What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume under your skin to enhance your natural features. As you get older, the subcutaneous fat that keeps your skin smooth and plump diminishes. Without the support of this fat, your skin sags, creases, and wrinkles.
At La Mer Medical Spa & Yoga, the team uses the Juvéderm® line of dermal fillers for different areas of the face and body. For the face, dermal fillers smooth out lines and creases, add volume to thin lips, and enhance natural contours.
For the body, the team uses dermal fillers to improve the appearance of the labia minora in women and to perform breast lifts. They also combine dermal fillers with the OroTox facial treatment to rejuvenate your skin.
What happens during dermal filler injections?
The team at La Mer Medical Spa & Yoga are experienced aesthetic experts. Before your session, the team spends time discussing your beauty goals and reviewing your medical history. They also carefully evaluate your skin so they can develop the most effective treatment plan.
Once they’ve developed your treatment plan, the team reviews it with you, so you know what to expect. Prior to your dermal filler injections, your aesthetic specialist may use a topical numbing agent to reduce any discomfort during treatment. Your treatment time may vary depending on the area of your face receiving the dermal injections, but it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.
You should see an immediate improvement in your appearance following your dermal filler injections.
Is there downtime following treatment with dermal fillers?
For most people, there is no need for downtime after dermal filler injections. However, your provider may suggest some activity modification depending on the area of your face or body that received the injections. Your provider may also advise you to wait at least a day before resuming your exercise routine.
How long will the results of my dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers temporarily enhance your beauty, and repeat injections are needed to maintain results. However, the amount of time between your injections depends on the type of filler you received. Some dermal fillers keep your skin smooth, plump, and youthful for four months and others for as long as 12 months.
