New to the World of Dermal Fillers

dermal fillers Dallas, TXTake a look around you. Does it seem like everyone is aging at a slower rate than they used to? Does your 50-year-old neighbor look like she could easily be in her early 40’s because she hardly has any wrinkles? Don’t let them fool you, more people than you are probably aware of getting Botox and dermal fillers. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox was on a 4% rise in 2016 alone— which means that your next door neighbor may have been one of them.

If you are new to the world of dermal fillers, you may not be aware of the procedure itself and what you can expect. To help ease your worries and make you feel a bit more prepared, we have created a brief step-by-step guide.

Step 1: Mapping

Yes, a mapping is for road trips and your next big trip to Target with five kids, but mapping is also used for dermal fillers. Before we start, Dr. Matthew J. Trovato or one of his nurses will take a closer look at your face and will map out where the injections should go. Sometimes, pictures will be taken.

Step 2: Cleansing and Numbing

Once everything has been strategically mapped out, your skin will be completely cleansed with an antibacterial agent— this will help reduce the spread of bacteria. Afterward and depending on your personal preference, your skin may be numbed with either a topical numbing agent or an injection.

Step 3: Injections

This is where the magic happens. Dr. Matthew J. Trovato will make small injections across the mapped out portion of your face. Depending on how many injections you are getting, it may take only 15 minutes, but you should plan for around 30-60.

Step 4: Clean Up

After Matthew J. Trovato has evaluated your face to ensure that everything looks full and symmetrical, you will then be cleaned up and sent on your way. Depending on how your skin reacts to the injections, we may send you home with a small ice pack to ease swelling.
