Looking younger doesn’t have to take over your life. In as little as one treatment with dermal fillers at The Refinery, you can make significant, positive changes to your appearance without the pain and expense of surgery.
At The Refinery, our clinically-trained and board-certified aesthetic professionals will meet all of your beauty needs and help you recapture the younger, healthier look you desire. Our treatments including dermal fillers are among the many tools available to you at our clinic in Georgetown, Texas. Dermal fillers are among the most effective non-surgical techniques to preserve your beauty for up to several years per treatment.
Dermal fillers are a variety of medical-grade compounds that can be injected under the skin to improve and enhance your skin’s natural vibrance. As our skin ages, it can lose the fullness and resilience it once had. But dermal fillers can bring it back by smoothing and tightening skin, and by filling in parts of your face that have lost their youthful fullness. Fillers most commonly fall into two categories of materials: naturally occurring compounds and biosynthetic polymers.
Each substance has its advantages and disadvantages that can be utilized based on each patient’s needs and desired results. During your consultation at The Refinery, we’ll talk through the pros and cons of each option to help you choose the one that best fits your condition and lifestyle.
Treatments including dermal fillers are considered very safe and effective. They also typically only require a light, topical anesthetic, so there is almost no risk of complications that often accompany heavier sedation.
Overall, ideal candidates are in good health and don’t have any major medical concerns (cancer, heart disease, or diabetes). They don’t have any acute sickness or infection, especially skin-related. Also, the best candidates have realistic expectations for their results and are committed to an ongoing skincare regimen that includes protection from the sun. While we will thoroughly consider your medical history, we always recommend you consult with your primary care physician before undergoing any elective treatment.
Dermal fillers can work wonders at reducing or eliminating the signs of aging by treating the following conditions:
At The Refinery, we know that every person’s story is as unique as their body. We’ll take all the time you need to listen closely to your concerns about your appearance and evaluate your current condition and medical history — all so we can work together to craft a personalized treatment plan that’s just right for you.
The procedure for a dermal filler treatment is relatively simple and can usually be completed in 30 minutes to an hour. Your exact treatment may vary according to your treatment plan.
On the day of your procedure, you’ll be welcomed into one of our comfortable treatment rooms, and your skin will be cleaned and soothed. A mild anesthetic is then typically applied to the targeted skin — either topically or by injection — and you’ll be allowed to rest while it takes effect.
A syringe is prepared with the dermal filler compound you selected. Your aesthetic professional will then inject the filler under your skin in the targeted area. Usually, they’ll make several injections around the area to ensure balanced, natural-looking results.
Once your treatment is complete, you will be given detailed aftercare instructions and will be sent home to rest. Most patients experience some redness and mild tenderness in the treated area for the first day or two. Severe discomfort is very rare as most patients can manage any pain with a cold compress or over-the-counter medication.
While you should avoid strenuous physical activity for the first 48 hours, you should be able to resume your normal daily routine immediately. Depending on the scope of your treatment, you may notice that the contours of your treated skin change during the first week of your recovery. This is normal as the dermal filler settles and your body adjusts to its presence. In general, recovery is complete in one to two weeks, depending on the type of filler used and the scope of your treatment.
After your recovery, you should notice a visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Also, the fillers will beautifully enhance your best features per your treatment plan. The duration of your results will depend on the type of filler used, and multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve ideal results in some cases. A significant factor in realizing long-lasting results will be your diligence in following your prescribed skincare routine.
