Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that help plump up or “fill” your skin.
As you age, your body stops producing collagen and elastin, two proteins that minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers contain synthetic ingredients that replace lost facial fat and proteins.
The results don’t last forever, but with routine maintenance, it’s possible to achieve vibrant and youthful-looking skin for months or even years at a time*.
At FLASH Dentspa, the experienced clinicians use dermal fillers to treat various cosmetic issues, including:
You might also be a candidate for dermal fillers if you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your chest (décolletage) or the backs of your hands.
At FLASH Dentspa, professional clinicians administer dermal fillers. Your provider reviews your medical records and asks about your goals before performing a quick exam and making treatment recommendations.
Dermal filler treatment typically takes between 20 and 30 minutes. First, your FLASH Dentspa provider cleans and anesthetizes your skin. Then, they administer a series of injections into strategic areas. The number of injections you receive depends on various factors, including your age and cosmetic concerns.
After you get dermal fillers, it’s normal to experience mild redness and bruising at the injection sites. These symptoms should improve within a day or two, but if they persist or worsen, contact FLASH Dentspa.
Avoid strenuous exercise and drinking alcohol during the first 48 hours. If your skin itches or swells, apply aloe vera gel to the affected area. In addition, wash your hands every time you touch your face to reduce the risk of infection.
Some people notice an immediate improvement in their skin following treatment, but for others, it takes several days or weeks. To ensure lasting results, FLASH Dentspa recommends scheduling routine maintenance every 6-12 months.
