Frederick, MD residents learn what to expect from injectable cosmetic fillers
Once you have decided you want to slow the aging process, you might be wondering where to start or what to expect. Injectable cosmetic fillers are an effective treatment for skin rejuvenation. With an office in Frederick, MD,Dr. Prussick of Washington Dermatology Center offers dermal fillers to add volume to the face. Patients may request injectable fillers for any of the following reasons:
- plumping the lips
- filling in lines and wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds around the mouth
- adding volume to hollowed areas of the face
What to expect from your appointment
Your doctor first assesses your areas of need. Take this time to discuss your medical history and your experience, if any, with dermal fillers. Be open and honest as to what you would like to achieve with fillers. This discussion helps your doctor determine the appropriate injectable filler and how much to use.
The problem areas are cleansed. If you have concerns about pain, a numbing agent may be used. Injections only take a few moments to allow the filler to enter under the skin adding volume to the treatment area. The effects of cosmetic fillers are immediate.
Recovery and results
Most patients do not require downtime following a dermal filler injection. Some patients may experience swelling, discomfort, or tenderness at the injection site. Ice packs may help with any discomfort you experience. Strenuous activity and rubbing the treatment areas should be avoided to ensure the filler does not migrate to unwanted areas. Depending upon the exact filler used, most patients have nice results for six to twelve or more months.
