Dermal fillers are a great way to look natural and youthful without having to undergo any surgery. It is a simple gel-like substance that is injected beneath the surface of the skin to smooth out any lines, wrinkles or signs of aging. Since it comes in many types, it is more accessible for people who may be allergic to different materials. Dermal fillers are an easy short term solution for aging skin which is why it is very popular. Gartner plastic surgery and laser clinic offers Dermal fillers done by a certified professional plastic surgeon and makes sure that you leave with smoother and younger looking skin.
To put it simply, dermal fillers are injectable implants that are FDA approved. They help smooth out the skin and any wrinkles as well as restore volume. Dermal fillers are an extremely popular procedure and more than 1 million people opt for it each year. Other than smoothing out wrinkles there are also many other advantages of getting dermal fillers. People might choose them to restore volume in the sunken cheeks or in the temples, smooth out any creases in the chin, plump and enhance lips and many other reasons as well. A consultation with Dr. Gartner can determine which areas of your face can be helped with dermal fillers and if it is a good option for you. He is a board certified plastic surgeon who has years of experience doing the procedure. Thus, you can be assured that you are in the best hands when you come into our clinic.
There are mainly 3 types of fillers that can be used for this procedure. Each material has a different time frame that it can last. These are:
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our skin thus it is one of the easiest fillers to have and can be absorbed by the body fairly quickly. These fillers last about 6-12 months depending on the patient and are great in keeping the skin plump and hydrated. Some examples of these HA fillers are Restylane, Juvéderm and Belotero. Gartner plastic surgery and laser center in New york offers all of these fillers for the ease and accessibility of our patients. After a consultation Dr. Micheal can determine which filler is best suited for you.
This is another substance that is naturally found within our body. Usually this type of filler is thicker than the hyaluronic filler and therefore lasts longer. Normally it lasts up to 12 months, but it can be longer depending on the condition of the patient. Another great benefit associated with filler is that CaHA is said to promote collagen formation in the body which can be great for the skin. This filler is generally used for patients that have deeper wrinkles or lines in the face. The approved filler for this material is radiesse which we offer at Gartner plastic surgery and laser center.
This material is not a natural material that exists within the body, although it is a biodegradable synthetic substance. Poly-L-lactic Acid fillers are also considered collagen stimulators as their main purpose is to smooth out the wrinkles by helping your skin rebuild collagen. The filler itself doesn’t last long and dissipates within a few days. The actual results of the filler can last up to 2 years. It is highly advised that you get your fillers from a professional like Dr. Gartner who has previous experience and training in these fillers and makes sure that there are no complications or side effects. The filler Sculptra is popular for this substance, and you can get them done easily at Gartner plastic surgery and laser center New York.
An ideal candidate for dermal filler is an adult over the age of 18 that has deep lines or wrinkles on the face that need to be smoothed out and is looking to plump up their skin. They are great for both men and women and generally best for people who are looking to target a specific area on the face. Some reasons why people may choose dermal fillers are:
Thinning or sunken cheeks caused by a loss of volume
Thin or unevenly shaped lips
A receding chin
Minor nose deformities
Deep nose to mouth lines
Lines around the mouth
People that are not ideal for fillers are pregnant and nursing women as there is no research if the filler is okay for the baby, thus it should be avoided. Smokers should also avoid getting fillers. For smokers the filler takes longer to heal and for the results to show. There is also a higher chance of more favorable results in non-smokers than in smokers.
You should also avoid any dental appointments or dental procedures right after the filler, this can stretch out the skin and displace the filler. Dr. Gartner can conduct a consultation with each patient and let you know if you are a good candidate for filler. He will also advise the patient on the best type of filler for their skin depending on their problem.
Since dermal filler is a non-surgical non-invasive technique there are minimum to no side effects associated with the treatment. Some patients might experience some redness, swelling or bruising after the procedure, however it should go away in a couple of days. By getting an experienced doctor like Dr. Gartner, you can minimize all risks and side effects that may come from the filler. He will advise you on what you are not allowed to have before the filler to reduce any bruising and discoloration after the treatment. He will also advise the patient on the proper aftercare needed to make sure that the results are exactly as you want.
