Best Candidates for Injectable Fillers
Almost anyone who is in good overall health can be a candidate for dermal fillers. Many people seek out dermal fillers to fill in deep creases or facial wrinkles, particularly in the low face, such as the nasolabial folds, which run from the sides of the nose to corners of the mouth, or marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth to either side of the chin. Others may get dermal fillers to plump up their lips or smooth out lip wrinkles. Finally, fillers can also be used to add facial volume to remove hollowness or increase facial symmetry.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Harrington might recommend other treatments to help you meet your needs. For instance, BOTOX® or Dysport® can smooth away dynamic wrinkles in the upper face, especially crow’s feet and frown lines. Profound® RF skin tightening can help take years off an aging face and decrease wrinkles. Finally, Sciton laser treatments provide a range of options for rejuvenating your complexion.
Real Patient Results
What to Expect
Before your injections, you will have a chance to learn about our different filler options and which product or products might be best for you. When it’s time for your appointment, your aesthetic professional will cleanse your skin and decide on the exact areas to inject. The injections themselves are generally quick and relatively painless, and no anesthetic is necessary. Dermal fillers are quick, walk-in, walk-out procedures, allowing you to return to your normal routine in as little as 20 minutes.
Recovery & Results
Once your treatment is finished, you may develop some minor pinkness, swelling or bruising around the injection site. The exact length and extent of side effects vary depending on the type of filler, which area you had injected and how your body responds, but most side effects fade within 1 to 2 weeks. Some people may experience few to no side effects. You should avoid pressing on or massaging the treated area, but you can otherwise return to your normal schedule as soon as you leave our office.
Your results should gradually develop over the following 5 to 10 days. If you had wrinkle fillers placed to smooth out deep creases, lines should appear less noticeable and minimized. In the case of lip fillers, your lips should appear fuller and smoother, but not artificial or exaggerated. In all cases, your results should appear natural and simply help you look and feel like your best self.
