Several Options for Dermal Fillers
What worked well for your best friend, sister-in-law, or a stranger on the internet might not be the best fit for you, so you shouldn’t necessarily be treated the same way. Dr. Cohen understands that each of his patients is unique, and his filler treatments are a reflection of that. Tired of thin lips or wrinkly folds around your mouth? Fillers can help! Individuals interested in the treatment undergo a consultation with Dr. Cohen’s staff before receiving injections. During that time, patients can see before-and-after photos to gain a better understanding of their potential results.
Dr. Cohen will also talk with you about what is realistic and best for your facial features. It’s important to keep in mind that fillers are not like full-fledged surgery. Instead, they focus on working with the skin you already have to reveal amazing results. Your particulars goals will determine exactly which injections will be used and where they will be placed. You can receive a single injection or multiple fillers in multiple spots.
No matter which path you choose, you can trust that Dr. Cohen has your best interests at heart. Keep in mind that his entire professional career has been built around taking care of mouths, so expanding that care to the outside of your mouth is a natural extension of his expertise.
Dermal injection procedures are relatively short. In fact, you can book an appointment over your lunch hour and, if necessary, be back to work in the afternoon. Although fillers are not necessarily painful, Dr. Cohen utilizes the latest techniques to make the process as painless and comfortable as possible.
How Do Fillers Work?
The treatment includes injection with an ultra-fine needle or blunt-tipped cannula. For the average patient who has all of the severe wrinkles around the mouth or lips corrected less than half a tablespoon of Restylane Silk will be used. Once injected, Dr. Cohen might also gently massage the surrounding area to make sure the product is evenly distributed for a smooth appearance. Once you are injected, you’ll instantly see some change, but final results will be visible a week or so after your appointment. Depending on the approach and the filler used, your results can last for months — something to really smile about!
The facts speak for themselves. Restylane® reports that 98 percent of users see visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after an injection. Another 77 percent still report visible improvement six months later. In general, dermal fillers are considered safe, but as with any cosmetic treatment, it’s important that you are particular and selective when choosing the professional to administer your injections.
Dr. Cohen uses only quality, tested, and FDA-approved dermal fillers and equipment. Restylane®, in particular, replaces the hyaluronic acid that disappears from skin with time, so it’s a great option whether you’re looking to define your Cupid’s bow, develop lip symmetry, or simply amplify your pout. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, your body is already used to it and will accept the injection with ease.
