Our bodies naturally contain hyaluronic acid, but these natural stores deplete as we age. The result is a loss of shape and firmness. For some patients, the effects can be devastating, deeply impacting self-esteem. By re-introducing hyaluronic acid into the body in the form of dermal fillers, Dr. Kamani has helped thousands of patients to reshape and restructures areas of their face, impacted by the loss of hyaluronic acid.
It’s important to remember that dermal filler injections don’t last forever. Over time, our bodies break down the replacement filler, just as it does with its natural stores. Moreover, dermal fillers behave a bit differently for everyone. Factors like treatment areas, activity levels, and metabolism all have an impact. However, there are a few techniques that can help prolong the results of treatment.
1) Protect the Area
Immediately after treatment, try to avoid applying pressure to the area. This is not the time to squish your face into scuba gear or schedule a relaxing facial massage. Give the filler time to settle into place. At most, it should take two weeks.
2) Try Not to Suck
Lips are often carefully mapped and injected to create an ideal shape. Activities like sucking a straw or enjoying a hot drink before the filler is settled can cause the gel to migrate, ruining careful work.
3) Hydrate Well
Dermal fillers draw in a lot of water—they are hydrophilic. Staying well-hydrated is an easy, healthy solution that can make dermal fillers look softer and feel more natural.
4) Care for Skin
Maintain optimal skin health with quality products that protect the skin and fight free radicals. If possible, try to reduce negative lifestyle factors that stress the skin, like smoking and drinking. Keeping skin well-protected and nourished can help prolong the lifespan of a treatment.
5) Schedule Touch Ups
A little support goes a long way. Dr. Kamani can advise on an ideal routine to keep skin looking fuller and fresher. Often, all that’s required is a little touch-up, although the timing varies depending on the treatment area.
