Dermal Filler Services
So you’re starting out on your journey to be the best version of yourself, and possibly want a filler. However, there are quite a few things to consider; such as choosing from multiple options for fillers. The best possible way to decide is through a consultation, but it helps to know a little bit before you go in. Aesthetic treatments can be a scary commitment, but quite a few fillers actually have a reversal agent—or antidote—if you change your mind about the treatment a little late. Below, you can read a bit about Juvederm, a dermal filler that we offer in our El Paso office, and see that it can be used on the areas that you are wishing to treat. Keep in mind while reading and viewing the images that results are specific to the individual.
This injectable has a main ingredient of HA (hyaluronic acid), which can be found in our bodies naturally. It, like other fillers, is used to get rid of unwanted lines and wrinkles. It can also add volume to tissue, such as the lips, to give a fuller, youthful look. The HA gel is injected beneath the skin and soaks up the water residing there, thus plumping the targeted area of injection. These results can last six months to a year. Juvederm Ultra XC is more likely to last a year at the very least, while Jevederm Voluma XC (recommended for contouring and adding volume to the cheeks) can last up to 2 years. The antidote for Juvederm is called Hyaluronidase.
*Individual results may vary.
You can expect generally the same range of side effects from most dermal fillers. These side effects should subside in about a week following the initial treatment, but recovery should only take a day. After injections it’s common to experience bruising, redness, soreness, swelling, itching and mild discoloration. Any side effects that you are finding to be more serious should be reported to a doctor immediately. You should also contact your doctor if you are observing these side effects longer than 7 days, as to prevent any risks to your health.
