Turn back those hands of time and get more youthful-looking skin with dermal fillers.fillers

Most people shy away from cosmetic services because they often picture invasive procedures that require incisions and long recovery times, but you can still get younger and more radiant skin without aggressive or time-consuming treatments. In fact, our Lapeer and Rochester, MI, cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Douglas Hegyi, can improve the appearance of wrinkles in a matter of minutes.

Do you love to laugh but hate those laugh lines? Have your lips starting to thin out as you get older? Are crow’s feet the only thing you notice when you look in the mirror? If you said “yes” then dermal fillers might just be the best cosmetic option for you.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that are used to increase volume in areas of the face that are beginning to thin out, sag or crease. It’s also great for reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and superficial scars (e.g. acne scars). As we get older our skin begins to lose volume, but dermal fillers can contour and plump up the skin and lips to create a more youthful appearance.

What goes into getting dermal fillers?

This procedure is extremely easy and straightforward. These injections are administered right here in our office and it only takes a couple minutes. For more sensitive or anxious patients, we can apply a numbing cream beforehand to minimize any discomfort. Even without the numbing ointment, patients report only feeling a slight pinch.

There is no recovery time when you get dermal fillers so you can head right back to work or go back to your daily activities right after. There really are no restrictions. While you probably won’t notice results right away you will start to see results after a couple of days (with full results appearing within one week). Results can last several months and up to a year or more, depending on the type of dermal filler you choose. Of course, you can continue to get injections every few months to keep your results fresh.

Who should consider dermal fillers?

Anyone dealing with the issues above who is looking for a simple and non-invasive cosmetic treatment might want to talk to our Lapeer and Rochester cosmetic surgeon about whether dermal fillers could be the best choice. It’s important to talk to us about your treatment goals. While dermal fillers can certainly improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines it won’t be able to offer the same results as a facelift or cosmetic surgery.
