How to Prepare for Dermal Fillers

As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume. If you want to rejuvenate your appearance and achieve a plump and hydrated complexion with little to no downtime, look no further than dermal fillers.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that is injected into areas of the face to restore volume and give you a plump and youthful look. Dr. Lawton and her team offer the Juvéderm® collection of dermal fillers because they are customizable and can offer fantastic results for patients. 

The Juvéderm® collection of dermal fillers contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in the body and helps the skin stay elastic and hydrated, giving you a refreshed and youthful glow.

How to Prepare for Dermal Fillers

In preparation for dermal fillers, you should refrain from taking supplements and medications that can increase your likelihood of bruising. This includes fish oil, vitamin E, aspirin, and ibuprofen. Alcohol may also increase your chances of bruising after treatment.

You should not schedule dental work two weeks before your appointment or within the first two weeks of recovery. You should also avoid smoking before and after your appointment. During your consultation, Dr. Lawton can answer any questions you may have regarding preparation for your treatment.

What are the Benefits of Juvéderm® Dermal Fillers?

Dr. Lawton chooses to offer the Juvéderm® collection of dermal fillers because she believes they provide the best results for her patients. Each dermal filler in the Juvéderm® collection uses a formula designed to enhance specific areas of the face and restore a youthful look. Some of the benefits of dermal fillers can include:

  • Restored volume to areas of the face 
  • Plump lips
  • More defined facial features
  • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother skin
  • Immediate results 

Dr. Lawton will help you choose which dermal fillers from the Juvéderm® line best suit your needs and goals. During your consultation, she will help you develop a customized treatment plan.

How Long do Juvéderm® Dermal Fillers Last?

Juvéderm® dermal fillers are long-lasting, but their longevity will depend on the thickness of the formula used and the area where you receive treatment. Fillers in the lips and around the mouth usually have a shorter lifespan than fillers in areas like the cheeks. 

Juvéderm® dermal fillers typically last between six and twelve months or even up to eighteen months with proper care. You can extend the results of your facial fillers by following a good skincare routine and practicing adequate sun protection.
