Dermal fillers are very popular procedures with minimal downtime. They are incredibly versatile, and we use them to add support, add volume, or diminish lines or folds. Most adults in their thirties and beyond are good candidates for dermal fillers. Some people ask, "Isn't thirty too young?" In all honesty, studies show that the face starts losing bony and soft-tissue support in our twenties. This loss progresses at a faster rate as each decade passes. This is why it is generally easy to tell how many decades someone has, just by looking. It is also worth noting that the closer you are to your ideal appearance, the easier it is to restore and maintain.
What about younger adults in their twenties? Twenty-somethings are increasingly pursuing these treatments. We can use dermal fillers in this age group, even if they don't show any signs of aging, if they wish to enhance certain features (eg: lips, cheeks, chin, jawline).
Results are immediate, with minimal downtime. Discomfort, swelling, and bruising, if present, typically last a few days. Depending on the amount of work to do, the dermal filler procedure may be spaced over several appointments. Each treatment will build on the previous treatment. You will be instructed to avoid alcohol, workouts, heat and sun for 24 hours, and your side effects will typically disappear in a few days.
