What are Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid and collagen are at the heart of most dermal fillers. These compounds are used because both hyaluronic acid and collagen are naturally found in your body. Hyaluronic acid is something that sits between your skin cells. It’s what holds moisture in your skin. Collagen, on the other hand, is what’s designed to make your skin flexible and strong. When Dr. Dayan’s team injects hyaluronic acid or collagen into your skin, it can fill in lines, erase wrinkles, and give your skin an overall youthful feel.

What to Expect for Your Dermal Filler Procedure

Your journey with us is not just about injections; it's about embracing a comprehensive wellness regimen that leaves you feeling your best.

Your Dermal Filler Consultation

The consultation is a critical step in your dermal filler journey. This is an opportunity for you to discuss your aesthetic goals and address any concerns or queries. Our injection specialist will assess your facial anatomy, skin condition, and understand your desired outcomes. Based on this assessment, a tailored treatment plan will be suggested. You'll be educated on the type of fillers recommended, their benefits, potential risks, and the expected outcomes. We believe in a collaborative approach, ensuring you're informed and confident before proceeding.

How to Prepare for Your Dermal Filler

To ensure the best results and minimize potential side effects, it's crucial to prepare adequately for your dermal filler appointment:

  • Avoid Blood Thinners: For at least a week prior, refrain from taking aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood-thinning medications unless otherwise instructed by a physician.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment. Hydrated skin can help in achieving optimal results.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Smoking: Abstain from alcohol for at least 24 hours before your treatment and avoid smoking, as it can decrease blood flow and affect healing.
  • Skincare: Keep your skin clean and free from excessive moisturizers, oils, or makeup on the day of the treatment.
  • Inform Your Injector: If you have a history of cold sores or any other skin conditions, make sure to inform your injection specialist in advance.
  • Stay Relaxed: It's natural to feel anxious, but remember, you're in skilled hands. Trust the process and look forward to the transformative results.
Following these guidelines sets the stage for a smoother procedure and optimal outcomes.

During Your Dermal Filler Procedure

Your dermal filler appointment is a straightforward yet transformative experience. Upon arrival, our professional team will welcome you and ensure you're comfortable. The target area will be cleaned, and a numbing agent may be applied to minimize discomfort. The filler will be carefully injected into the designated areas using precision and expertise to rejuvenate and refresh your look. The procedure typically lasts 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the treated areas. Once completed, our team will provide post-treatment care instructions to maximize results and ensure longevity.

Dermal Filler Aftercare & Recovery Timeline

Immediately after the injections, you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror and see the positive results. There may be some bruising, there may be some redness, and there may be some swelling after the injections, but these quickly go away. You are left with younger, fresher skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical option for those experiencing the natural facial aging process. These changes begin subtly in the 20s and continue throughout life, primarily affecting the underlying skin tissue. The face and neck often bear the most noticeable effects of aging due to environmental factors. Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for individuals looking to address these signs of aging without invasive procedures. Candidates are typically healthy, possess realistic expectations, and seek to enhance their facial appearance while maintaining a natural look.

Dermal Filler Benefits

In aesthetics, the "triangle of beauty" holds sway. In our youth, our facial shape forms a natural triangle, with the chin as the downward apex. Yet, as time takes its toll, facial volume diminishes, and the skin begins to sag towards the chin, altering the triangle into a rectangular or inverted shape. Dermal fillers offer a low-risk solution with numerous advantages, including:

  • Enhanced Volume: Our expertly administered dermal filler treatments refresh your skin periodically, helping you maintain a youthful radiance.
  • Minimally Invasive: Our top-tier filler products and fine needles ensure minimal discomfort during treatment. You can swiftly resume your daily routine.
  • Quick Results: While some improvements are immediately visible, areas with fine lines or lost volume may take a few days or weeks to fully benefit as the filler settles and stimulates collagen production.
