What are Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Dermal fillers and injectables are prescription gels injected into areas of the face and other parts of the body to diminish the signs of aging by adding volume to the skin and smoothing facial skin.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers and Injectables
Dermal fillers and injectables are effective at treating the signs of aging, and offer the following benefits:
- Adds volume to the face
- Diminishes sun-damaged skin
- Reduces visible scarring
- Little to no downtime or recovery
Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
When the signs of aging start to show themselves in the form of wrinkles and fine lines as well as sagging skin, dermal fillers and injectables may be the answer to correct these common skin imperfections.
How Do I Prepare for My Dermal Fillers and Injectables Treatments?
There is typically no preparation for dermal fillers except when receiving injections of fat. Much of the preparation involves the fat harvesting using liposuction. We recommend you have a consultation so that Dr. Core can evaluate your skin and make a recommendation on the best filler or injectable for your skin imperfections.
What is Involved in My Dermal Fillers and Injectables Treatments?
The process for each dermal filler and injectable may vary; however, the treatments are quick and can be done in the office often in less than an hour.
What to Expect After My Dermal Filler and Injectable Treatments
Most people return to their normal activities following their dermal filler and injectable treatments. With fat transfer and injection, there may be some downtime to recover from the fat harvesting, although it is minimal.
When Will I See the Results from My Dermal Filler and Injectable Treatments?
The results from dermal fillers may be somewhat noticeable and get better over time as any side effects diminish. Most results last from about six months to over a year depending on which treatment you receive.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers and Injectables Cost in Birmingham?
Dermal fillers and injectables vary with cost based on several factors, including which treatment you receive as well as the number of injections you need and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. We can discuss the cost with you in addition to payment and financing options through CareCredit®.
