The aging process causes various changes in your facial appearance, some of which can be unexpected. Along with wrinkles and fine lines, you might notice the unwelcome loss of facial volume, especially on the lower half of your face.
Fortunately, dermal fillers can help you reclaim that youthful fullness in your face. Discover from our practitioners at Dermatology Associates of Central New Jersey in Old Bridge, Freehold, and Union, New Jersey, how dermal fillers can plump up your skin and give you a rejuvenated, fresh-faced appearance.
Understanding dermal fillers
With every decade of aging, your face loses an increasing amount of volume. Your skin also loses its youthful elasticity, causing your face to sag and increasing the appearance of some wrinkles.
Dermal filler injections reverse much of this part of the aging process, giving your face a fresh and revitalized look. Results you can get from dermal fillers include:
- Restoring volume to your cheeks and lower face
- Smoothing and reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and creases around your mouth and nose
- Adding volume to your lips
- Diminishing the appearance of some scarring
- Reduced under eye hollowing
To ensure you get the full results you desire, your Dermatology Associates of Central New Jersey practitioner can develop a plan that combines dermal fillers with other treatments. For example, you can get Botox® injections concurrently with dermal fillers to also target crow’s feet and other fine lines.
How dermal fillers work
Depending on the results you desire, our team uses four different types of dermal fillers individually or in combination. These options are Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, Juvéderm Volbella™ XC, and Juvéderm Vollure™ XC.
All four fillers use hyaluronic acid, which helps keep your skin hydrated. The aesthetic results from hyaluronic acid are extremely natural, as hyaluronic acid also already exists naturally in your skin.
What happens at your dermal fillers appointment
Getting dermal fillers is a remarkably simple and quick process. At your initial appointment, your Dermatology Associates of Central New Jersey practitioner meets with you to discuss your goals for the treatment and ensure you’re a good candidate to receive dermal fillers.
Your practitioner determines the best type(s) of fillers to meet your needs and devises a treatment plan. After your consultation, we will set up an appointment for another day to get your first round of dermal fillers.
It only takes a few minutes for your Dermatology Associates of Central New Jersey practitioner to inject fillers into your face for your desired results. After getting fillers, there’s no downtime needed for recovery, so you can go right back to your typical routine when you leave our office.
Your practitioner advises you on how long your results are expected to last based on the fillers you receive. Generally, you can plan on your dermal fillers being effective for at least several months, or in some cases, for over a year.
Once your current dermal filler stops being effective, you can receive another one by scheduling a quick visit to Dermatology Associates of Central New Jersey’s cozy office.
