At Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Show Low, AZ, men and women have access to cosmetic treatments that can improve their appearance as well as their self-esteem. The facial area is the first to show the signs of aging due to the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. This causes sagging that results in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients ready to battle the signs of aging without plastic surgery are encouraged to ask our team of associates about dermal fillers.
What is a dermal filler?
Our providers describe dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that can be used directly in the wrinkles and folds of the face to add volume and reduce appearance. In turn, the patient looks youthful. Dermal fillers are typically formulated using hyaluronic acid which is naturally occurring in the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts water, which adds volume where it is injected. The dermal fillers used at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are approved by the FDA for aesthetic purposes.
What are the benefits of dermal fillers?
While some patients may consider more aggressive treatments to address aging facial skin, including surgical facelifts, there are benefits to using dermal fillers for mild to moderate aging skin. The advantages of dermal fillers include:
- Comfortable treatment – patients are given a topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment. This ensures patients are comfortable and pain-free during their appointment.
- No recovery time – dermal filler treatments in Show Low, AZ do not require patients to undergo recovery time. In fact, many patients have their injections performed during their lunch hour and return to work immediately after!
- Reduced chance of side effects – most dermal fillers do not result in side effects, though most patients may experience discomfort and soreness in the treatment area for a few days following injections.
- Affordability – dermal fillers are a safe, non-invasive, and affordable alternative to traditional face lift procedures offered by plastic surgeons. Many patients can pay for their treatment out-of-pocket the day of service.
