Dermal fillers are an excellent non-surgical alternative to the process of facial aging. Visible signs of aging can often be traced to a loss of volume and fillers work to replace the volume of the lips and facial skin that have been lost over time. Injectable fillers also smooth and enhance shallow contours, diminish wrinkles, plump lips, and soften creases to provide a more youthful appearance.
The long-term effects of dermal fillers depend on the product used, the area of treatment, and the patient. Your OMSNashville surgeon may recommend repeat treatment to ensure optimal results. The types of dermal fillers differ in chemical makeup, longevity, and have varying degrees of softness.
Who is a Candidate for Fillers
Dermal filler treatments are a safe and ideal treatment for almost any healthy adult. It is especially recommended for patients wishing to treat; creases, folds, or lines on the face, deep vertical creases extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth, thin or undefined lips, loss of volume in the cheeks or face.
What to Expect
Your OMSNashville surgeon will evaluate your area of concern, review your medical history, and discuss the type of filler needed for your particular areas of concern. During treatment, the area will be cleaned, and you may receive a topical or local anesthetic to numb the injection site and minimize discomfort. The filler will be injected strategically beneath the skin to address your treatment goals.
After receiving filler injections, patients may notice results immediately after the treatment depending on the product and areas treated. You may experience mild bruising and swelling that should subside over the days following treatment. Your surgeon may recommend refraining from exercise or strenuous activity for 24 hours after treatment.
