Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
As time progresses, so too does the aging process. Our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, which means facial muscles are working closer to the skin's surface. This aging process makes smile lines and crow's feet more visible, causing facial skin to stretch, adding to loss of facial volume. At ABC Aesthetics, time is simply a worry of the past.
How Do Dermal Filler Treatments work?
The injections add volume to thin or deflated areas of the face such as cheeks, lips, or under the eyes. The results of these injections produce a "plumbing effect" that softens wrinkles and creases, creating a smoother complexion. Dr. Cifelli's brands of choice, Belotero and Juvederm, are, excellent dermal fillers for individuals looking for a more "natural" option.
What to Expect During Dermal Filler Injections
The filler treatment usually lasts 10-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area, and is usually quite comfortable. Your face will first be cleansed, then a topical anesthetic may be used to numb the treatment area. The product is then carefully administered just below the surface of the skin by the doctor's strategic injection technique. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment without experiencing any downtime. Results may last about 9-12 months.
