Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
The dermal fillers offered by Eugenia are injectable hyaluronic compounds that diminish facial lines and creases while boosting your face’s volume and fullness. The result is a more youthful, refreshed look. Dermal fillers are noninvasive and temporary, but quite effective.
Why are dermal fillers helpful?
As you age, subcutaneous fat just under your skin starts to recede. This pushes your facial muscles closer to your skin, making lines and wrinkles more obvious. In addition, your production of a natural skin hydrator and strengthener known as hyaluronic acid lessens. You also produce less collagen and elastin, both skin structural compounds.
Dermal fillers help restore hydration, plumpness, and softness. The fillers offered by Eugenia contain hyaluronic acid to replace what you once had. The injections also help boost collagen and elastin production.
If you’re concerned about the signs of aging and desire a more youthful, rejuvenated look, consider dermal filler injections as a noninvasive solution.
What facial concerns can dermal fillers address?
Dermal fillers address a variety of skin concerns associated with aging. Such skin concerns include the following:
- Shallow, hollowed contours in the cheeks
- Thinning lips
- Smokers lines
- Smile lines
- Forehead lines
- Recessed scars
- Lines around the eyes
Dermal fillers offer a temporary solution, but repeat treatments are available so you can always maintain your look.
How long do the effects of dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers last 6-18 months, depending on the formula used, the area treated, and your body’s personal metabolism. Eugenia lets you know what to expect with the dermal fillers she uses to address your specific concerns.
Do dermal filler injections hurt?
Dermal fillers are applied with a needle, so you do feel pinches at a session. Most people tolerate the treatment well. In some formulas made by Juvederm®, lidocaine – a numbing agent – is included in the injection compound. In other cases, Eugenia offers ice or topical cream to numb sensation if you’re concerned about discomfort.
