Most patients who walk into Ideal Face & Body have heard about the wonders of dermal fillers and are eager to start treatment and reverse premature aging symptoms or enhance their features. After an initial consultation during which Dr. Yovino will review your medical history and devise a treatment plan to address all your concerns, your first appointment will be set, whether on the same day or at a different time.
At your dermal filler appointment, depending on the area treated, its size, and the filler used, Dr. Yovino may first apply a numbing cream on the areas prepared for treatment. A typical 15-30 minute procedure consists of removing makeup and cleansing the treatment site, followed by the administering of a relatively fast and painless injection containing the enhancing substance, using very thin needles. Our staff is competent and committed to helping you achieve the perfect balance between firmness and naturalness you’re looking for in your skin.
Actual Patient Before & After Lip Enhancement
After the procedure, the skin is immediately cooled with ice to make sure local swelling is reduced; mild itching, redness, and tenderness are potential side effects you can experience. Patients can typically resume their daily activities within a few hours but are generally advised to refrain from intense training and exercise and avoid direct sun exposure.
There is currently a wide range of injectable dermal fillers being used, each formulated to address different skin problems and concerns. Making the right choice regarding the filler is essential to the outcome of the procedure. With years of experience helping patients achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results, Dr. Yovino can advise about choosing the best injectable for your needs and budget.
