What are dermal Fillers?

Filler injections (usually called dermal fillers) are often injected to replace lost facial volume. Faces often lack volume for a number of reasons, but weight loss and age are commonly to blame. The procedure works by injecting a liquid (the dermal filler) under the surface of the skin to fill in the areas that appear sunken or hollow. Fillers are a promising, minimally invasive alternative for Anchorage, AK patients wanting to even out fine lines, sagging skin, and/or wrinkles in order to create a more youthful appearance. They can also be incorporated into other aesthetic services to provide the benefits of a facelift without the need for surgery, the risk of scarring, and the required recovery that follows. There are many different types of fillers that may help meet the goals and expectations of each individual. To determine which injectable fillers are recommended for you, we invite you to visit Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic where our team can help you learn more.

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

Wrinkles and hollow areas are common signs of aging that only worsen over time. Dermal fillers help you achieve a more youthful appearance without resorting to invasive cosmetic surgery. Treatment can also be used to plump lips, fill in scars, and improve recessed areas on the face. Patients love working with Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic because we offer a wide variety of dermal fillers. During a consultation, we will help select the best fillers for your unique needs and goals.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates for dermal filler injections are men or women who have lines and wrinkles on their face that they would like to improve. Dermal filler treatments at Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic are also great if you want to improve the appearance of your face while avoiding the expense and recovery time of facial plastic surgery (like brow lifts, facelifts, eyelid lifts, or facial implants). Additionally, they may be beneficial if you have naturally thin lips or cheeks or age-related volume loss.

How do dermal fillers work?

Prior to your injection procedure, our team will meet with you to gain insight into your aesthetic goals and decide which product may best produce them. At the time of the actual procedure, we will use numbing cream as a local anesthetic to make the injections as pain-free as possible. Injectable fillers are done as an in-office procedure in a very short amount of time. Because of the anesthetic, the process is usually very tolerable and does not require downtime. You should expect bruising and swelling immediately after, but these symptoms should fade away within a few short days. Typical results can last from three months to a year, depending on the product and placement of the injection. Touch-ups may be needed to maintain results.

Dermal Fillers FAQ

How much do dermal fillers cost?
Your cost for a dermal filler treatment will vary depending on the type used and the amount used. In your consultation, we will create a treatment plan that fits your goals. After this, your injector will be able to provide you with an estimated cost for your treatment, which will include any specials we have.

How do I know which dermal filler is right for me?
The dermal filler used on you will depend on which area(s) is being treated as well as your desired outcome. Based on whether you would like to improve fine lines or you want to create fuller lips, your injector will ask about your goals before determining the filler or fillers that will deliver better results. With so many different dermal fillers, it may be overwhelming to select which is the best for your needs, so our team of aesthetic professionals helps to make sure you get your best results.

What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
A wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX, addresses dynamic wrinkles (especially in the forehead and in the corners of the eyes) by limiting the movement of the underlying muscles. Dermal fillers restore volume to your face to fill in lines, wrinkles, and certain types of scars. Dermal fillers may also be used to create fuller cheeks and lips as well as to rejuvenate the hands.

How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will be based on what brand(s) is used and where it is placed. For some people, results may be visible for a year, whereas others may want another treatment after a few months. Touch-up injections are available at Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic in order to sustain your improvements.

What areas of my face can be treated with dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers can improve signs of aging in your face by either restoring volume or smoothing static lines. Dermal fillers can be injected into marionette, parentheses, and corner lines near your nose and mouth. Additionally, they can temporarily restore volume to your cheeks and lips.
