What to expect from dermal fillers: Before and after examples in Downey

Dermal fillers bring a convenient, affordable, non-surgical rejuvenation option to millions of women and men in this country. Fillers smooth wrinkles, provide lift, contour facial features, define and plump lips, and in some cases, improve skin thickness and laxity. Dr. Douglas Blose is a Board-certified dermatologist. One of the most common questions posed at his practice is, “what results can I expect from dermal fillers?” A basic understanding of the products and injection process, and plenty of actual dermal fillers “before and after” photos helps patients in the Downey area visualize their own transformations.

Understanding dermal fillers

As a wrinkle filler – Did you know that a wrinkle is invisible to the human eye? What you actually see is a shadow created by the uneven contour of sagging or folded skin. Dermal fillers are injected into precise points beneath the skin, adding volume to smooth, or fill, wrinkles. Many popular dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. HA, in a smooth gel base, provides immediate volume. It also binds with water and swells for additional wrinkle reduction.

For volumization – Our faces lose volume (fat, muscle, hydration, and bone) as we age. Facial planes flatten, contributing to sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles. Some dermal fillers are intended specifically for re-volumization. These thicker, deep tissue fillers lift and restore youthful facial contours.

Different from Botox (but they work great together) – Botox is a neuromodulator, not a dermal filler. While both are injectables and both improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, they work in entirely different ways. Over time, repeated muscle contractions, such as frowning or squinting, create folds in the skin. Botox interrupts impulses that tell muscles to contract, allowing these areas to relax into a smoother complexion. You don’t have to choose between Botox and dermal fillers. Dr. Blose will design a customized treatment plan, suggesting the most appropriate combination of these and other rejuvenation techniques to meet your goals.

Before and after dermal fillers

Every face and body is unique. Each dermal filler performs in a slightly different way. Programs of non-surgical rejuvenation at Douglas A. Blose, M.D., Inc. are customized for the individual patient. The skill and experience of the injector play a primary role in creating stunning results. Because of these factors, outcomes are different for each patient. Dr. Blose begins with a careful analysis of your skin, and he takes time to understand what you want to accomplish. Then he gives you a good idea of the results you can expect, as together you look at before and after photographs of real patients. He answers your questions and points out where you will see improvement. While there is no downtime following dermal filler injections, you are provided with thorough post-procedure instructions. You also discuss a maintenance plan to preserve results.
