The best candidates are people between 25-55 years with visible depressions, deep nasal, and labial folds, asymmetries, small and deep wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and nose. Another use for dermal fillers is for lip plumping. You are not a good candidate if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or bruise easily.
Dermal fillers require an exam, where we analyze and evaluated your skin condition and desired outcome. We will have to know a complete history of any allergies, previous surgeries and illness (if any), medications you are currently taking. Some medications and supplements are prohibited to use one week prior to injection of dermal fillers (Excedrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil, Vitamin E).
Dermal fillers are injected in micro-channels on your skin to fill in wrinkles and lines (or to plump your lips). Dermal fillers can be hyaluronic acid based such as Restylane and Juvederm; or calcium hydroxylapatite base such as Radiesse; and other less safe fillers such as silicone.
Juvederm and Restylane can last anywhere between 4 to 8 months. They start working right away after the procedure but desired result may be visible after 3-7 days since it may take up to a week to heal i.e. to soothe the swelling. Radiesse is long-lasting filler that may last up to 2 years. This product is very popular for many patients with deep wrinkles around the mouth and smile lines.
Complications are rare and they mostly stem from swelling and bruising that passes within a few days. Allergic reactions to the foreign body are very rare, as well as the creation of lumps.
Dermal fillers do not require special post-treatment. Use cold packs and topical ointments with swelling. It is important to avoid exercise and consumption of some medications and supplements first few days after the procedure.
Dr. Soni did a great job in explaining the procedure and making sure all my questions and concerns were answered. I had my first session on the first day and I was very impressed with how fast everything went and I also saw a difference in the tattoo once it began to heal. Every time I went in for a session the staff was very nice and I never had to wait a long time. Totally loved this place!
Extremely impressed with the physicians, lovely and welcoming staff...and the results!!! I have been coming here for 4 years, and highly recommend this entire team. They are meticulous in their approach, and both warm and professional. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!
Wow. Very impressed with the quality of work they do. So far I’ve been coming here for over 4 months and they are just phenomenal. I love coming here. Thanks ethos for your assistance with my tattoo removal.
