When it comes to the story of getting older, wrinkles, deep lines, crow’s feet, whatever you wish to call them, are just a fraction of the overall narrative. As we age, our faces lose some volume in multiple areas including our forehead, cheeks, jawline, and even the temples area. Often times, a procedure such as a facelift is considered too invasive to many of our patients when looking to restore their youthful, bright appearance. That is why facial fillers have become so popular among the residents of Atlanta that are looking for a non-surgical option to rejuvenate their face and take years off with a simple procedure.
Facial fillers, when administered professionally by a respected doctor such as Dr. Damion Rockwell, can accomplish incredible outcomes for many of our patients. If you would look a consultation, please give the office a call and we would be happy to explain the wonders and ease of receiving a facial filler procedure.
No matter who are, the effects of aging will find you. This is a truth we all have to come to terms with at some point in our lives. But we do not have to let it defeat us! As we age, our skin becomes thinner and begins to look less smooth and full than it did in times past. Thankfully, both men and women see dramatic improvements from our facial filler procedures. Facial fillers are both safe and effective and are designed to treat a variety of issues that have us feeling older than we should. Patients as young as 30 years old have come in and had problem areas taken care to improve the overall aesthetic of their face. From softening the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth (the nasolabial folds) or increasing the volume of their cheeks, there is a facial filler application for all of our patients.
Facial Fillers, sometimes called Dermal Fillers, are varied depending on the problem area that is treated. Most facial fillers these days use hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance that is found inside our bodies. Because of this, we can avoid certain pitfalls and delays such as allergy testing before your treatment, because it is not made using animal sources. When applying facial fillers to an area that requires a heavier make-up, Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is used, which is naturally found in your bones.
In most cases, you will be in and out of our office in 30 minutes. Many facial filler injections do not take much time at all. After we have spoken with you and created a plan to meet your cosmetic needs, we will map the points on your face for the injections to achieve the greatest success. After the injections have been administered, an ice pack will be all you need in the event that you experience mild discomfort from the injection areas. Typical reactions to the procedure can include swelling, redness, and the occasional minor bruising. If you are receiving a facial filler procedure for an important event, we recommend planning your procedure accordingly to avoid any of the side effects still affecting you before your big day. Give us a call and we’d be happy to discuss with you further how facial fillers can help you look your best!
