What are Dermal Fillers?

The face can lack volume for a number of reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. Dermal fillers work by injecting a gel-like liquid beneath the skin to fill in the areas that appear sunken or hollow. Injectable fillers are a great nonsurgical alternative for Prescott, AZ individuals desiring to smooth fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance without needing cosmetic surgery. There are many different types of fillers that can help meet your unique goals. To determine which injectable fillers are recommended for you, we invite you to visit Salud Spa where Dr. Robert Seals and nurse practitioner Chrissie Seals can share more details.

Am I A Candidate For Dermal Fillers?

The ideal candidates for dermal fillers would be anyone looking to decrease the presence of wrinkles and fine lines without having a surgical facelift. In most situations, individuals who have recently lost significant amounts of weight have spots on their faces that are sunken and shapeless. These attributes make them great contenders for injectable fillers. They are also a great option for those who are not comfortable with the scars that can occur following a surgical facelift.

Our Injection Technique

Dermal fillers are done as an in-office procedure within about 15 – 30 minutes. Before your procedure, we will consult with you to learn more about your desired results and determine which product may best deliver them. To perform the treatment, your injector will use topical numbing cream as a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The appropriate amount of filler will be gradually and evenly injected through a small needle. Depending on the desired outcome, either half or an entire syringe could be used. You can expect swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms should fade away within a few days. Typical results can last from three months to a full year based on the type of filler used and the area of injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.

Are dermal filler injections painful?
Most patients don’t consider dermal filler injections painful, though some may find them a bit uncomfortable. Some may be a little uneasy at the idea of having an injection, but the needles used for dermal fillers are very small, even smaller than the needles for a flu vaccination. After the injections, some patients may experience a little bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection site, but this usually dissipates after a few hours to about two days.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Dermal fillers are generally accepted across the medical community as safe, especially when the procedure is performed by experienced professionals like Dr. Seals and nurse practitioner Chrissie Seals and their professional staff. One recent study of hyaluronic acid fillers found them to be safe and effective as an aesthetic treatment.

While the results of dermal fillers are unique to each patient, you can typically expect to need a maintenance treatment every 6 – 9 months.
