Your cheeks look thinner and sunken. Your lips have lost their plumpness. You don’t feel ready for a facelift. Dermal fillers in Annapolis, MD from Dr. Namita Murthy can solve these age-related issues and so much more.
As we age, our faces start to lose the fat below the surface. Normally we don’t want extra fat, but the fat in our faces is what gives us our youthful appearance.
When you are young, your cheeks are rounder, your lips are fuller, and the overall appearance is of a smooth face with no wrinkles. There are several solutions that can help us look younger. Dermal fillers are a popular and safe answer without the need for surgery or any downtime. Dermal fillers, or soft tissue filters, are aesthetic treatments injected under your skin’s surface to add volume and fullness that is often lost as we get older.
They are made from various substances including hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our tissues; calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral-like compound found in our bones; and poly-L lactic acid, a synthetic material that is biodegradable that stimulates the production of collagen. Some of these materials last longer than others; some are natural, and some are artificial, but all are safe in the hands of a specially trained cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Murthy. If you are looking for dermal fillers in Annapolis, Dr. Murthy can guide you on the right product for the appearance you want.
Dermal fillers can smooth existing wrinkles and lines removing some of the signs of aging from your face.
They can also plump up your cheeks and lips. If your eyes are showing deep circles underneath, dermal fillers can reduce them as well. For skin that has become stretched and has lost some of the proteins under the skin that provide structure and volume, dermal fillers can rejuvenate your appearance. If you are in Annapolis, dermal fillers are available from Dr. Murthy who has a focus on natural results to help you feel more refreshed and confident.
When you meet with Dr. Namita Murthy, the two of you will discuss your aesthetic goals. Although most soft tissue fillers are not permanent solutions, you may find them adequate to restore your youthful look.
Dr. Murthy will examine your face and skin and discuss the anticipated results of dermal injections. She may discuss other treatments that could be better matched for the improvements you want. Dermal fillers in Annapolis, MD are excellent solutions for making your face smoother and giving it more fullness. If you need more than what dermal fillers can provide, a facelift, neck lift, fat grafting, and cheek implants may be the fit for your concerns. These surgical options also reduce or eliminate the need for frequent follow-up treatments.
Prior to any treatment, Dr. Murthy will analyze your face and skin tone and discuss your goals. Anesthetic cream or local anesthesia may be used. Dr. Murthy will use a small needle to inject the dermal filler into the areas to be treated. The whole procedure takes only a few minutes, longer if there are multiple areas being filled. Dr. Murthy will massage the skin and apply more filler if needed.
You will probably see the results from your dermal filler treatment immediately. Some filler products will need a bit more time to show results if they are rebuilding collagen.
You may want to avoid strenuous activity for a day or two, but your normal activities can be resumed right after treatment. You may have a little bruising and swelling but these effects will subside quickly. The length of time that the results will last depends heavily on what part of your face is treated and which product you use. If the product is denser and is injected deeply, the results will usually last longer. Some will last half a year or more. Hyaluronic acid filler tends to break down more quickly which makes it ideal if you just want to try out dermal fillers. You can have additional treatments and many patients will return every six months or so.
With a dermal filler treatment, your face will look rejuvenated and more youthful. Lines and wrinkles will be lessened. They are the one cosmetic treatment that shows improvement in your face immediately. Depending on what part of your face is treated, you may notice that your cheeks are fuller, or your lips are plumper. In Annapolis, dermal fillers provided by Dr. Namita Murthy can help you regain the youthful, healthy appearance you had years ago.
