Injectable dermal fillers
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Facial creases, shadows, and deflation (volume loss) can be caused by genetics as well as time. These concerns make the face look less radiant, often fatigued, and even sad. The contemporary uses of injectable fillers with hyaluronic acid have offered a quick and immediate fix to this problem. It is imperative that the injector possesses artistic skill as well as a comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy to offer the patient a safe and effective outcome. All fillers have certain characteristics that make them ideal for a particular area of the face. At CosMedic LaserMD we use fillers that are FDA cleared.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Using a fine needle, Dr. Macha will gently injects the dermal filler into the treatment area. Patients may feel some poking or stinging from the injections at this time. Much like a sponge, the primary function of the hyaluronic acid found in dermal fillers is to bind to and retain water, restoring volume under the skin. As the injected molecules attract and bind to water molecules, the volume beneath your skin will increase, restoring a smoother and more youthful appearance immediately after.
How Soon Can I See Results?
People who receive dermal filler injections are always eager to see the results of this procedure, especially if they have never done it before, and you will be happy to know that once the swelling goes down in three days or so, you should see a fuller, more youthful look right away. Dermal fillers last a long time, so you will continue to enjoy your look for quite a while. While some people need a follow-up treatment in six months, others can see their dermal fillers lasting for as much as two years.

Injectable fillers have revolutionized facial rejuvenation and enhancement. Facial deflation (or volume loss) begins at about the age of 30 and contributes to dark circles under the eyes, flattened cheeks, thinning of the temples (peanut-head), lines/shadows on the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), and lip thinning.
