Many clients ask, what are dermal fillers? The term, ‘Filler’ is an over-arching term for products that adds volume to the face. The dermal fillers in Vernon that Dr. Dargie utilizes are primarily composed of hyaluronic acid. Along with collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid is one of the three primary molecules that make up the skin. As we age, we produce less of these three molecules resulting in dryer, thinner and more wrinkled skin. Undergoing a dermal filler treatment can produce incredible results and a more rejuvenated appearance.
What are the benefits of dermal fillers?
At North Okanagan Skin and Laser, which is a medi spa in Vernon, Dr. Dargie utilizes hyaluronic acid filler injections as an essential facial rejuvenation technique. Facial ageing is a process everyone experiences!
As we age, our fat pads atrophy, bone recedes, skin laxity increases, which leads to overall volume loss and a hollowed look. Dermal fillers are key to slowing this process and helping age gracefully. Dermal fillers, when injected by an experienced medical doctor or highly trained nurse, can restore volume loss. Their effects are immediate, and patients don’t have to wait to see their results. They have minimal downtime. Results can last for years, depending on the treatment area and product used. The cost is significantly less than surgical intervention. The products hydrates the skin producing a refreshed and natural look.
What are the possible side effects of dermal fillers?
Choosing a highly trained injector is imperative to producing desired results and avoiding serious complications. Make sure your injector takes the time to review the potential risks of treatment and is properly trained to identify problems should they occur. Dr. Dargie goes through all the possible risks and answers any questions patients have at his medi spa in Vernon.
What is the treatment process of dermal fillers?
Once a comprehensive treatment plan has been discussed, Dr. Dargie has his assistant apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. Once the cream has been removed, and the treatment area appropriately cleansed the injections themselves take only a few minutes. Typically these are painless and well-tolerated, which is another reason why these procedures are so popular. Results are immediate, and patients can leave the clinic and feel great about their results.
