As we age, our skin loses a lot of its elasticity. Along with the decrease in collagen production, facial skin can begin to sag and lose its youthful look. Thankfully, there are several treatment options that can revitalize your appearance safely and effectively.
One type of treatment is a group of products that use specialized formulas injected just below the skin. Using either hyaluronic or lactic acid, both of which are already naturally created by the body, dermal fillers work by bringing nearby water molecules together to increase the volume in key areas, leaving a more toned and tightened look.
The treatment sessions are quick and easy and can be performed in the office setting in as little as thirty minutes. At American Surgical Arts, as a nationally recognized trainer in dermal fillers, Dr. Bidic uses special techniques during treatment sessions to maximize the effectiveness of the fillers while creating proportional and natural-looking enhancements.
Best of all, there is virtually no recovery time needed after each treatment. Although there may be a little tenderness around the small injection sites, there are no restrictions to activities or work afterward. To maximize the effectiveness, however, it is advised to avoid direct sun exposure and any impacts or pressure against the treated areas.
Nearly every part of the face can be treated and enhanced with dermal fillers. Regardless of the area treated, results should begin to appear within a week or two as nearby water molecules under the skin are naturally drawn in by the hyaluronic or lactic acids. The results generally last about six months, depending on the specific filler used, and repeat treatments can be safely performed around that time.
