Dermal FillersAre you one of the many Deerfield residents unhappy with your appearance due to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and other common aging symptoms? If so, a trip to Deerfield Dermatology Associates for dermal facial filler injections may be just what you need. Read over this list of dermal facial filler frequently asked questions and then call your dermatologist at Deerfield Dermatology Associates to determine a treatment plan that is just right for you.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal facial fillers are injections that are given in order to reverse the signs of aging and to restore the skin's youthful vitality once again. Dermal fillers can be used to restore facial volume and fullness, diminish wrinkles and fine lines, plump thin lips and improve the appearance of certain scars.

Dermal fillers typically offer a cheaper and more natural-looking alternative to more invasive procedures such as face lifts, eye lifts and brow lifts. They are perfect for people who would like to give their skin a little boost without having to undergo surgery.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

Dermal fillers are considered to be a safe cosmetic procedure, although they are not without their risks. Common risks associated with dermal facial fillers include redness, bruising, swelling, acne, asymmetry, scarring and over or under-correction.

What is the Procedure for Getting Dermal Fillers?

The procedure for getting dermal fillers is quite simple. First, your dermatologist will assess and map your face to determine what injections are needed and where they will be given. Next, your skin will be cleansed, and you may be given a painkiller if needed. The procedure is generally not too painful, however. Your dermatologist may also mark the areas where you will be given the injections.

Once your skin has been prepared, your dermatologist will administer your injections, massage the area and evaluate for optimal results. Lastly, once you and your dermatologist are happy with the results, your face will be cleansed again, and you'll be ready to return home. You may be offered an ice pack or medication for the pain, but these are generally not needed.

Are Dermal Fillers Permanent?

The effects of dermal fillers do wear off over time. Speak to your dermatologist before treatment to find out how long your treatment is likely to last and what you can expect as it begins to wear off.

If you're ready to reclaim your younger, more vibrant appearance, visiting Deerfield Dermatology Associates for dermal facial fillers is one excellent way to do just that. Call and speak to one of our dermatologists to set up an appointment today!

Discover how your Deerfield dermatologist can give you smoother, more radiant skin.

While we all want the perfect skin, it can be rather challenging to keep it looking its best, especially as we get older. Issues such as sun damage, spider veins, and wrinkles can keep us from having a more youthful appearance. Learn how your Deerfield, IL dermatologist Dr. Divya Singh-Behl can help you achieve a younger you.

What is LimeLight™?

This 3-in-1, non-invasive skin rejuvenating treatment allows your Deerfield, IL dermatologist to improve the overall quality and tone of your skin while also treating certain superficial problems like pigmented lesions caused by normal aging and sun damage.

What skin problems and areas of the body is LimeLight™ right for?

LimeLight™ treatment targets red and brown pigmented spots, as well as small veins on the legs, face, neck, arms and chest that are caused by sun damage. It can also reduce redness (e.g. rosacea) and improve skin tone. Since LimeLight™ offers three different treatments (programs A, B and C) in one your Deerfield dermatologist can easily to cater to a variety of patient needs, skin types and dermatological issues and looks.

What should I expect when I get LimeLight™ treatment in Deerfield, IL?

During your treatment, your Deerfield, IL dermatologist will direct the handheld device against the treatment area. You may feel a slight stinging sensation during your treatment. The treatment session will take about an hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area.

After your LimeLight ™ treatment you may notice that some of the spots may appear darker or redder. This will go away within a few hours.

Will I need more than one treatment? How long does each treatment take?

Patients usually require up to three treatments to get the best results.

When will my results be visible?

Between one to three weeks after your treatment you will start to see spots lighten and flake away. You’ll notice the most visible results several months after your LimeLight™ treatment.

It’s important to note that brown and red spots may continue to form if you experience new sun damage. Luckily, these new spots can also be treated with further LimeLight™ sessions. After your treatment, wear sunscreen every day to protect your skin from further sun damage. Talk to your Deerfield, IL dermatologist about the best sunscreen for your skin.
