Benefits of Using Dermal Fillers

As you get older, it’s no surprise that you begin to show signs of aging on your face. This may come in the form of wrinkles or crow’s feet, which often make you self-conscious and wishing for a more youthful look. Luckily, there are plenty of cosmetic fixes for these problems, one of which is known as dermal fillers.

At IVY Infusions, our team helps you achieve the youthful glow that you’ve been hoping for through a number of different treatments. Our team is led by Sasha Beatty, who is our nurse practitioner and specializes in cosmetic procedures.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are one of the ways you can achieve a more youthful look without having to undergo invasive plastic surgery. Many different types of dermal fillers are available, each of which works to re-contour your face to its younger self.

If you’re suffering from signs of aging on your face, dermal fillers can help. These fillers are injectable substances that are the consistency of a gel. Injected underneath your skin, they help with a number of different cosmetic concerns, including:

Dermal fillers are also used to smooth the lines that run from your nose to the corner of each side of your mouth. In fact, they are also able to be used on your hands. It helps to rejuvenate and fill out your skin, to achieve a much more youthful look.

What are they composed of?

Dermal fillers are made from a number of different substances, some of which are natural, and others that are synthetic. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most well-known substances that’s used for dermal fillers.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that’s found naturally in your skin. It not only helps to keep your skin perfectly hydrated, but also gives it a natural fullness. These types of fillers can continue to work for six months or more and are naturally absorbed back into your skin.

There are many other different types of fillers, each of which has its own specific makeup, density, and texture. It’s important that you talk to Ms. Beatty before deciding on one on your own.

Ms. Beatty helps you determine what parts of your face you’d like to work on so that she can pick the right dermal filler for you. Although there’s always a chance one will work better than another, she has the expertise to help you get the perfect fit for your specific needs.

How can dermal fillers benefit you?

Dermal fillers are a great way for you to achieve the results of plastic surgery — without the risks and pain that goes with it. There are plenty of benefits to this treatment over others, some of which include:

They’re long-lasting

Dermal fillers can last anywhere from six months to years, depending on the type that’s used and the areas you’re getting treated. If you’re having it done for the first time, you may want to go with a filler with a shorter duration, so you’re sure that you like the way you look.

The results are almost immediate

The dermal fillers make an immediate improvement in your appearance. Once they’re injected, they go to work smoothing out your skin and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll be able to see the results before you leave the office, but the best results are visible a day or two later.

There’s little risk involved

There are rarely serious side effects involved with dermal fillers. You may have some redness or swelling in the area you had treated, but that often resolves in a day or two. Whereas plastic surgery poses life-threatening risks, dermal fillers are relatively safe with few side effects.

You don’t need time to recover

This type of cosmetic treatment is minimally invasive — meaning no incisions or scars after the procedure. It’s also relatively quick, and you can get it done and go straight back to what you were doing. Depending on the number of areas you’re having treated, the appointment could be done in as little as 10-15 minutes.
