What Concerns Can Benefit Most from Dermal Fillers?

  • Fine lines around the lips

  • Loss of volume in the cheeks
  • Facial wrinkles
  • Scar indentations
  • Neck creases

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

If you are noticing volume loss, wrinkles, and lines in your face resulting from the aging process or genetics, you may want to consider this age-defying treatment, approved by the FDA for people starting at age 21. The best candidate for treatment will take into consideration the following precautions:

  • If you have a history of facial cold sores, dermal filler injections could possibly cause an outbreak, so you will want to make sure that you have spoken with your doctor to take preventative medication before treatment.
  • Consuming any of the following may increase bleeding and bruising and should be avoided prior to treatment: St. John’s Wart, vitamin E supplements (high doses), and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.

Dr. Cox will review your medical history to ensure the treatment is a safe, comfortable, and successful experience that gives you the high-quality, natural aesthetic results that you desire.

What Is the Treatment Process?

Dr. Cox will assess your face and map out the strategic placement of the injections. After careful artistic planning, she will cleanse the site with an antimicrobial agent and then apply a local anesthetic or ointment to numb the area. Using an ultrafine needle, the skin is injected with Restylane to even out wrinkles and lines, creating the appearance of smooth, plump features that look young and radiant again. Depending on how many areas are treated, the entire process can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

What Is the Recovery Process?

Hyaluronic facial fillers are one of the easiest aesthetic treatments because they are quick and require no downtime or recovery. Although some swelling, bruising, and redness may be experienced after the treatment, Restylane injections are typically painless, with no pain medication required. While the area may feel tender for 24-48 hours, most patients are able to resume their day-to-day activities right away.

How soon will I see the results?

One of the best aspects of Restylane treatment is that the results are immediately visible. While the filler settles, for the first 5-7 days, your skin will appear smooth and plump. As your body absorbs the filler and develops more collagen in the sub-dermal layers, your skin will gradually look more and more hydrated and lustrous.

How long do the results last?

The results of Restylane injections last anywhere from 6-9 months and then gradually fade from the body. With a strategically planned treatment program, the effects can last up to 18 months. Dr. Cox recommends a customized maintenance plan for each patient.

What are the risks of undergoing Restylane injections?

Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, dermal fillers are considered safe, and there is very little risk of the body rejecting them or having an allergic reaction. The most common side effects are:

  • Pain, itching, or swelling at the site of the injection
  • Bruising
  • Discomfort or tenderness
  • Headache

These symptoms typically pass within 24-48 hours, making this one of the most efficient and effective treatments for replenishing the skin’s youthful glow.
