5 Benefits of Dermal Fillers

There’s a reason that dermal fillers are taking the cosmetic industry by storm. Due to stress, hormones, genetics, sun exposure, and gravity, aging signs can start appearing on our faces as early as our twenties. Fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and volume loss can be significantly reduced in as easy as a 15-minute session with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon.

Austin based eyelid and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Malena Amato uses her years of experience to help her patients look and feel their absolute best. Dr. Amato is committed to getting to know her patients’ cosmetic, medical, and personal goals. She can use dermal fillers to treat specific blemishes such as sunken eyelids, fine lines, wrinkles, volume loss, or she can even incorporate them into a comprehensive liquid facelift.

Here are five reasons to consider dermal fillers with Dr. Amato:

1. Immediate and Visible Results

Once you undergo a filler injection, the improvement in your facial contours become evident immediately. You don’t have to wait to enjoy the benefits of the treatment as you would with other, more invasive procedures. Once the dermal fillers are injected into the desired area, it immediately adds volume and smooths out wrinkles and creases in your skin. As the filler settles under the skin, the full effects become visible in a matter of days.

2. No Recovery or Downtime

Depending on the number of injections at your appointment, a dermal filler treatment can be as quick as 15 minutes. You can literally have the procedure done during your lunch break and then get back to your normal routine. This non-invasive procedure doesn’t require you to take time off of work because there’s no surgery involved, which also means no post-operation scarring or healing to deal with.

There might be slight swelling just after the injections, but this subsides over the next couple of days as the gel settles under the skin.

3. Minimal Risk

Dermal fillers carry the risk of redness, swelling, and mild bruising at the injection sites. These are side effects that gradually disappear over a few days and can be remedied with makeup. Another risk is facial asymmetry, where one side of the face can appear slightly different from the other. This risk is tied to the expertise and skill level of the person performing the dermal filler injections. That’s why it is so important to find a board-certified plastic surgeon to conduct your injections like Dr. Amato, who is an expert in her field and also takes her patients’ safety and needs into serious consideration.

4. Long-Lasting Results

How long your procedure’s effects last depends on the type of dermal filler used, the area treated, and the patient. Dr. Amato uses a natural dermal filler composed of Hyaluronic acid, a natural protein found in the skin. Fillers generally last anywhere from 6-12 months.

5. Confidence Boost

Dermal fillers can improve your appearance in a very subtle way. Your facial contours will be sharper, healthier, and your skin smooth and supple. In the hands of an experienced facial plastic surgeon, you can achieve natural and amazing results.
