Dermal fillers were the second most popular medical spa treatments of 2014, up 3 percent from the previous year. Men and women of all ages enjoy the benefits of dermal fillers for a range of cosmetic purposes for three particular reasons.
1. Quick Appointment Time
Dermal fillers are known as a “lunchtime” procedure, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most dermal filler appointments take less than an hour and can be as quick as 15 minutes. The short appointment duration makes dermal fillers the perfect cosmetic treatment for busy professionals.
2. Little to No Downtime
Dermal fillers begin to work immediately, and require minimal downtime. Most patients can simply return back to their normal schedule immediately following their appointment, whether that means going back into the office, heading to social events, or hitting the gym. You may experience mild bruising or swelling around the injection site, but this should clear up within the first couple of days. The risk of adverse effects is minimized when you take care to only use professional medical aestheticians for your treatment.
3. Customizable Results
Dermal fillers can be used to create a wide range of results, especially when combined with additional treatments. Most commonly, dermal fillers are used in conjunction with BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat signs of facial aging more effectively. However, fillers can also be used in combination with other med spa rejuvenation treatments, such as chemical peels and facials, to create more balanced facial contours and maintain a youthful look for longer.
