We use dermal fillers from Juvederm and Restylane to keep your skin radiant, fresh, and most importantly, keeping your signs of aging to a minimum. Many of our patients have concerns regarding the longevity of their dermal filler treatments. We’ll show you how to keep your dermal fillers lasting as long as possible, allowing you to reap the full benefits of reversing the signs of aging at our clinic in Metro Atlanta. Here’s some important information you need to know if you want to extend the lifetime of your dermal filler treatments.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Everyone goes through the aging process. As we grow older, we start losing subcutaneous fat around the face and eyes, causing wrinkles and crow’s feet to form. Exposure to the sun, diet, and heredity influence the development of wrinkles. If you’re already eating a healthy diet and are taking good care of yourself but still want to reverse the effect of the wrinkles you’ve acquired, dermal fillers are your best asset for stopping many of the signs of aging. In conjunction with facial rejuvenation surgery, dermal fillers produce astounding results for many of our patients.

Why Juvederm and Restylane?

At Vortex Wellness, we exclusively use dermal fillers by Juvederm and Restylane. Both of these products are made from hyaurlonic acid and work to smooth out wrinkles and fold lines. The costs are also similar and can work on different areas of the body. Juvederm can be used for the lips and nasolabial folds, and Restylane is best suited for the lower eyelid areas. At Vortex Wellness, our professional team of aesthetic experts have extensive experience working with both of these filler products. We offer free consultations on all the aesthetic services we provide to our patients.

Dermal Filler Tips 

To prolong the effectiveness of treatments with our dermal fillers, here are a few helpful tips which will help you win the battle against the signs of aging.

Skin Maintenance

Maintaining your skin is one of the most important ways you can best make the most use out of dermal fillers. A thorough skincare regimen including moisturizer, preferably one with Vitamin C, is the best way to go in many instances. Furthermore, a great skincare regimen will make your dermal filler treatments last twice as long. It goes to show that good skin health and maintenance can have a dramatic impact on how well dermal fillers will work for you.

Minimize Exposure to Heat and UV Rays

Always put sunscreen on before you go outside. We recommend going with sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher, which blocks 93% of the UV rays from the sun. Too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays will undo much of the progress you’ve made while on dermal fillers. Even when the weather appears very cloudy, we still highly recommend applying sunscreen to your skin just in case. Also, it helps to wear sunglasses which minimize the strain from the sun.

Minimize Aerobic Exercise

For the first week, you receive your dermal filler treatment, it’s best to avoid too much aerobic exercise which accelerates your heart rate. Faster heart rates cause dermal filler materials to exit the body much quicker. After two weeks, then you can resume your regular exercise routine.

Eat Healthy

Of course, with any important change to your physical well-being requires a healthy diet to support your efforts. Stay away from foods packed with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, and sodium. All of these foods cause inflammation and make your wrinkles and crow’s feet return faster.

Lower Your Stress Levels

High stress lifestyles cause cortisol levels to build up in your system and cause the aging process to advance further. Dermal fillers do a great job of minimizing the side effects of aging, but the best prevention comes from living a happier lifestyle free of stress and worrying. In other words, take care of your physical and mental being, and you can not only extend the life of dermal fillers but prevent many unsightly wrinkles from returning.

How Often Should I Follow Up?

We recommend checking back in at our aesthetic clinic every 6-12 months as part of the maintenance process. It’s important you return to our clinic periodically to maintain your desired changes in appearance.
