Where can you use dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic Acid fillers can be used to restore/add volume to the following areas:
How long does this treatment take?
Depending on the area, it usually takes about an hour.
How soon will I see results?
The hyaluronic acid filler increases volume in the treatment area immediately. You may have some swelling and bruising in the area after your treatment. You will be able to admire the final results 2 weeks after your initial appointment.
How long do the results of treatment last?
Results usually last 1-2 years depending on the area. There are many factors that affect longevity of the treatment. Filler in the lips is the shortest-lived, since there is so much blood flow in this area. Treatment of the cheeks lasts longest because the filler is placed deep next to the bone where there is little blood flow.
Also, there are steps you can take to increase the longevity of your results. You may not need a follow-up treatment for nine months to a year after your initial treatment session. For instance, not smoking will significantly increase the longevity of your results. Smoking weakens existing collagen and slows the formation of new collagen.
What else can i do to extend the longevity of my results?
To help your results last for as long as possible, you should be living a healthy lifestyle. You also need to avoid lifestyle choices that will slow the growth of new collagen. Unfortunately, there are many things that damage collagen, including alcohol, dehydration, and sun exposure.
If you want your results to last closer to 2 years, you need to wear sunscreen daily. For the best results, make sure the sunscreen you choose has a high SPF, protects against UVC rays, and is resistant to water. You should also drink at least half a gallon of water daily to stay hydrated.
