Introduction to Dermal Fillers

The older we get, our bodies lose volume in the four major structural components of our face: skin, fat, muscle, and bone – all of which show the effects of aging – and Dermal Fillers may help. If you have noticed a retraction in your jawline, a descending nose or cheekbones, or a loss of skin elasticity, our skilled and knowledgeable providers in Cincinnati can use Dermal Fillers to help you fight the effects of aging and get you looking younger again.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin and are used to address many common concerns such as smoothing out deep under-eye circles, lifting cheekbones, increasing lip volume, or rejuvenation of your hands.

Composed of a variety of substances, some synthetic and some natural, the most common compound used in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance naturally found in our skin and plays a major role in keeping the skin hydrated and volumized.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to receiving Dermal Fillers in Cincinnati is contacting Elite Medicine and scheduling a consultation. During this time, you will be able to speak with Dr. Shelli Ridge or one of our skilled Aestheticians and address your concerns and desired outcome from this procedure. You will also be able to learn more about the Dermal Filler technique and get an accurate cost for your entire experience.

What to Expect on the Day of Dermal Fillers?

When you come in for your Dermal Fillers, our provider will begin by cleaning the area being treated and applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injection for a comfortable experience. Some filler products also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, which will also minimize discomfort.

Then, using a very thin needle, the filler will be injected into strategic areas to fill out the desired location(s) that was discussed during your consultation.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

After your treatment, you should be able to notice some immediate results from the filler injections. Mild bruising and swelling can occur in some patients, but these are temporary reactions and should subside over a few days. Although you can go back to your normal activities right after treatment, we highly encourage you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activities.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost in Cincinnati?

The cost of Dermal Fillers in Cincinnati will vary on multiple factors, such as which dermal filler is being used and how much filler is needed. When you come in for your consultation and discuss your cosmetic desires, you will be provided with the exact cost of your treatment.
