Cosmetic Dermal Fillers in White Rock

Fillers are a type of cosmetic medicine used to add volume and/or alter the contours of the face. Fillers also help fill in wrinkles, and they’re popular because they yield immediate results with few risks or recovery time.

Fillers are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine that is used to add volume, change the contours of your face, and fill in wrinkles. Common places to inject fillers are on the face and neck area giving you a fuller, smoother skin appearance- more youthful too! Fillers use dermal injections which result as immediate results with few risks and little recovery time.

Step 1 – Facial assesment & mapping

If you choose to utilize packaged soft tissue fillers, the plastic surgeon, or his specially-trained nurse, will evaluate your facial appearance and skin tone and examine the areas of your face to be augmented. This is the first step of our process for injecting dermal fillers in White Rock.

Strategic points on your face may be marked as the appropriate injection sites for the filler. Photographs may be taken of the areas to be treated.

Step 2 – Cleansing & anesthetizing

The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent.

Pain at the injection site may be ameliorated by use of a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin or injection of local anesthesia.

While not painless, the injections are usually easily tolerated.

Step 3 – The injection

Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler added as needed.

Depending on the number of areas to be treated, your whole process for receiving dermal fillers in White Rock may be as short as 15 minutes, or as long as an hour.

Step 4 – Clean up & recovery

Once the results are deemed satisfactory, any markings will be cleansed off.

You may be offered an ice pack to reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort. Although the area may feel a bit tender for a day or two, it is usually not painful enough to require any medication.

Dermal Fillers

1. Some Dermal Fillers Are Natural

Collagen and hyaluronic acid occur naturally within the body. They are also naturally derived dermal fillers that are on the market today. Hyaluronic acid (HA) was approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration in 2003 as a dermal filler. Collagen fillers were approved by the FDA in 1981. The patient can also use their own natural filler, that is, fat taken from other areas of the body (typically, the flank and love handles). It is then injected into the areas that a patient needs to fill out or smooth.

2. Dermal Fillers Are Usually Temporary

Dermal fillers last anywhere from 5 to 18 months, depending on the brand of product and where it is injected. The body can safely break them down and absorb them, so they are ideal for patients who worry about not being satisfied with the outcome. Combining dermal fillers with Botox can help maximize the duration of the result.

3. Not Just For The Face

Dermal fillers have other uses. For example, there are types of fillers that can be injected into the hands to smooth wrinkles and hide veins, and other types that can even be used on droopy earlobes to fill them out so women can wear bigger and heavier earrings.
