With age, the skin begins to lose its volume and elasticity, which causes it to sag. There is no denying the fact that some of us want to look as young as we feel. Dermal Fillers Toronto can help to restore the lost volume and create contours on your face. The fillers are done non-surgically and provide you with temporary results. Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure. If you don’t know much about it and consider it, then don’t worry, we have got your back.
What is done during the treatment?
Most of the injectable filler treatments are usually wrapped in about 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the client’s needs. Before getting the filler, it is recommended that you avoid any anti-inflammatory drug, Aspirin, Vitamin E, ginseng, or any blood-thinning medication for about a week to bring down the chances of any possible bruising. A topical freezing element is used to make the procedure more comfortable and simple. Most of the available dermal fillers include lidocaine, a numbing agent that makes the procedure more comfortable.
What does the recovery period look like?
After you have been injected with the filler, you might experience some swelling and minimal bruising. The swelling begins to peak within the first 24 hours. You might experience mild swelling for about 7 to 10 days. Both minimal swelling and bruising are normal, and they will resolve very soon. However, you can resume normal activity, including your regular exercising after the treatment. It is highly recommended that you week two weeks before or after the injectable filler treatment.
Where can the filler be used?
Dermal fillers are pretty dynamic. They can be used to contour and provide a seamless appearance on your face. They are used for lip augmentation and a non-surgical nose job to help create a beautiful profile. When injected in the cheeks, they create the illusion of contoured cheekbones by restoring the lost volume. Dermal fillers are also used to treat fine lines, and wrinkles present around the mouth and hollowed temples. They can be used in the chin area to give more volume, the jawline, and also under the eyes to make you look more fresh and young.
How long do the results last?
The results of the dermal fillers are temporary, and they can last from 6 months to up to 18 months, depending on where it was injected. For lip augmentation, the filler lasts for about six months. The mouth is constantly used for various purposes, so the hyaluronic acid is metabolized faster. Dermal fillers, injected in other areas of the face that don’t move so often, would be more long-lasting. As the fillers contain hyaluronic acid, it gets easily absorbed by the body. However, suppose you are not happy with the final results of the filler. In that case, a product called hyaluronidase can be used to melt the filler quickly and return you to your pre-injection appearance in about an hour.
