The evolution of dermal fillers has resulted in numerous products with different qualities and specifications. This is a testament to the fact that no one product is suited to meet the needs of each patient. Dr. Levin is able to provide customized dermal filler treatment.
What Takes Place During Dermal Filler Injections?
During the consultation, Dr. Levin will listen to your concerns, discuss your individual goals and design a treatment plan based on your needs and her examination. In most cases, treatment can be done on the same day as the consultation. The face is cleaned with an antiseptic (anti-bacterial) solution. The areas to be injected may be marked with a skin marker.
For sensitive areas such as the lips, a short-lasting injection can be done to anesthetize the area completely. Alternatively, a topical anesthetic can be applied. Dr. Levin uses a micro-cannula for most injections. This technique minimizes pain and bruising and can provide added safety.
The injections can be completed in a matter of minutes. After the procedure, the markings are cleaned off, and ice may be placed on the treated areas. You can resume normal activities right away and will receive post-procedure instructions on your specific treatment.
