While the quest for younger looking skin often leads to surgical procedures such as a facelift, brow lift or neck lift, there are areas of the face that remain stubbornly elusive and unreachable via these avenues. Dermal Fillers bridge the gap, targeting age-induced blemishes such as wrinkles, laugh lines, brow furrows, crow’s feet and tear troughs with remarkable precision. They also work to effortlessly restore lost volume and plumpness, something that surgery cannot always achieve. For many clients, dermal fillers represent a safe, non-invasive alternative to the incisions, anesthesia and longer recovery times associated with traditional cosmetic operations, and they have therefore become increasingly popular and in demand worldwide.
A topical anesthetic may be used to numb the area if necessary, though often times the procedure causes little pain. Dr. Shabdiz prefers to inject patients when they are awake and seated upright and interacting with him. Patients are prepped before and ice compresses are applied immediately after the treatments.
Juvederm has enjoyed immense worldwide popularity, and is known internationally as among the best “liquid facelifts” on the market. It is especially effective in treating marionette lines, oral commissures, and nasolabial folds. Fueled by hyaluronic acid, an organic hydrating compound that naturally bonds with elastin and collagen to reinvigorate sagging, depleted skin tissue, Juvederm can deliver spectacular results for up to 12 months. It is approved for all skin tones and textures, and requires no downtime for recovery.
After the skin is prepped with a local numbing agent and thoroughly cleaned, injections typically take about 15 minutes, with minimal side effects. Patients can return to work, school or exercise on the same day as the procedure.
RISKS OF DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal fillers are one of the safest facial rejuvenation procedures available to patients today. The hyaluronic fillers used are extremely skin-friendly and generally do not cause users any allergies or infections.
As with other cosmetic procedures, there are certain post-treatment symptoms that you may notice. Swelling, minor bruising and bleeding are common; and they will reduce a few hours after the procedure. Pain is negligible, but you can ask the doctor to prescribe pain should you need it.
One of the biggest risks of getting dermal filler injectable is asymmetry. If you visit an inexperienced doctor, you may accidentally become a victim of a botched-up job. But, with an experienced medical practitioner like Dr. Shabdiz by your side, you have nothing to worry about.
A consummate professional, Dr. Shabdiz will ensure that he maintains the natural lines of your face and will ensure you get the very best treatment. Feel free to book an appointment with Dr. Shabdiz.
COST OF DERMAL FILLERS
Each syringe of the dermal filler costs anywhere between $500 and $1,300 per 1ml, based on the following factors:
- AREA OF FACE TO BE ADMINISTERED
- EXTENSIVENESS OF THE PROCEDURE
- THE QUANTITY OF DERMAL FILLERS NEEDED
A LONG-LASTING SOLUTION
Dermal fillers are a long-term solution to facial hollowness and scarring. All the four dermal filler injectables – Juvederm, Restylane, Radisse, and Sculptura – take up to a week to show results. The first 24-hours will see the water constituents of the fillers being replaced by the natural collagen in your face. It will take up to 3-4 months for the entire results to show.
The results of the dermal fillers last for a very long time. Juvederm and Restylane fillers last between 6 and 9 months; Radisse lasts between 9 and 15 months and Sculptura lasts up to 2 years.
