Safe, immediate results
At Flawless Medical Spa in East Greenwich, RI, we offer a variety of dermal fillers for patients interested in rejuvenating their skin without undergoing aggressive surgical procedures. Dermal fillers restore lost volume, and immediately improve the appearance of fine lines, facial folds, and wrinkles. Depending on the type of filler used, the results can last from a few months to a few years.
How it works
As we age, our skin produces less collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Many dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural ingredient that replenishes the skin and creates a radiant, youthful appearance. There are several types of dermal fillers, and you can choose synthetic or natural, with absorbable or non-absorbable options. Each variation will improve the appearance of aging skin.
A small amount of the dermal filler is injected into the soft tissue under the skin. The filler smooths out wrinkles, reducing their appearance, while at the same time improving definition and hydrating your skin. The depth and number of injections needed will depend on the type of filler you choose, and the area of your skin being treated.
The effects of most fillers will last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on the area and the type of filler. The body will gradually absorb most dermal fillers, so routine touch-up treatments are needed to maintain your results. Your Flawless clinician will help you understand what to expect from the different options, and create a plan for you based on the effects you wish to achieve.
What to expect
During a dermal filler treatment, there is minimal pain involved. After treatment, you can resume normal activities immediately, although strenuous activities should be avoided for a few days.
