What are Injectable dermal Fillers?
Wrinkle fillers (usually called dermal fillers) can help replace lost facial volume. The face can lack volume for several reasons, including significant weight loss and age. This treatment works by injecting the dermal filler under the skin's surface to fill sunken or hollowed areas. For a more youthful appearance, injectable fillers are a great, nonsurgical option for the Chevy Chase, MD community. If you want to decrease wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, Dr. Gainers may recommend this treatment option. We can combine dermal fillers with wrinkle relaxers to provide a facelift's benefits without requiring surgery. At Madeliene Elaine, we offer a variety of fillers that can address aging concerns. To find out more about injectable fillers, we encourage you to visit Madeliene Elaine and speak with Dr. Madeliene Elaine Gainers.
Are Injectable Dermal Fillers For You?
The ideal candidates for injectable fillers are patients who want to decrease the appearance of wrinkles, folds, Crow's feet, volume loss in the cheeks, and fine lines without undergoing a surgical facelift. In most cases, people who lost significant amounts of weight have areas on their faces that appear uneven or sunken. This makes them great candidates for injectable fillers. Fillers can also help women and men who want to avoid scarring after a surgical facelift or undergoing general anesthesia.
Our Injection Technique
Dr. Gainers will discuss your cosmetic goals before your injection and determine which product works best for you. At the time of the actual procedure, we will clean your skin and apply a topical numbing cream. Though not usually needed, a numbing cream can minimize any discomfort created by the injections. Next, Dr. Gainers will use her experience to determine the correct amount of filler and slowly and meticulously inject it with a fine needle. Depending on the desired outcome, you may need either half or an entire syringe.
What to Expect
Taking about ten minutes to complete, patients can resume their daily activities after the procedure. Because we use a topical anesthetic, you will not experience too much discomfort. Initially, you can expect swelling or bruising, but these symptoms should subside quickly and on their own. Your results can last from a few months to a full year based on the type of filler used and where we placed the injection. A member of our team will help you determine when to schedule your follow-up appointments so you can maintain your results.
