Basics of Cosmetic Dermal Fillers

With the passage of time, subtle expression lines start to become more noticeable. Crow’s feet, perioral lines, forehead lines, and frown lines slowly start to deepen and ultimately reveal our age to everyone we meet. It’s an inevitable part of life and one that can, fortunately, be treated with the help of cosmetic dermal fillers.

What is a cosmetic dermal filler?

A cosmetic dermal filler is a product used to fill in expression lines around the mouth including marionette lines, frown lines, forehead lines, and contour defects. They can also be used for cheek augmentation and to give your face a more youthful appearance.

There are as many brands and varieties of fillers as there are facial expression lines. Visiting an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Michael Escobedo to learn about your options is essential for the best results.

How are cosmetic fillers injected?

Our process starts by evaluating the treatment areas to properly analyze the loss of volume. We also take into consideration your particular body type and distinct facial features as we begin the process. Each of us is different so an option that might work for someone else might not be as effective for you.

After we determine the best cosmetic dermal filler for you, we begin the correction process with each product. The lines soften before your very eyes, and this often gives those who use the treatments a sense of joy and youthfulness. After injection therapy, you’ll be able to enjoy a more youthful appearance that lasts upwards of 18 months depending on the treatment.

Offering the latest techniques for treatment is essential and Dr. Escobedo prides himself in providing the latest in facial care. For delivery of the treatment, he uses special cannulas that minimize swelling and bruising. He also frequently refreshes his training to ensure that he is providing his patients with the latest techniques in facial care.

When will I see my results?

The results are instant. There might be some slight swelling in the treatment areas as a result of the injection that could last from four hours up to seven days. However, the swelling goes away shortly after the procedure.
