Aside from providing an excellent alternative to plastic surgery, injectable fillers have many benefits. They are safe and long lasting, treatment is fast, and both men and women have a high rate of satisfaction with their results. Here are a few more reasons why injectable fillers are such a popular choice at Mission Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Doezie uses JUVÉDERM® and other hyaluronic acid products to fill fine lines, facial wrinkles and folds, and hollows in the cheeks. Hyaluronic acids are sugars naturally found in the skin. They promote hydration and elasticity to give fullness to facial areas that appear sunken or to the cheeks for a more youthful appearance. All of the products Dr. Doezie uses are FDA approved and have been proven safe for use as facial dermal fillers.
Results with any dermal filler are long lasting but not permanent, which makes them an excellent option for those who may be timid about a surgical facelift or who want to see how they might look if they had a cosmetic procedure done. Restylane® lasts from six to nine months, and JUVÉDERM® can last from nine months to one year. Many patients choose to schedule their injections annually to maintain their results.
Injectable fillers are considered a “lunch-hour” treatment, which means that patients can return to their regular activities right after their injections. The treatment takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the number of areas treated. Most patients experience only slight redness, swelling, and bruising at the areas of injection.
Used for Lip Augmentation
Facial fillers can also be used to augment the lips, with results that can last up to six months. This small procedure does wonders to boost the confidence level of patients. Lip augmentation also takes just minutes to complete, and patients can return to normal activities following treatment.
Results are apparent immediately, but the final results will not be apparent for a few weeks once all of the minimal swelling dissipates and the product has fully settled in the skin. Patients can look up to five years younger with their reduced wrinkles and rejuvenated facial appearance. We recommend a follow-up appointment with Dr. Doezie to ensure you are completely happy with your results.
