More and more people are looking for aesthetic arrangements without have to resort to surgery to be able to soften the lines of the smile, fill their lips, cheeks or hands.
Injecting dermal fillers into some areas of the face can greatly improve the appearance of easy lines and lots of volume in that area by age or by a number of medical conditions.
In a study conducted for those who carried out a dermal filler approved by the US Food and Drug Administration; respondents were very satisfied with the results of the treatment. However, not all dermal fillers are not for everyone. From the Aesthetic Clinic Dr. Juan Corado in Cork, we know that some types of fillers cannot be suitable for people with certain conditions, such as bleeding disorders or any type of allergy.
If our medical specialist in our clinic confirms that dermal fillers are an option for you, we want to let you know that all medical products carry a number of benefits and certain risks. From the Aesthetic Clinic Dr. Juan Corado certified and experienced in the industry, we recommend that you work with experts such as ours with specialized knowledge in fillers, anatomy, managing complications, and one of the most important qualities. We inform you of all risks and benefits before receiving any treatment.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances very similar to gel that are injected under the skin. These dermal fillers allow us to create a smoother and Fuller appearance on the face of our patients.
From our Aesthetic Clinic Dr. Juan Corado an exhaustive regulation and monitoring of dermal fillers as medical devices is performed. According to an FDA report, all the effects of most dermal fillers are temporary because they are made with materials for the body to eventually break down and absorb. In these cases, you may need to repeat the injection procedure to maintain the desired effect on the face.
In Aesthetic Clinic in Cork, you can find several types of dermal fillers.
Temporary dermal fillers include the following types of materials.
- Hyaluronic acid, sugar that we can find naturally in the body.
- Calcium hydroxyapatite and an important component of bone structure.
- Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biodegradable synthetic material.
There is only one dermal filler that is FDA approved but not absorbable by the body. This dermal filler is made with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) beads suspended in a solution containing bovine collagen.
Which filler do I need?
With the wide variety of dermal filler products that we can find on the market, sometimes it can be very complicated, which is the option that best suits your needs without the guidance of an experienced cosmetic surgeon. From our Aesthetic Clinic Dr. Juan Corado in Cork, we have each product with its unique formula so that it has a certain texture, density and depth of injection, this means that depending on the area where you want to inject the filling should be used on type or another.
What should I expect during treatment?
Dermal filler injections are not invasive, that is, they are not surgical and are usually done during a visit to the clinic.
During the beginning of treatment will be a general consultation, so that our expert cosmetic surgeon can know the concerns and objectives of our patient.
After general consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will evaluate your area of concern and review the patient’s medical history
While stressing that the risks associated with this treatment with dermal fillers are minimal, the expert must know exactly all your medical history before performing which type of treatment, since certain allergies, skin and neurological conditions or even certain medications can jeopardize patient safety or treatment outcomes.
During the injectable filler treatment
Before treatment with dermal fillers, a thorough cleaning of the entire area will be done and you may be given a topical anaesthetic to numb the injection area so that you do not feel anything. Many of the dermal fillers in our Aesthetic Clinic Dr. Juan Corado contains Lidocaine, a mild anaesthetic, which will help you minimize any possible discomfort during and after treatment.
Then our aesthetic expert will inject the precise amount of dermal filler strategically under your skin. Depending on the filler and the treated areas, patients are able to notice the results of the treatment immediately after receiving the dermal filler. Some of our patients have experienced bruising and mild swelling in the area of the prick, but all of these effects are temporary and decrease over the next few days after treatment. Our patients will be able to return to their activities completely normal right after treatment, but our aesthetic experts recommend not to exercise during that day or other vigorous activity.
