It’s normal to feel unhappy about your wrinkles, thinning lips, and other aging facial features. Fortunately, it’s easy to correct these issues and improve your self-esteem with dermal fillers. These injectable products can enhance the size and shape of your lips, fade your wrinkles, and plump sagging cheeks. At OptimizeFaceMD in Aliso Viejo, California, we can use a fantastic device called DermaSculpt to make your dermal fillers even more effective.
How Does DermaSculpt Work?
DermaSculpt Microcannula is a specialized medical device that is used to administer dermal fillers. Using this device to perform your cosmetic injections will make your dermal fillers more efficient and comfortable.
A Frustrating Issue
In the past, healthcare professionals usually used bigger needles to administer dermal fillers. Sometimes, these needles damaged nerves and blood vessels. As a result, people were likely to experience discomfort during their injections. Further, people experienced bruising and other negative symptoms after they received their dermal fillers.
A New Injection Method
Fortunately, we don’t have to use the same sort of needles to administer your dermal filler. Instead, we will use our DermaSculpt Microcannula. This specialized device has a blunt tip that will slide around your nerves and blood vessels when we perform your injections.
This device will make your appointment more comfortable. As we use this cannula to smoothly transmit your chosen product into your tissues, you will feel relaxed. Further, preserving your blood vessels and nerves will enable your body to quickly recover from your dermal filler. Since you will have minimal bruising, you will be able to immediately return to your job and social activities.
An Effective Technique
In addition to improving your comfort levels, this specialized device will make your chosen filler more effective. We will move this device back and forth as we administer your chosen product into your body. This gentle motion will encourage your tissues to produce larger amounts of collagen. Improving your production of collagen will renew your skin and allow you to look young and fresh.
We will also use a special technique to move your dermal filler into your desired locations on your face. This technique will allow us to use a smaller number of entry points to improve multiple areas of your face. Instead of getting a large number of injections, you will be able to receive just a couple of comfortable punctures.
How Do Dermal Fillers Improve My Appearance?
Our dermal fillers use a gentle sugar called hyaluronic acid to improve the skin on your face or hands. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that your body creates on its own. This sugar helps your skin remain youthful, plump, and hydrated.
When we inject a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid into your body, this ingredient will add volume to your skin. This additional volume can fill in wrinkles and plump hollow cheeks. We can also use this ingredient to improve the structure and shape of your lips.
What Types of Dermal Fillers Can I Use to Improve My Appearance?
At OptimizeFaceMD, we offer a wide range of high-quality fillers. Each of these fillers uses a unique combination of ingredients to improve specific features on your hands or face.
Juvederm Voluma is a long-lasting filler that can be injected into the deeper tissues in your cheeks and chin. As you get older, the middle portion of your face is likely to become hollow and gaunt. This change can make you look tired or sad. Injecting Juvederm Voluma into the tissues in the middle of your face will plump your cheeks, contour your profile, and improve the appearance of your wrinkles.
Since this filler affects the deeper tissues in your body, your plump, full cheeks will last for a long time. However, to achieve the best outcome, you will probably need to receive multiple injections. In general, we recommend getting two Juvederm Voluma injections. You should wait for one month before you receive your second set of injections.
Juvederm Volbella is a subtle, flexible filler that can improve the size, shape, and structure of your lips. In addition, we can use this filler to fix your lipstick lines and wrinkles. Since Juvederm Volbella is very smooth and thin, your improvements will look natural and sophisticated.
Juvederm Vollure is a dermal filler that can fade lines and creases that appear in the lower portion of your face. This filler can be used to correct marionette lines that appear on your chin, near your jawline, and on the sides of your mouth. We can also use this filler to fix folds around your nose and add moisture to the skin on the lower area of your face.
Restylane Lyft is a powerful filler that can be used to improve the appearance of your hands and face. Your hands are one of the first parts of your body to lose volume and become wrinkled as you age. This filler can be used to give your hands a fuller, more youthful appearance. In addition, this filler can lift your cheeks and correct folds and wrinkles on your face.
