Why are Dermal Fillers Called a “Liquid Facelift”?

There’s a reason dermal fillers are so popular for rejuvenating aging skin. Dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm®, which are available at our Wilmington cosmetic surgery center, can help improve the tone, texture, and appearance of your face. As we age our skin tends to wrinkle, thin, and in some places, like the cheeks and around the eyes, become hollow looking. When doctors apply dermal fillers the improvement can be quite dramatic. It’s no wonder some people refer to dermal fillers as a “liquid facelift.”

Unlike a facelift which requires downtime for recovery and does not offer immediate results, dermal fillers can be applied during one visit (or multiple visits for deeper folds and lines) and the results can be obvious nearly immediately. Fillers cannot help with excess sagging skin, however, they can plump up mildly sagging skin for a more youthful appearance. Unlike a facelift, patients will need to visit Dr. Irgau every 6 months for repeated injections and in some cases additional treatments such as Botox® may be recommended to create your desired results.

What Happens During an Appointment?
During a procedure Dr. Irgau will ask you to share your desired results and then will asses your facial features to determine where filler should be injected. Typically your face will be marked to guide Dr. Irgau during the injections. After your face has been cleaned, Dr. Irgau will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the site, unless the dermal filler already includes the anesthetic in the mixture. Typically the actual injections only take a few minutes, with each injection site taking only seconds. After the filler is injected the marks will be washed off and we will offer you an ice pack to reduce any minor swelling or pain.

Many patients have found that they enjoy a more youthful, smoother appearance after treatment with Restylane® or Juvederm®. Aside from dermal fillers, Juve Surgical offers additional beatifying services such as laser hair removal, liposuction, and microdermabrasion at our Delaware cosmetic surgery center.
