While the signs of aging can be addressed with surgical intervention, many patients are unhappy with the idea of an invasive facelift. There are many risks associated with surgery, it can be cost prohibitive, and it comes with the need for extensive downtime and recovery. Instead, many patients consider the benefits of injectable dermal fillers through their dermatologist’s office.
At Seriously Skin, we offer several injectable anti-aging treatments, including neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and collagen stimulators. Many patients will benefit from dermal fillers. Our practice offers several popular brands of dermal fillers, including:
Dermal fillers work by using hyaluronic acid to volumize fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This smoothes the skin and texture of the face, providing a more youthful appearance. The results are immediate and can last up to a year. Patients can also visit Seriously Skin for touch-up injections to maintain the results and slow the overall effect of aging.
Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with other injectables, including neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport) and collagen stimulators (Sculptra and Radiesse). Combining injectables can provide a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the skin and offer patients a wonderful alternative to surgical treatments.
Dermal fillers are affordable, easy, and long lasting. Patients who have considered the advantages of dermal fillers and other injectables can visit the team at Seriously Skin in Cleveland, Ohio to determine their candidacy for treatment. Patients who have consulted with their dermatologist and decided on an injectable can enjoy the results in as little as 15 minutes during outpatient treatment.
There are few risks associated with dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid. Patients with rashes, infections, or hives should avoid injections until these concerns have healed, and patients should be in good overall health. Those who have severe allergic reactions to lidocaine or bacterial proteins should discuss this with the provider, as they may not be candidates for this treatment. Most patients will experience redness and tenderness of the injection area immediately after their treatment, but this will subside over a day or two. Any other concerns should be discussed with a medical professional if they arise.
