As we get older, the natural aging process, the toll of gravity, and genetics can cause a noticeable loss of volume in specific areas of the face. The microscopic building blocks of youthful skin include collagen and hyaluronic acid, which both decline with age.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
At Face Forward Medical Aesthetics, patients receive among the best dermal filler treatment in Lexington, MA, and beyond. First, the area will be cleaned to remove all bacteria, and you may be given a topical anesthetic to numb the skin prior to injection. Many filler products also contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, which is intended to help minimize discomfort during and after your treatment. Your provider will then strategically inject a precise amount of filler beneath the skin.
Depending on the product and the areas treated, you should see noticeable results immediately after receiving filler injections. Some patients experience mild bruising and swelling, but these symptoms are temporary and should subside over the days following treatment. You will be able to go back to your normal activities right away, but your provider may ask you to take the day off from exercise or other strenuous activities
