Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component already found in our skin that depletes as we age. HA keeps the skin plump and hydrated by replacing soft-tissue volume loss. The good news is that dermal filler injections can replenish HA and restore volume and fullness to areas of the face. At Dixi’s MediSpa, we only use FDA-approved dermal fillers to provide volume and hydrate your lips.
Benefits of dermal fillers include:
Dermal Fillers also raise scar depressions to improve their appearance. Results are temporary,
lasting approximately six to twelve months or longer before the body slowly breaks down the filler.
You’ll enjoy immediate results without any downtime!
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based products. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule found naturally that plumps and hydrates the skin. Dermal fillers smooth wrinkles, add volume and hydration to the lips, replace volume loss on the cheeks, under-eye area, and temples, and create symmetry in the chin and jawline.
Are Dermal Filler injections painful?
You may receive a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injection for added comfort. Many patients report slight discomfort while receiving injections, similar to a pinch or prick.
When will I see the results?
Results will appear immediately. Your provider will lend you a mirror to see your injection’s results before you leave. Swelling is almost immediate, so final results are generally revealed one to two weeks post-appointment after swelling has subsided.
How long will the results last?
Dermal fillers may last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. The duration depends on the area treated and the product used. Follow-up appointments will be required to maintain your look.
Will there be downtime after dermal fillers?
Swelling and mild bruising are likely to occur and may last a week, depending on your body’s response to treatment and the number of injection sites. Avoid exercise 24 hours after your injections. However, you can resume all other activities!
