Do you notice the signs of aging on your face when you look in the mirror each morning? Many people wish they could do something about the texture or tone of their skin as they get older.
One solution that may offer some relief from signs of aging is dermal fillers. 4Ever Young Anti Aging Solutions is proud to offer an extensive selection of fillers.
When you are ready to feel more radiant and youthful, consider dermal fillers. Here is everything you need to know about the process.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Patients often come to our anti-agents with concerns about the quality of their skin, fine lines, and a lack of volume in the face. Dermal fillers are a long-lasting and minimally invasive option that allows our patients to refresh their appearance while avoiding surgical interventions.
Our team of experts will help you determine whether Juvederm or Restylane fillers are the right fit for you.
These products are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring sugar in the body. This key ingredient is responsible for the plumping effect seen with these injections. The fillers will temporarily fill hollow spots of the face or fill in areas affected by moderate to severe wrinkles.
This treatment can be used in many parts of the body, including:
- Tear troughs
- Lines stretching from the mouth to the chin (marionette lines)
- Lines stretching from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Back of the hands
Each type of dermal filler will have a unique formula best suited to treating certain aspects of aging. A free consultation will allow our experienced anti-agents to evaluate your face, define your goals, and guide your decision-making process.
While both Juvederm and Restylane are made from hyaluronic acid, they have unique formulas that can make it easier to choose between them. Your anti-agent will guide you in this process. In general, Juvederm helps to hold moisture into the skin and cushions areas of the face that may be lacking in volume.
Juvederm is often used for:
- Wrinkle reduction
- Lip plumping
- Cheek volume
One of the key reasons Juvederm is so effective is that it stimulates the natural production of collagen in the treatment areas. Because of this, these treatments tend to have long-lasting results, with some of the Juvederm products lasting for over one full year.
Much like Juvederm, Restylane is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to help support healthy collagen production in the body over an extended period. This brand also comes in several unique formulas, including:
- Restylane Silk
- Restylane Defyne
- Restylane Refyne
- Restylane Lyft
Sessions for Restylane tend to be fairly short, lasting just 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your treatment goals and the formula selected. The results are usually visible following treatment, and most will last approximately four to six months. Some will last for a year or longer.
Make sure to ask your anti-agent what you can expect from the results of your fillers during a consultation.
How Long Will Results Last?
Patients are often happy to hear that the results from their treatment will be visible immediately. You can start to notice the difference in the volume of your skin right away, but the optimal time frame is usually about two weeks.
With results showing up so quickly, how long can you expect them to last?
Results will vary depending on what specific dermal fillers you use in your treatment plan. For the most part, they tend to last about four to six months at a minimum. Some fillers will last for much longer, up to 12 months. At this point, you may need another round of filler to maintain the initial results.
Aftercare Instructions for Dermal Fillers
For those considering dermal fillers but wondering how to fit them into their busy lives, the good news is that there is minimal downtime required with any of our hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
The appointment takes less than an hour in most cases, allowing you to get in and out of the office efficiently.
You may even be able to return to work directly after your session. You can schedule your appointment during a long lunch break or call it an early day and head home.
You should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours following treatment. Stay away from situations where you may be exposed to lots of sunlight or extreme heat. Other than this, you can usually resume most normal activities such as desk work or relaxing on the couch with a good book.
Your anti-agent will give you all of the instructions for your aftercare that you need. Make sure to follow these instructions carefully to get the maximum benefit from your injectables.
