fillers, like JUVÉDERM®, are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). The body produces this natural substance, which can add significant volume to facial areas when injected. Other filler types include Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), Poly-L-lactic Acid, and more. Your best choice will depend on your needs, which we can explore during your consultation.
What Do Dermal Fillers Do?
Dermal fillers improve skin plumpness in areas where volume loss is common. This supplementation has the added benefit of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. These treatments are also a great choice for improving lip plumpness if you’re unhappy with the size of your lips.
What to Expect
These treatments typically take 60 minutes to administer and are formulated to improve shallow areas of the face. We pre-apply a local anesthetic cream, and most fillers also contain a local anesthetic. By plumping the skin, fillers can also minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Several injections will be made at specific sites according to your needs during a session. After the treatment, you can return to the rest of your day, avoiding aerobics until the next day.
Dermal filler results from these treatments can be seen almost immediately and may last up to 1-2 years. These results may vary depending on the specific issue treated and the chosen filler used. Some side effects can be experienced, so it’s important to discuss post-treatment guidelines during your initial consultation.
