Five Facts About Dermal Fillers
Now more than ever, dermal fillers are experiencing a tremendous surge in popularity. In this article, we will discuss five important facts everyone should know before undergoing dermal fillers.
Who Injects Your Dermal Fillers Makes a Difference
Anyone in the Birmingham, MI area who is considering dermal fillers is urged to only have them injected by a licensed and experienced medical professional, in a sterile, clinical environment such as a medical spa.
While there are technically “do-it-yourself” dermal fillers available on the market, at-home dermal fillers can result in severe pain, disfigurement, and even death. And, dermal fillers injected by inexperienced medical providers – or even worse at a Botox Party, mall or salon – can result in uneven results, infection, nerve damage, facial paralysis, and worse.
Dermal filler patients who come to AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI are in the hands of licensed and experienced injectors – so they will achieve beautiful, even, results without the risks and dangerous side effects of untrained injectors.
Dermal Fillers Can Prevent New Lines from Forming
The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery recently reported a significant increase in the number of dermal filler patients younger than 30 years old.
This is because it is the opinion of many dermatologists that beginning dermal fillers at a young age may have long-term benefits. It is believed that starting with small amounts of dermal fillers early on may result in a smoother aging process and the development of fewer wrinkles.
Different Dermal Fillers do Different Things
Though the majority of dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, the particle size of each individual filler will inform its results. For example, Restylane Lyft, which has a larger particle size, is injected to rebuild larger areas such as thinning cheek bones.
Restylane Silk, on the other hand, has a smaller particle size, and as such, is more effective for plumping delicate areas like lips, and treating fine lines. Dr. Ali and his nurse injectors work closely with each patient at AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI to determine which type of filler will best meet their individual appearance goals.
If a Dermal Filler Price Sounds “Too Good to Be True” It Is
Anyone considering dermal fillers should beware of any advertised dermal filler that seems too good to be true from a financial standpoint.
Oftentimes, such bargain-basement dermal fillers are created in unhygienic conditions that can result in serious health hazards. Additionally, cheap dermal fillers are often made with silicone and other harmful chemicals that the body cannot naturally absorb, leading to any number of hazardous side effects.
At Birmingham, MI’s AMAE Med Spa, we strike the perfect balance of providing care to our dermal filler patients that is safe, effective, and affordable. And remember, financing options are available!
Some People Should NOT Get Dermal Fillers
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not advised to undergo dermal fillers. Additionally, individuals suffering from a sinus infection should also avoid dermal fillers, as any infection near the treatment area could potentially spread to the injection sight.
It is also ill-advised to undergo dermal fillers for at least a week before dental treatments such as teeth cleaning. Dental procedures such as these require the application of pressure to the face that could theoretically cause dermal fillers to be misplaced.
