Over 55 million people are expected to travel over 50 miles during the holidays to spend time with family and friends. When you’re going to see the faces of loved ones you haven’t been with in a while, you want them to see you at your best. And if that means getting rid of unwanted wrinkles and creases, then you should consider dermal fillers before you start your journey.
Dr. Peymon Zarreii of Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics is an expert in dermal fillers. His skill and expertise offer you the best solution no matter what your individual needs.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers is the common term for injectable substances like hyaluronic acid and hydroxyapatite, which are injected into wrinkles, creases, and other areas to smooth, soften, and contour them for a younger appearance without surgery. Common versions of dermal fillers include:
- Boletero balanceⓇ: used for lines from the sides of the nose to the sides of your mouth
- JuvédermⓇ: used for filling lips, cheeks, wrinkles, and folds
- RestylaneⓇ: used to hydrate, fill, and make the skin of the hands and face more elastic
- RadiesseⓇ: used to plump skin and promote collagen production
Your initial examination will determine which will be used for your individual treatment.
What is the procedure like?
Dermal filling is minimally invasive and is done on an outpatient basis. After your initial evaluation, your face is mapped to target the areas of injection. The mapped areas are cleaned, and an anesthetic ointment is applied. Once fully prepped, the areas are massaged and injected, which takes only moments per shot. The entire process usually takes 15 minutes, but it varies depending on the amount of work you’re having done per session.
What Can I Expect After it’s Done?
You can expect to feel a bit of tenderness for up to 48 hours after the procedure; apply ice to help relieve any swelling and discomfort. You can resume your normal routine immediately after treatment, but avoid intense physical activity for at least two days. Most immediate side effects (swelling, redness, hard areas at the injection sites, and hypersensitivity) can be alleviated by massage and topical icing.
You will see immediate results, and they can last for many months or possibly years, depending on the filler used. Good general health and maintaining healthy skin will help improve and extend your results.
