Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under your skin to improve the shape of your face, replace lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, and make you look younger. They are FDA-approved and widely used on the lips, cheeks, jawline, chin, marionette lines, under the eyes, temples, and hands.
Many materials can be used as fillers, but the most popular one is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps retain moisture and adds volume to the skin. It is a safe and effective substance that creates a healthier and more relaxed appearance when injected into the targeted area.
You will receive the proper care from our specialists at the Novomed Clinic in Al Ain to help you look your best!
What are the benefits of fillers?
Fillers are a safe and simple treatment that provides natural-looking and long-lasting results without discomfort or downtime. Moreover, fillers have numerous uses, including:
– Reshaping and contouring the nose.
– Removing wrinkles and creases on the face.
– Treating dark circles under the eyes.
– Adding volume to the face and lips.
– Enhancing the appearance of your chin or jawline.
– improving facial symmetry.
– Rejuvenating the hands, décolletage, and other areas of the body.
Am I a suitable candidate for the treatment?
You may be ready for fillers if you have visible signs of aging and realistic expectations. Suitable candidates include those in good overall health who want subtle enhancements to their facial features rather than drastic changes. Those who smoke or have allergies to the filler ingredients may not be suitable candidates for the treatment.
How do I prepare for the treatment?
During your appointment, the dermatologist or plastic surgeon will review your medical history, examine your face, and discuss your cosmetic needs and goals. They will then provide instructions, such as avoiding applying makeup and taking certain medications before your filler treatment.
What should I expect during the treatment?
Depending on the area being treated, the session typically lasts 30 to 60 minutes and does not require anesthesia.
When the dermatologist has determined that filler injections are a good option for you, they will clean the treatment area and apply a numbing lotion to make it as comfortable as possible before administering the injection.
A needle or cannula will be used to inject the filler into the desired locations after the treatment area has been prepared. The practitioner will gently apply the filler while taking into account the desired result and the natural facial contours. The treatment plan agreed upon during the consultation will determine the quantity of filler utilized and the number of injections required.
After carefully placing the filler under the skin, they will massage the treated region to disperse it uniformly and achieve the desired effects.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Even though fillers don’t require downtime, our specialists will provide you with aftercare guidelines, such as refraining from wearing makeup or taking blood thinners for a few days after the appointment. Moreover, you should keep the treated areas out of the sun for at least two days after treatment.
You may experience minor bruising or swelling, but these side effects should subside within a few hours or days. While you can immediately return to normal activities, the doctor might advise against strenuous activity for a few days after the procedure.
What are the expected results of the treatment?
The results of your session will be immediately noticeable, but the full effects won’t be apparent for one or two days until the swelling and redness subside. The filler may take up to 4 weeks to fully integrate to achieve the best results.
Long-lasting results from filler injections can vary based on the patient, area being treated, and filler composition. Fillers often last between 6 and 12 months, sometimes even longer. A hyaluronidase injection can be used to dissolve the hyaluronic acid-based filler if you are unhappy with the treatment’s results.
