Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
If you are in good health and have any of the following skin conditions, you might be an ideal candidate for an injectable dermal filler treatment:
- Sagging skin and sunken hollows in your cheeks
- Wrinkles, creases, folds, or lines anywhere on the face
- Crow’s feet, laugh lines, smile or frown lines at the corners of your eyes
- Deep folds or creases running from the nose to the corners of your mouth
- Thin, brittle, flat, or undefined lips
- Vertical lines surrounding the lips or “smoker’s lines”
- Acne scars
How Should I Prepare for an Injectable Dermal Filler Treatment?
You will require little to no preparation before your dermal filler injections, however, you must inform Dr. Ekstrom of any medications you are taking or conditions you may have. She may recommend that you suspend taking certain medications, particularly those that affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, NSAIDs, or blood thinners. Also inform Dr. Ekstrom if you take medications that affect your immune system, or if you suffer from any type of skin reaction or irritation, such as cold sores, cysts, pimples, rashes, hives, or an infection. Treatment may have to be delayed until any irritation or infection has passed.
How Are Dermal Fillers Administered?
Dermal fillers are injections that are administered using a very fine-gauge needle. You may request a topical anesthetic to prevent any discomfort during your treatment. To eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, the filler is delivered to the outermost layers of skin, while delivery to the deep, innermost layers diminishes deeper folds and creases. The filler is carefully and precisely injected into the specific areas as warranted by each. Some patients experience a stinging sensation during the procedure and may experience some discomfort following it, but there is no recovery period required and you may continue your normal activities immediately.
