As we age, we will inevitably start to notice different signs of aging. Thankfully, when you notice these changes, you can use a non-surgical option called dermal fillers to treat a variety of skin concerns.
On the face, dermal fillers can help smooth smile lines, crow’s feet, lines around the eyes and mouth, and wrinkles. They can also reshape the nose, refine the jawline, and restore volume to the lips, cheeks, or chin. On the hands, dermal fillers reverse signs of aging by adding volume and fullness. Dermal fillers are not just popular for their results, they are used across the nation because they are safe and very low risk for most patients.
If you are considering the benefits of dermal fillers in Scottsdale, Dr. Stutman can help. We offer Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra as some of our non-surgical enhancement options. Connect with us today to discover how dermal fillers can help rejuvenate your skin.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved, body-safe, gel-based substances that are injected directly under the skin. These fillers create a smoother and fuller appearance by adding volume to skin cells.
Non-surgical fillers can treat many conditions and enhance many features. For instance, they can be used to:
- Treat facial wrinkles and skin folds
- Fill in fine lines, especially around the eyes and mouth
- Increase volume to sagging skin
- Improve facial symmetry
- Increase volume and fullness (lips, check, chin, under-eyes, jawline and back of hands)
- Non-surgically refine the nose, chin and jawline
- Correct acne scars and other skin texture issues
- Treat a loss of volume to the face caused by medical conditions such as HIV and AIDS
If you have further questions about how dermal fillers could help you address various skin concerns, Dr. Stutman and his Scottsdale team can offer knowledgeable guidance.
Deciding Which Filler is Right for You
During your initial consultation with our expert medical team, we will identify your skin concerns and determine which fillers could help treat them. For instance, depending on your situation, Dr. Stutman might recommend Juvéderm, Restylane, or Sculptra.
At your first appointment, it is important that you tell Dr. Stutman about any allergies, medications you are taking, or if you have a history of chronic health issues, bleeding, bruising, neurological issues, or skin problems. During this meeting, our Scottsdale staff will also review the side effects, risks, and recovery time associated with your chosen dermal filler, so that you are adequately prepared for your procedure.
The Dermal Filler Process Explained
To begin the dermal filler procedure, Dr. Stutman will first cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic. Then, your injection procedure will begin. The process itself is usually painless, taking a few minutes to an hour depending on the nature of your selected filler and how many treatment areas you are hoping to treat. Following your treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed again, and you may be given an ice pack to reduce swelling.
Scottsdale patients usually see the results of their dermal filler immediately. However, depending on the nature of the procedure and how many sessions are needed to achieve the desired results, the full results might take some time to materialize. Most people can immediately return to their daily routing after receiving dermal fillers, but your recovery time will depend on the areas targeted by the injections, the type of filler received, and your overall health. Dr. Stutman could offer a more accurate explanation of what to expect from dermal fillers during your initial consultation.
