Dermal Fillers

What you require to know about dermal fillers

In cosmetic dentistry, various dental procedures are applied. A cosmetic dentist is usually burdened with having to provide the dental patient with the exact dental expectations of treatment. In that case, the dentist applies various different dental procedures in order to provide the expected outcome.

Dermal fillers are one of the most ordinary cosmetic procedures in improving the appearance of the face and the smile. At Philip Farzad, DDS dental clinic we use dermal fillers when other types of facial improvement like oral surgery are ineffective. Dermal fillers are well known for giving you a youthful skin and plump and smoother facial muscles. Visit us today and get the best out of dermal fillers in dentistry.

How do dermal fillers work?

The use of dermal fillers is aimed at restoring the volume of the face. As we age, our skin tends to sag portraying a poor appearance. Actually, by an early age of 25, most of us begin losing collagen which is responsible for keeping our skin rejuvenated and youthful. With the reduction of collagen and elastin in the body, the skin begins to wrinkle, and over time you can develop deep set lines that are hard to get rid of.

Dermal fillers are used to compensate the work of collagen and elastin and maintain youthful skin and appearance. The dermal filler is a gel that is injected inside the muscle to provide suppleness and rejuvenate the skin. Since the dermal fillers are prosthetic, they don’t last forever. Generally, the gel can last between 6 and 18 months after which you may need to get another dose for your skin to maintain its appearance.

Side effects of dermal fillers

It is very easy for people to confuse side effects to the general body reactions of dermal fillers. After treatment, there are bound to be some temporary side effects that will affect you. You should expect some redness and bruise after the procedure which shouldn’t last more than two days. Also, you may be affected by the injection causing redness, swelling, minimal pain, itching and bruising.

However, none of these issues lasts for long. Nonetheless, our dentist can provide any pain relief after the procedure where necessary. Within a week of getting the procedure, you should be free of any complications or body reactions.

Is the procedure painful?

Before getting dermal fillers, it is important to visit a professional medical specialist in order to get a consultation session. During the consultation, the medical professional will develop a treatment plan that is aimed at solving your dental issue. During the procedure, we ensure that you get some anesthetic cream on the facial muscles to reduce the discomfort experienced.

The cream also helps reduce the side effects of the needle injection making it easier to recover after the procedure. The cream should wear off about an hour after the dental procedure. At that time, you may experience some discomfort in the area which may require some pain relief.
