Are Dermal Fillers Right for Me?

In O'Fallon Illinois

Look as young as you feel. Sometimes eating healthy, exercise, and skincare routines just are not enough to provide the results you want. As time goes on our skin begins to show wear from our everyday lives. Stress and aging are major contributing factors as to why our skin does not always look its best. Many skincare products talk about diminishing wrinkles or reduce signs of aging, but fall short of the goal. Thanks to dermal fillers we are able to help give your face a younger and fuller look. Learn why over a million men and women annually choose dermal fillers to achieve the results you want.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable products used to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles, add contour, create volume, address under-eye circles, and revitalize their youthful appearance. In the early 2000s, the FDA approved the use of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, a soft, gel-like substance that is injected under the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in our body. As HA diminishes over time, lines and folds begin to appear. HA dermal fillers help correct this and diminish these wrinkles, restoring your appearance to a more rejuvenated and youthful look.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

The best benefit of dermal fillers is that the results are immediate, and there is often no downtime required. You are able to see changes the moment your treatment is finished. You will leave us feeling confident with your new youthful appearance. In most cases, your results from the injections will last up to 1 whole year. A touch-up appointment might need to be scheduled around 6 months after the first treatment but can be discussed more thoroughly during your initial consultation.

Which Dermal Filler is Right for Me?

With so many dermal filler products on the market, like Sculptra and Juvéderm, it can be difficult to know which option is best for you without an experienced cosmetic surgeon’s guidance. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth, which means that certain fillers work better for certain areas of concern. While your provider will determine what product is best for you, the following diagram illustrates in general where cosmetic surgeons tend to apply certain products

Who Are They For?

Dermal fillers are perfect for both women and men. Aging affects everyone differently and so the age at when someone starts receiving dermal fillers does vary. Dermal fillers still remain more popular with women but the percentage of men that choose to receive dermal fillers has risen sharply over the past 20 years. The procedure does differ for men and women of where and how much of an injection is administered.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

Yes, in the hands of a medical professional dermal fillers are safe. Safety is always the number one concern when it comes to any medical procedure. There are possible risks of swelling or bruising where the injection was administered, but these are only temporary and will resolve quickly. There is also the risk of lumps as the collagen builds underneath. At Pure 111, our dermal fillers are FDA approved and our well-trained medical staff help to minimize these possible side effects. All while providing a personal, professional, and safe experience.
