What are fillers?
Thrive Med Spa & Wellness is all about “what’s natural” but also what works! We love dermal fillers because they are a form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found all throughout the skin that holds water and builds collagen.
Your aesthetic practitioner will inject the dermal filler gel just beneath the skin to improve its appearance and help you look years younger, immediately.
Clients will often leave looking as though they’ve erased away 5-10 plus years of aging and are extremely satisfied with results. More than 1 million men and women choose fillers each year for this reason.
Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid help:
- Reduce visible signs of aging
- Decrease lost facial volume
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Plump the lips
- Improve facial symmetry
It’s a cost-effective aesthetic solution that can drastically improve your appearance without cutting, surgery, or downtime.
What are hyaluronic acid fillers made of?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in your body that keeps your skin hydrated and plump. Fillers are often infused with lidocaine to maximize comfort during the injections.
Examples of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers include:
- Belotero Balance®
- Juvéderm® products
Over time, your body naturally absorbs particles in hyaluronic acid fillers. Most fillers can also be dissolved, and while this isn’t something that typically happens, it gives clients peace of mind to know that the treatment is reversible when trying this service for the first time.
While anti-aging results associated with fillers are long-lasting, they aren’t permanent. You may need follow-up treatments to maintain your new, youthful look.
What should I expect during treatment?
Prior to receiving dermal fillers, a practitioner at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness reviews your medical history and aesthetic expectations and examines your skin to make sure you’re a good candidate for hyaluronic acid fillers.
Your consultation and your procedure may happen on different days, depending on timing and if you meet pre-treatment requirements.
During the procedure, your provider cleans your skin and may offer you a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and maximize comfort. We inject a specific amount of filler material just beneath your skin, which takes just minutes to complete.
What happens after dermal filler injections?
You might notice desirable results associated with dermal fillers immediately after your injections but may also experience some temporary swelling and mild bruising. These symptoms should disappear within a few days.
There’s no downtime after hyaluronic filler injections. You can resume normal everyday activities right away, except for strenuous exercise until the following day.
How long will my results last?
Everybody is different, so the length of time your fillers last depends on the areas treated and the depth of the injections.
Hyaluronic acid fillers generally last about 6-18 months or up to three years in some cases. Your practitioner lets you know what to expect and how often you require maintenance injections.
