At Trident Dermatology in Charleston, SC, your team of five dermatologists is pleased to offer a wide range of cosmetic skin treatments. One of the most popular is dermal fillers. Injections of biocompatible serums, fillers, such as Juvederm, tighten sagging skin, add volume to specific areas and smooth lines and wrinkles. You'll love the results!
The signs of aging
We all experience them sooner or later. The skin gradually loses its youthful tautness, and lines form around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Cheeks and lips look thinner and less plump. While good hydration, a no-tobacco lifestyle, eating well, and avoiding excessive sun exposure help keep skin young, most people feel they need some help to stay refreshed and radiant.
Enter: dermal fillers
Healthline reports that annually, 2.4 million people get dermal fillers featuring a natural skin component called hyaluronic acid. Juvederm is the most well known, particularly for its effectiveness, ease of application and rapid recovery time.
At Trident Dermatology in Charleston, your dermatologist qualifies prospective filler patients with a review of medical history (including any allergies or skin sensitivities), skin exam and discussion of aesthetic goals. If Juvederm proves a good choice, the treatment is performed in one session lasting 15 to 60 minutes depending on the extent of the treatment.
The treatments are comfortable as the Juvederm serum contains lidocaine. As it is injected into your target areas--lips, cheeks, around the mouth and by the nose--you'll begin to see results. Your doctor may massage the injected areas to distribute the medication.
Afterward, you may experience redness, tenderness and itching. These will resolve, but be sure to avoid the sun, make-up and gym workouts for at least a day. You'll experience optimal results quickly, too. Re-treatments may be needed a year or so hence.
