Dermal and Facial Injectables in Perth
Dermal fillers and facial injectables are two of the most popular treatments for restoring a youthful appearance. Both procedures use substances that are injected into the skin to plump it up and smooth out wrinkles. Our cosmetic dentists offer both dermal and facial injectables in The Applecross Dentist.
Why You Need Dermal Fillers & Injectables in Perth?
Muscle relaxants and dermal fillers can make a significant difference to your smile. As well as providing a beautiful smile of healthy, straight, white teeth, we can also frame those teeth with equally beautiful lips. We can help remove or decrease facial lines to maintain a youthful, healthy smile and expression.
As we age, the skin loses elasticity, volume and structural support. This can lead to the formation of deep lines, grooves and folds, especially around the mouth. In addition, our lips begin to lose volume and become thinner and less well-defined. Skin folds commonly running between the nose, mouth and chin become lines.
These furrows are among the first to appear on the aging face. These, together with lip enhancements are the primary areas that dermal fillers can treat to improve facial aesthetics. Dermal fillers are a temporary treatment method that provides immediate results by eliminating these facial lines.
What are dermal fillers and what do they do?
Dermal fillers are injectable gels made of substances that are similar to the body’s natural collagen. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin its structure and firmness. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, and the skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Dermal fillers can help to restore some of the lost collagen and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
What are facial injectables and what do they do?
Facial injectables, also called neuromodulators, are injectable substances that temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox is the most popular type of facial injectable. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, such as the ones between the eyebrows (“11” lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
How are dermal filler treatments performed?
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today. The procedure is relatively simple and can be performed in a matter of minutes. First, the doctor will clean and numb the area to be injected. Next, they will carefully inject the dermal filler into the desired area. The filler will then begin to work its magic, filling in lines and wrinkles and giving the skin a more youthful appearance.
Most dermal fillers last for six months to a year, after which time they will need to be replaced. The good news is that dermal fillers are very safe and easy to tolerate, with minimal side effects. With dermal fillers, you can say goodbye to those pesky wrinkles and enjoy a more youthful appearance.
Which treatment is better for me?
The best way to determine which treatment is right for you is to consult with your doctor.
How long do dermal filler treatments last?
Dermal fillers are used to add volume to the skin, filling in lines and wrinkles. The most common dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the product used and the area injected.
Other types of dermal fillers, such as collagen or fat injections, can last for up to 1 year. However, dermal fillers are not permanent and will eventually be metabolized by the body. For most people, touch-up treatments are necessary every 6 months to 1 year to maintain results.
Are fillers safe for your face?
As with any medical procedure, there are some risks involved with dermal fillers. The most common side effects include bruising, swelling, redness, and pain or tenderness at the injection site. In rare cases, allergic reactions or infections may occur.
If you experience any of these side effects, contact your doctor immediately. In most cases, they will resolve on their own within a few days.
At what age should you get fillers?
There is no set age at which you can start getting dermal fillers. However, it is generally recommended that people wait until they are in their mid-20s or early 30s before considering the procedure. This is because the face is still developing and changing during this time, and fillers can help to give the face a more youthful appearance.
What is the cost of a typical dermal filler?
Dermal fillers are used to correct a variety of aesthetic concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. Treatment with dermal fillers is considered safe and effective, with minimal side effects. The cost of dermal fillers varies depending on the type of product used and the treatment area. In your consultation, your cosmetic dentist will discuss with you all details and prices that you should know before treatment.
What to avoid after fillers?
After getting dermal fillers, it is important to avoid any activities that may cause swelling or bruising. For example, you should avoid:
- Drinking alcohol
- Saunas or steam rooms
- Sun exposure
- Strenuous activity
You should also avoid sleeping on your face or lying down for at least four hours after treatment. This will help to prevent the filler from migrating to other areas of your face.
How soon after fillers can I wear makeup?
You should wait at least 24 hours after getting dermal fillers before wearing makeup. This will give the filler time to settle into your face and avoid any irritation.
Can fillers be removed?
In most cases, dermal fillers can be safely removed from the face. However, this is a decision that should be made by your doctor. They will assess your individual case and determine whether or not removal is necessary.
