Our patients in Winter Park who are getting older find that they are dealing with many of the same skin complaints as many other people their age. The effects of the environment and damaging pollutants can prematurely age your skin, making you appear older than your actual age. Skin problems like fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, and scars can be corrected using modern dermatological treatment techniques, many of which do not involve the need for surgical procedures.
Many patients would prefer to have their skin treated to correct problems like lines, wrinkles, and scars and often prefer treatment methods that do not involve surgery that can be too risky, expensive, and require significant down times. Since minimally invasive treatment techniques do not involve the need for incisions, you should have significantly shorter healing and recovery times, allowing you to resume your normal daily activities more quickly.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are simply injectable substances that are in the form of a gel that is injected into your skin to increase facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. They offer many of the same benefits as surgical techniques, and most patients experience no downtime at all.
Dermal fillers also have the advantage of offering results that appear quite soft and natural in comparison to surgical techniques. Since we are only replacing substances produced by your own body that have become depleted, you will simply look like a younger version of yourself.
What materials are used in dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic acid is perhaps the most popular dermal filler ingredient. This important substance becomes depleted as you age, leading to skin that becomes thinner and dryer. By restoring your proper levels of hyaluronic acid, we are encouraging your skin to thicken and minimize the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
Do dermal fillers cause side effects?
Some patients experience minor redness, swelling, and discomfort at the injection sites. These minor effects are temporary and should fade within hours to a day or two at the most.
How long can I expect my results to last?
The answer depends upon the exact product that was injected into your skin. Typically, dermal fillers offer results lasting from six months to a year or more, depending upon the product. At this time, you will need a repeat treatment in order to maintain your results.
