Dermal fillers are a great, non-surgical option for restoring youthfulness to the face. In Hailey, Dr. Crais has extensive experience in the various fillers available and can be trusted to help you find the option that is best for you.
What are dermal fillers?
Fillers, or dermal fillers, are injected under the skin to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and deep creases in the face. This treatment is also known as a “liquid facelift” since it provides a lifting effect to the face without the required downtime and invasiveness of a facelift.
Although injectables cannot correct excessive sagging of the skin, they can provide more volume to the hollow contours of the face that have lost volume due to aging, stress, and other related factors. Dermal fillers are usually given in multiple sessions in order to maintain the desired results.
What is Voluma®?
Voluma® provides volume to the temporal and midface area. Particularly, this injectable gel can treat hollow cheeks, restoring the youthful contour and profile of the face. Voluma® is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body.
What are the benefits of Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler developed to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Dr. Crais uses Restylane® specifically to improve the eyelids and augment the lips. This filler is also made of hyaluronic acid. The results of Restylane® can immediately be seen and last up to six months.
What can I expect during the administration of dermal fillers?
Different dermal fillers have different purposes and benefits, which is why it is important to have an initial consultation with Dr. Crais to identify the right type of dermal filler for you.
Dr. Crais makes sure that his patients are comfortable during the procedure and may administer topical anesthetics before starting. Treatments last but a few minutes. You will then be provided ice packs to alleviate any swelling and discomfort that you may feel after treatment.
