As we age, our faces lose fat, bringing our facial muscles closer to the skin’s surface. This can make various signs of aging, such as smile lines and crow’s feet, more obvious. Injectable dermal fillers can plump up thin lips, soften lines, smooth wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars.
As long as you are physically healthy, dermal fillers could be a viable option for you.
Dr. Kota and his team will evaluate and pinpoint the appropriate points on your face in which to inject filler. These injection sites will be cleaned with an antibacterial agent, and then anesthetized. After that, each injection takes only a few moments. Depending upon the number of areas in which dermal filler is to be injected, the process can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as an hour.
You can resume most activities right away, though you may notice mild swelling or bruising, and temporary numbness or redness. The area that was treated may also seem “overfilled.” These conditions are temporary and can be alleviated with a topical cream. They should disappear completely within a few days.
At Premier Physicians, Dr. Kota and his team use different types of dermal fillers for different parts of the face. This is because different fillers have different chemical make-ups and varying degrees of softness.
If you’re interested in the possibility of using dermal fillers, call Dr. Kota to schedule a consultation.
