Dermal Fillers In Mishawaka

prp injections

As you age, it is natural to see a decrease in skin elasticity and collagen production. However, you may wish to restore your facial structure and skin from younger days. Soft tissue fillers, or deeper dermal fillers, are an excellent solution for smoothing facial lines and wrinkles, restoring volume, and rejuvenating your facial appearance.

The Centre, P.C. in Mishawaka offers many dermal fillers that have long-lasting results for our patients across the Michiana region. The injections utilize a gel substance, hyaluronic acid, CHHA (bone graft), or a fat matrix to replace lost volume due to bone resorption, loss of fat in the face, and laxity of facial ligaments. Consider dermal fillers if you are ready to reverse signs of aging and restore your confidence.

Cosmetic Concerns Dermal Fillers Could Treat

Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for restoring volume and smoothing expression lines in your face. This non-surgical option can help achieve lifted, smooth skin under the eyes, and add contour to your cheekbones, jawline, and other facial features.

Dermal filler injections combat visible aging signs by restoring volume. Some additional cosmetic goals the treatment could achieve include:

Types of Dermal Fillers at Our Medical Spa

There are several types of dermal fillers available at our clinic that each target different cosmetic concerns. Due to different substances in specific dermal fillers, the treatments vary in longevity of results, texture, and volume density. A highly skilled and licensed professional can help choose the best dermal filler option for your specific cosmetic concern. The Centre, P.C. offers:

Our advanced practice injectors have helped patients in Mishawaka, Elkhart, South Bend, and throughout Indiana and surrounding states assess their unique needs and choose an injection that fulfills their goals. Maintaining results requires additional treatment sessions once initial enhancements wear off, and the time frame between treatments will also depend upon the specific dermal filler used.

Soft Tissue Filler Injection Process

The dermal fillers offered at Centre Yourself Medical Rejuvenation Spa can be easily administered by one of our Certified Medical Aesthetic Practitioners. These fillers provide consistent results which will last for a significant period of time.

When soft tissue fillers are injected, a numbing cream is usually placed on the area of the injection to ensure your comfort. Then, using a small needle or blunt cannula, the soft tissue filler is injected into problem areas using a keen understanding of anatomy and an eye for cosmesis. Some mild bruising, burning, and stinging is normal and will subside quickly.

Soft tissue fillers are commonly used in the smile lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, otherwise known as nasolabial folds. Another common injection site is in the fine lines which form on the upper lip, otherwise known as vertical lip lines.

Possible Risks Associated with Dermal Fillers

After a dermal filler treatment, there are a few common side effects that typically subside within two weeks. These include numbness, bruising, redness, and itching at injection sites. More severe side effects rarely occur but include allergic reactions, scarring, infection of injection sites, and vascular occlusion which requires immediate medical attention.

On very rare occasions, a patient may experience long-term swelling of the face due to an allergic reaction or delayed hypersensitivity, both treated with steroids and antibiotics. There is also a risk of vascular occlusion, or the blockage of a blood vessel, usually with a clot.

Pretreatment for Dermal Filler Injectables

Avoid ASA (aspirin), ibuprofen, alcohol, fish oil, and flax seed oil seven days prior to injections in order to minimize bruising. Our professional, licensed injectors recommend taking Arnica sublingual five days prior to the appointment. This can be purchased over the counter at a health food store or pharmacy.
