Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injection that adjusts your facial contours by adding artificial volume to certain areas.
The skilled injections team at Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc. uses high-grade dermal fillers and careful techniques to refine the shape of your face without causing an unnatural or unconventional change to your appearance.
All dermal fillers contain a gel-like substance that holds its shape after it’s injected into your tissues. Some brands contain a smooth gel, while others contain microspheres that act as a scaffold for new collagen growth. The latter type usually has longer-lasting results and the former fades away as the gel dissolves with time.
Many people choose to get dermal fillers because the natural aging process causes a gradual loss of subdermal fat within your skin. This fat loss process can lead to a sunken, bony, or droopy appearance.
The most common area to receive dermal fillers is your face. You can use them to treat certain features or contour irregularities that either changed with age or are present naturally.
A few specific targetable features are:
When it comes to facial wrinkles, dermal fillers work best for larger ones. If your primary concern is smaller fine lines like crow’s feet or frown lines, the team at Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc. might recommend neuromodulators instead. You can get either or both types of injectables to minimize age-related concerns.
The amount of time your dermal filler lasts depends entirely on the type of dermal filler you use. During your initial consultation at Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc., the team reviews your options and helps you select the filler best suited to reach your goals.
Many of today’s fillers last for one year or longer depending on the type and the area you choose to treat. Your tissues safely and naturally absorb the filler over time, so there’s no need for a second procedure to remove them.
If you enjoyed the results from your initial round of dermal filler injections, you can schedule additional follow-up injections at Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc. once the results begin to fade in order to maintain them.
