Injectable fillers are one of the newest, safest ways to reduce the signs of aging and improve your overall appearance. Fast and efficient, most patients love the flexibility that fillers allow you. Getting a treatment over your lunch hour is not uncommon, and recovery time is minimal with these less invasive procedures that don’t require any general anesthesia.
Those who are in good health can benefit from injectable fillers. The procedures can improve the signs of crow’s feet, frown lines, marionette lines, and loss of facial volume. Some injectable procedures have been known to have results lasting up to a year or more. Safer than traditional methods, injectables and fillers are perfect for those hoping for a fast, easy improvement.
Injectable fillers are administered by a doctor who targets the areas where you are seeking the most improvement. Most procedures require a few injections into the muscles that are causing the folds, lines, and/or wrinkles to form. Injected under the skin using fine needles, the minimally invasive treatments are typically performed as outpatient procedures that only take about 20-30 minutes per session.
Risks & Recovery
Most patients recover immediately after injections, and discomfort is very minimal. This is a benefit over traditional face lift procedures which don’t allow you to walk straight out of the doctors office and show off your beautiful results. Because no general anesthesia is used, risks are very low, but should be discussed with your doctor before you undergo treatment.
