Dermal fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid-based gels that instantly add volume to improve age-related volume loss. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the skin cells to keep the skin hydrated and plump. It also revitalizes the skin’s outer layer and increases its strength and elasticity.
With age, hyaluronic production declines, resulting in structure and volume loss. Moreover, the collagen and fat pads in the face diminish, leaving wrinkles and deep folds in their place.
Dermal fillers help turn back the hands of time by restoring lost volume and shape and lifting sagging skin. They also plump thin lips, soften deep-set facial lines, reduce wrinkles around the smile, lift the corners of the mouth, reconstruct facial contour deformities, and improve the appearance of scars.
Most patients report a significant improvement immediately after treatment, with results lasting up to two years.
At Elements Dental Spa, Dr. Luong uses dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation in these areas:
Before treatment begins, you will have a consultation with Dr. Luong to discuss your aesthetic goals. She will review your medical and prescription histories, explain your treatment options, and discuss the results you can expect.
You should notice the results immediately. You may feel some discomfort, but if you do, it will be mild and only last a few days. Occasionally people experience mild bruising, redness, or itching.
The results from dermal fillers last 6 to 24 months, depending on the product used, the target areas, and each patient. You can repeat treatment to maintain the results.
Dentists are the true facial specialists with years of extensive training and intimate knowledge and understanding of the oral and facial anatomy, including blood vessels, muscles, bones, and nerves.
They are far more familiar with the facial muscle expression dynamics than any other dermal filler provider and have an eye for detail. That means they know exactly how to administer your injectables to achieve the most balanced and natural results.
Dentists are best-equipped to deliver dermal filler injections because they inject anesthetics routinely and have the training and experience to allow for quick, comfortable, and relatively painless treatments. Other providers use only topical anesthetics, while dentists can deliver dental anesthesia when needed to minimize patient discomfort.
It just makes sense to choose a dentist you already know and trust for dermal fillers rather than an impersonal medical spa. We invite you to talk to Dr. Luong about the procedure and how she can help you restore your youthful, vibrant appearance. With her extensive skill, training, and expertise, you can always trust that you will enjoy the most comfortable treatments with the best possible results!
