Injectable filler procedures involve the injection of any number of artificial fillers into the face for aesthetic enhancement. There are many different products available with different indications and different lengths of duration. Some of the more common fillers today include fat injection, Sculptra, Radiesse, Artefill, and hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane. Injectable fillers can restore a more youthful appearance by filling in a variety of lines and wrinkles such as laugh lines, smile lines, crow's feet and other facial creases. They may also be used to add fullness to the lips, cheeks and other facial features, and to improve acne scars and other skin imperfections.
Who Are Dermal Fillers For?
Injectable fillers are appropriate for anyone seeking improvement for depressions, wrinkles, asymmetries, acne and other imperfections. Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Galitz performs injectable treatments in his office at Aventura Plastic Surgery of Aventura, Florida. The treatment takes just ten minutes to complete and involves the administration of a topical anesthetic followed by precise injection of the filler.
The Recovery After
The recovery after injectable filler treatment is immediate. Some minor discomfort, swelling, bruising or redness may result, but these side effects fade quickly. Patients are generally able to return to work the very same day and resume exercise and other strenuous activities the following day. With most injectables, the results are temporary and repeat treatments are needed to maintain the improvement. Complications are generally rare but may include the risk of poor placement. Because of this, it is important to have an experienced physician perform your injectable filler treatment.
