Dermal fillers, we all know what they are and what they do, but are they right for you? Fillers are so much more than cosmetic treatments to hide your wrinkles or plump your lips and cheeks. They are the perfect minimally invasive treatment that has a huge impact on your self-confidence. If you have been thinking about getting fillers in Miami, read through what you need to know about dermal fillers in Miami before taking the plunge. Dr. Roudner is happy to meet with you to discuss any of your concerns or answer your questions before the procedure.
Fillers Made of Hyaluronic Acid are Preferred
Before you get fillers confused with neurotoxins like Botox, make sure you know they do two different things. Botox freezes your muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while fillers fill the wrinkles in. In the past, collagen was the most used filler but over time the most popular fillers like Juvederm and Restylane use hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid stores moisture which as a result gives your skin a hydrated and plump look. This ingredient can be found in creams or moisturizers but it’s also in fillers. When injected, it will add to any natural plumping action. In addition, it will replenish the natural production your body produces of hyaluronic acid. This normally diminishes with age. If you choose a filler that contains hyaluronic acid, this is good news for you. Expect more natural results.
One Injection Can Last for Months
One thing that most patients don’t know about fillers is how long they last. Today’s fillers can actually last for months at a time before you need to return for another injection. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers results can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months which is significantly longer than fillers of the past. HA dermal fillers may actually stimulate collagen production in your body, therefore making you look younger for longer.
Good Fillers Will Look Natural
If this is your first time getting fillers, you should know that a good filler will look natural. This is why so many plastic surgeons in Miami choose to use HA dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm. There should be no obvious sign that you have fillers on your face or lips. Fillers can produce natural-looking results with the right ingredients and injector.
Filler Techniques are Important
When it comes to injecting fillers, the technique is very important. Just ten years ago, if you wanted to reduce the appearance of the lines around your mouth, we would inject the filler into the nasolabial folds or laugh lines to literally fill in the wrinkles. Today, we take a different approach. Now we inject the fillers to plump and fill other areas of your face for more natural looking results. When you age, your fat pads begin to slide down your face which can cause folds at the bottom of your cheeks. By injecting the fillers near the cheekbones to restore fullness, this can reduce the appearance of smile lines. When receiving fillers, make sure your injector is using a proper technique for the best results.
It Matters Who Gives You Your Filler
We’re not just saying this because we want your business, but because we don’t want you to make the mistake of visiting a discount dermatologist or an unqualified person to inject your fillers. When you visit a qualified and board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Lenny Roudner, you can expect phenomenal results. Make sure to take a look at some of our before and after photos so you can see if our results are what you are looking for. If you are exploring all of your different options, be sure to read reviews and look at before and after photos before making a final decision.
Fillers Can Be Used for Prevention and Treatment
You might not know this, but dermal fillers in Miami can actually be used for both prevention of wrinkles as well as a treatment for wrinkles. This means that you would visit us in your twenties or early thirties to receive fillers to prevent wrinkles from popping up. If you would prefer the wait and see route, feel free to just visit us at the first sign of wrinkles. Remember, you can prevent signs of aging by simply just wearing sunscreen and moisturizing with retinol creams.
Different Fillers Have Different Uses
There is a large variety of dermal fillers out there and each one does something a little different. Some fillers work best for filling in lines while others are intended for plumping your cheeks or lips. Leave your product choice to your plastic surgeon so you can reap the best results possible.
Bad Filler Results Can Happen But Can Be Fixed
If you had bad results with your last fillers, don’t worry. It’s more common than you think. If this has happened to you, don’t worry because we can fix it. Visit our office and we may need to inject more fillers to balance the old ones out or just dissolve the fillers altogether. With hyaluronic acid fillers, we can inject a serum to dissolve the fillers.
If the Price Is Too Low, Question It
To give you an idea of how much you should be paying, most doctors pay about $250 to $350 for one syringe of Restylane. If you visit a place that is going to charge you less than that, you should be concerned. It’s possible that the product is fake or diluted. Ask to see the box and look for the safety seal first.
