When the signs of aging finally catch up with you, it’s comforting to know that you aren’t alone in the fight. Wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin and sunken cheeks affect almost everyone at some point in their lives. It’s this exact reason why dermal fillers were created. Dermal fillers help reverse the signs of aging by changing what it is that makes us look old in the first place.
Whether you’re trying to get rid of crow’s feet around your eyes, help fix a soured look in between your eyes, or simply want smoother, tighter skin, call the Estetika offices in Delafield, WI or Sarasota, FL for the best in dermal fillers.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are quick and easy injections which help restore your face and fight against the signs of aging by replacing, or supplementing, your body’s natural healing process. This is done by either replacing the ingredients that give your skin its youthful glow or by boosting the skin’s ability to bounce back from emotions.
Dermal fillers may all have the same goal in mind, but each filler does its job in a unique way. Knowing what each dermal filler does, and how it does it, helps you make a decision on which product is best for you.
Estetika offers some of the leading dermal fillers in the world to our patients. The products we offer are:
- BOTOX®: Widely recognized as one of the go-to methods to fight the signs of aging, BOTOX® uses a unique formula to affect the muscles in the face, and helps keep you smooth and wrinkle free. One of the reasons people get a permanent sour look on their face is because years of emoting have left our skin loose and can no longer bounce back like it used to. By relaxing the muscles in the face, BOTOX® allows your face to return to a neutral expression no matter how much you emote.
- Juvederm®: When your skin loses hyaluronic acid, it loses the main ingredient which causes your face and lips to be plump and youthful. You can replace this lost HA with the use of Juvederm® around your lips and mouth. Juvederm® fills out your skin, eliminates wrinkles, and fills in your face’s deep lines in a safe, natural way.
- Voluma®: From the makers of Juvederm® comes Voluma, the only FDA-approved way to plump and lift the cheeks. Made from the same HA-rich formula as Juvederm®, Volbella® restores the HA you naturally lose to aging and immediately gives your cheeks a smooth, natural look.
- Volbella®: The newest injectable from Juvederm, Volbella gives thinning lips the perfect plump and also helps smooth fine lines around the mouth to help bring radiance back to your smile.
Each of these products can be used by themselves or combined to restore the youth in your face completely.
What is the Process Like?
The process begins with your initial consultation. During this meeting, we will go over each dermal filler option with you and discuss how it can help fulfill your beauty goals. It’s during this time that we will map out the areas on your face receiving treatment.
Your actual appointment will consist of an office visit and not much more. Treatment time will vary depending on how many injections of each dermal filler you’re getting, but most appointments are completed within an hour’s time. Dermal fillers feature no downtime so that appointments can be made during a lunch break or in between errands.
Each injection contains traces of pain-killing Lidocaine. The inclusion of this anesthetic means that the only pain you feel is a mere pinprick. The most common side effects are tenderness and swelling around the injection sites, but each of these side effects is minimal and lasts only a short amount of time.
Once your appointment is over, we will go over the proper ways of taking care of your face post-treatment. It’s common to see positive results from only one treatment, but dermal fillers work best after multiple sessions. This is why we will also schedule follow-up appointments during this time as well.
Dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to fight the signs of aging and restore the look of your youth. Contact our Wisconsin or Florida offices for a consultation today!