This product is designed to create artistic, sophisticated changes in your appearance. To achieve this goal, Restylane Lyft uses specialized ingredients that will improve the elasticity of your skin. Since this product also contains a numbing agent called lidocaine, you will be comfortable when we administer your injections.
Other Restylane Products
In addition to Restylane Lyft, we offer Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Silk. These fillers can enhance a variety of features on your face. For example, Restylane Silk can be used to make your lips look larger and more attractive.
How Quickly Will I Recover From My Dermal Filler?
Since our special DermaSculpt device will allow us to administer your fillers in a quick, gentle manner, you will have a very short recovery period. You will be able to leave our office after you receive your filler and continue with the rest of your daily activities in Aliso Viejo.
However, to achieve the most positive changes in your skin, you will need to avoid drinking alcohol and exposing your skin to strong sunlight for a little while. In addition, you should not go running, take an exercise class, or perform other difficult physical activities for the next 24 hours.
When Will I See Improvements in My Skin?
All of our dermal fillers are able to produce quick improvements in your skin. In general, you will see some positive changes in your face or hands immediately. For example, if you used a filler to plump your cheeks, the skin in this area of your body will look fuller and smoother. However, your filler will need some time to settle into your skin, and you are likely to see the final changes in your hands or face within two weeks.
Will My Dermal Filler Permanently Improve My Appearance?
Our dermal fillers do not produce permanent changes in your face or hands. Instead, your tissues will gradually absorb your chosen filler during the next several months or years. As your body metabolizes your filler, your smooth skin and other improvements will begin to wear off.
Since each of our fillers contains a unique formulation of ingredients, your results will last for varying lengths of time. However, our fillers are very effective, and you should be able to enjoy the positive changes in your skin for a significant amount of time. For example, Juvederm Voluma can improve your cheeks and other features for up to two years.
Maintaining Your Enhancements
You can maintain the changes in your face or hands by getting touch-up injections. The frequency of your touch-up appointments will depend on the type of dermal filler that you received, the features that you are improving, your personal preferences, and other variables.
Are Dermal Fillers a Safe Way to Improve My Appearance?
Our Juvederm and Restylane fillers have been approved by the FDA. Multiple scientific studies have shown that these injectable products produce consistent, reliable results. Further, people have been using hyaluronic acid fillers to improve their lips, cheeks, and other features for a very long time. In 2019, healthcare providers used hyaluronic acid fillers to provide more than two million treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Special Injection Method?
If you are eligible to receive dermal fillers, you are likely to be a good candidate for this unique injection method. That said, under some circumstances, we may not be able to use this method to administer your fillers. For example, we may not be able to use DermaScupt to perform your treatment if you have received permanent fillers in the past.
We will talk about your health and examine your skin before you receive your dermal filler. At this point, you should tell us about any dermal fillers or other injectable products that you have received. We will use this information to determine a suitable injection method for you.
Am I Eligible to Receive Dermal Fillers?
The hyaluronic acid in our dermal fillers is a very safe, gentle ingredient. As a result, you will probably be eligible to use one or more of our dermal fillers to improve your face or hands. That said, you cannot use some of our hyaluronic acid-based fillers if you are allergic to lidocaine. In addition, you must not be allergic to the gram-positive bacterial proteins that are used to manufacture our dermal fillers.
You also should not receive dermal fillers while you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are dealing with a rash or injection in your target area, you will need to give your skin time to heal before you receive your injections.
Can I Use Other Injectable Products to Improve My Appearance?
In addition to dermal fillers, we can use Botox to fade your creases and lines. Botox is a popular injectable product that is used to improve imperfections that appear on the upper portion of your face. We can use this product to smooth the lines around your eyes and the creases on your forehead.
When we inject this product into your face, it will reduce the frequency of your muscle contractions. Stopping these muscles from contracting will make your lines and wrinkles less noticeable. This product works quickly, and your lines will become less visible within a couple of days. The positive changes in your face are likely to last for several months after you receive your injections.
