Many people tend to mix the use of botox with dermal filters. However, they are substantially different.
When you are looking for adding more volume or simply smoothing out your laugh lines, increasing the volume of your thin lips, smoothing the vertical lines that keep forming around their edges, augmenting or reshaping your cheeks, or fill out those depressions under your eyes, then you’re looking for a dermal filler treatment in Birmingham.
How do dermal filler treatments in Birmingham work?
Simply put, dermal fillers, which can be either synthetic or naturally-derived, are injected directly into the area of your skin that you’re looking to treat. Depending on the treatment that you choose, the effects can last from 6 months up to 5 years.
Unlike dermal fillers, Botox is injected around the wrinkles and the forehead. The main goal with Botox is to stop the muscle movements that result in wrinkles. As you can see, even though both treatments require injections, the results and effects will be substantially different.
Even though you can choose between naturally-derived dermal fillers or synthetic ones, we believe that the best option is the first one. Even though the effects will last less time, they have a much smaller risk of causing you an allergic reaction.
Although it’s not a common situation, you need to be aware of the risks as well as of the effects before you actually proceed to a dermal filler treatment in Birmingham.
One of the main advantages of using naturally-derived (Hyaluronic Acid) dermal fillers is the fact that the results aren’t permanent. In case there is a problem with your treatment, it will be easier to fix.
The steps you will need to take to get your dermal filler treatment in Birmingham
When you decide that you want to do a dermal filler treatment in Birmingham, you will need to have an initial consultation with a doctor where he will check your medical history as well as if you are a safe candidate for this treatment. If you are, you can then schedule the treatment, which takes about 1 hour to complete. You will need to be applied with a topical anesthetic.
Even though the recovery can vary from person to person, it usually takes 48 for the full recovery. On the first 24 hours, you may experience some bruising or swelling, as well as you’ll be more sensitive.
As soon as the treatment is completed, you’ll be able to see the results.
