Filler injections are becoming extremely popular among our patients in Virginia Beach. Patients rave about the results that they are getting without having to go under the knife. One of the main benefits to this type of treatment is its ability to offer significant anti-aging results with little complications or downtime. In fact, many patients have the procedure performed over a break and are able to return to their activities immediately after their treatment.
Before undergoing any type of procedure, you should have a complete understanding of what is involved and what materials are used in the treatment. Filler injections have different formulations and brand names with somewhat different goals and results that are obtainable.
Types of Filler Injections
Most facial fillers involve the injection of a gel containing an active ingredient like hyaluronic acid. Filler treatments do not normally involve the injection of foreign substances and are very well-tolerated by the body with a low incidence of side effects. In most cases, we are simply replenishing your face with naturally-occurring materials that tend to become depleted due to the aging process. This also means that you will obtain results that are very soft and natural. You will simply look like a younger version of yourself.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that becomes depleted with age, it makes a perfect active ingredient for a filler injection. This substance is able to attract and bind many times its own weight in water molecules, which has a plumping effect upon the skin. Its age-related depletion leads to thinner skin that is more susceptible to the formation of lines and wrinkles. An injection with this material will help your facial skin become more hydrated and smooth.
Filler Injection Results
Our patients in Virginia Beach love the way that they notice immediate results after their injections. You should also see continual improvement in the days and weeks following the treatment. Eventually, you will require additional injections to maintain your rejuvenated look.
