If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore volume to your facial features, dermal fillers may be the solution for you. In addition to performing weight loss procedures, the doctors and medical professionals working through Tijuana Bariatrics offer dermal fillers for cosmetic concerns in Monterrey and Tijuana and Monterrey, Mexico. You can revitalize your appearance with affordable treatments from doctors who hold themselves to the same safety standards as those in the U.S.
Understanding How Fillers Work
Dermal fillers are nonsurgical, injectable treatments used to temporarily reduce the appearance wrinkles and restore volume in the face. While various injectables offer different results, each treatment can significantly revitalize your appearance without the need for more-invasive surgery or downtime and recovery.
Dermal fillers can address a wide variety of concerns.
Types of Fillers Offered
Because no filler is right for every cosmetic concern, the doctors working through the Tijuana Bariatrics network provide a wide range of options to meet the unique needs of patients in both Tijuana and Monterrey. The most popular options include:
- JUVÉDERM®: This filler is made from hyaluronic acid. This substance naturally occurs in the body, so there is a much lower risk of rejection or allergic reaction than with other fillers. The effects of this treatment can last from nine months to an entire year. JUVÉDERM® is most often used to reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the nose and mouth, but can also help contour the cheeks or temporarily fill in scars. Additionally, because less water is absorbed by the hyaluronic acid, patients can enjoy significantly less swelling after their injections.
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC : This specialized version of JUVÉDERM® is typically used to treat the lips. These injections can help address a range of concerns from restoring volume to eliminating smoker’s or marionette lines around the mouth.
- Dysport®: Very similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® can eliminate frown lines and other facial wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. Usually recommended for treating lines on the forehead or between the eyes, this injectable can be administered in conjunction with a number of other fillers. During your appointment, the treatment is injected directly into the muscles that cause the skin to crease, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing future lines from developing.
Consultation and Appointment
The treatment process is typically the same for various types of dermal fillers. You will first meet with your doctor to discuss your cosmetic options. Your physician will ask about your goals for the procedure and can explain what results you can realistically expect. After viewing the exact areas of concern, your doctor can recommend which dermal filler or other treatment is most appropriate for your desired results.
Dermal fillers are nonsurgical, injectable treatments used to temporarily reduce the appearance wrinkles and restore volume in the face.
Appointments typically last between 30 minutes to an hour. Because the needles used to inject these fillers is very thin, patients rarely experience discomfort. However, your doctor can apply a topical anesthetic to numb the injection site before treatment. The number of injections you receive will vary, but once finished, you can immediately leave the clinic. You may experience a few days of soreness around the injection site, but the discomfort should not interfere with your daily routine and should fade quickly.
