For residents of Maryland who are worried about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in their necks and faces but who don’t want the risk or expense of plastic surgery, dermal fillers are just the thing. These are simply biocompatible substances that are injected beneath the skin with fine needles. The result is the plumping out of wrinkled and dry areas and a client who looks refreshed and ready to take on the world.
Best of all, dermal filler treatments are not only less expensive than plastic surgery, but they are outpatient procedures. Indeed, some of them can be done on a client’s lunch hour. Plastic Surgery Specialists, the premier plastic surgery and medical spa in Maryland, recommends having a dermal filler treatment at the beginning of the weekend. That way, our clients have those days to rest up!
Types of Dermal Fillers: The Temporary
Residents of Easton and Annapolis are opting more and more for dermal fillers to soften the signs of aging, boost their self-confidence and restore a more youthful appearance to their faces. Both men and women can benefit from our dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are temporary, semi-permanent or permanent. Temporary fillers include those that use hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a perfectly natural substance that’s found in every living thing. It plumps out areas in the face or neck that are dry or wrinkled and gives volume to lips and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid also reduces the appearance of acne scars.
Our patients can choose from such popular fillers as Juvederm, Radiesse, Vollure, Vobella, Restylane, Restylane Lyft and Voluma. These treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive. Their aim is to either replace the collagen naturally found beneath the skin or to stimulate the body into producing its own. The addition of collagen adds volume and smooths out wrinkles and lines in the client’s face. These fillers, which are injected with fine needles, last about six months to a year, however results may vary.
Clients sometimes wonder why topical treatments don’t reduce the look of lines and wrinkles as much as they would like. It’s simply because these lotions, creams and serums don’t address the crux of the problem, which is damage to the skin caused by time, gravity, toxins and the sun’s ultraviolet rays. All of these things cause the collagen in the skin to break down. As a result, the skin is less supple, and the lines appear. The collagen supplied by a dermal filler causes these lines to smooth out.
Our patients turn to fillers to correct the following problems:
- Marionette lines on the sides of the mouth
- Frown lines and smile lines
- Crow’s feet
- Acne scars
- Other types of scars
- Vertical lip lines, or smoker’s lines
- Worry lines
- Thin lips
Dermal Filler Consultation and Treatment
It takes a few weeks for the improvements to reach their peak. A patient can come in for a consultation, and if they’re deemed a good candidate for the treatment, can have it performed on the same day.
Dermal Filler Recovery
Dermal filler treatments are inpatient treatments, so our patients can come in, have the procedure, than go about the rest of their day. There may be some redness at the injection site.
About Botox and Chemical Peels
Botox is the most popular wrinkle-reducing treatment in the world, but it works in a very different way than a dermal filler. Chemical peels remove the dead, dry cells at the top layer of the skin to leave skin smooth and with a more even tone. A patient could have Botox and a chemical peel at the same time, however our skin care experts will advise you in consultation.
