Fillers Q & A
What are fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable materials that plump up wrinkles and hollows in your face to smooth out your skin and rejuvenate your appearance. Fillers can also help balance your facial features for a more pleasing symmetry.
Dermal fillers can effectively treat a wide range of facial problems, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Chin creases
- Thin lips
- Sagging jawline
- Hollow cheeks
- Under eye shadows
Your provider at A New You Health & Wellness -The Woodlands can also use facial fillers with Botox injections to further enhance your appearance. The team uses industry-leading Juvéderm facial fillers, a range of products that add volume to different areas of the face, helping to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, and plump up lips.
How do fillers work?
The active ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a clear, sticky liquid that helps to lubricate tissues around your body. It’s in your joints, for example, helping to prevent friction, and HA is present in the tissues that form the layers of your skin, helping to keep them hydrated.
Over time, the levels of HA in your body fall, and this becomes even more of an issue post-menopause. Without HA, your skin gets drier and more likely to wrinkle, while the loss of moisture in the underlying tissues creates hollowing.
Facial fillers like Juvéderm add new HA into the affected areas on your face, rehydrating the tissues. As a result, your wrinkles smooth out, and hollow areas plump back up again.
What happens during a dermal filler treatment?
The first stage of your dermal filler treatment is assessing your face to pinpoint where the fillers need to go. Your provider at A New You Health & Wellness -The Woodlands marks the places where they need to administer the injections before using a fine needle to inject the filler into your face.
You can have numbing cream on your skin first if you’re worried about pain or you don’t like needles, but the procedure causes very little discomfort. After the injections are complete, your provider expertly massages the Juvéderm into the tissues. This ensures an even distribution of filler and helps the finished result look as natural as possible.
Do fillers work straight away?
You can see the results of your Juvéderm treatment immediately, and the effects last for a long time – in some cases up to two years.
Each session only takes about 15 minutes, and discomfort afterward is minimal, typically just a little soreness for a day or two. That makes dermal fillers an outstandingly efficient way of treating the signs of aging, and a lot less painful, risky, and expensive than cosmetic surgery.
