Thank you very much for visiting Anna’s Cosmetics, a place where you get the warmest welcome, the most adequate and timely professional advice and a wide range of only top-quality dermal fillers and other products that help us remain beautiful and ageless. Unfortunately, age and external factors are not the only ones that we have to fight on our way to a smooth and young skin. Acne scars can become a single, yet very unpleasant issue for any person, who cares about their appearance. Great news is that you can use a cosmetic filler to solve a variety of aesthetic problems, including the acne scars. While improving the general appearance of your skin, dermal fillers will also help you eliminate wrinkles and add volume to the lips for an even more dramatic improvement.
HOW IT WORKSYour dermatologist uses a very thin needle to introduce the filler in your skin. It lifts the skin and levels its surface. In addition, dermal fillers are capable of breaking up the scar tissue. Why is it good? Because dermal fillers also stimulate collagen production, which means that new tissue will be formed in places of their injection. So, the filler breaks the scar tissue and helps new, healthy tissue form in its place, thus smoothing out the scars. Of course, no one says that a single filler treatment will solve the issue of acne scars at once. But it will certainly make your skin look smoother than it was before the treatment, EVEN when your body metabolizes the filler completely. At that, touch ups will require less amount of filler injected due to this long-going effect of fillers treatment for acne scars. It might take some time for the filler to settle and provide the final result, though you already can rejoice with what you see in the mirror after applying a little makeup – a smooth skin, even under different light angles. Now back to the procedure itself. As a rule, a filler injection session lasts 20 to 40 minutes although, of course, these are the average numbers. If you have too many acne scars, it may take longer, so when you schedule the treatment, do allow some additional time. You may also need touch ups to achieve full correction of the skin imperfections, but those are usually performed a bit later, so you will have enough time to receive your order from me, Anna, because I use the fastest possible delivery services.
HOW LONG THE RESULT LASTDermal fillers are unique in their ability to provide immediate restoration of the facial volume that you lost because of the acne scars. The full effect, however, becomes visible in a matter of 2 to 5 days after the cosmetic treatment. As for the actual duration of fillers effects, it usually lasts up to 24 months and depends on such factors, as:
- type of the product used
- severity of acne scars
- your metabolic rate.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENTCongratulations, you took an important step to get rid of acne scars and raise your confidence level, and now you need to take care of the area treated. No, it’s not about some difficult rehabilitation techniques or the need to visit your doctor. It’s far from what patients do to rehab after a surgical intervention, for example. It is very simple. In fact, you won’t have to do much, yet you do need to avoid some activities, such as:
- Massaging your face, even if the massage comes from a professional. You will have to live without facial massage for at least 7 days (better make it 14 days, to make sure)
- Using heavy exfoliators. Big no-no! Let your skin have some free time from aggressive products. These are banned for 7 to 14 days, as well.
- Intense exercising. You don’t want any additional swelling. Let your lymphatic system cope with the fillers first, and then you can go back to keeping fit. This limitation only lasts for 24 hours, so it doesn’t mean that you will lose your body shape while getting a perfect face.
- Drinking alcohol. Well, you might want to celebrate the positive changes, but you certainly have to delay the party for at least 24 hours. If you need to visit an important social event, better abstain from alcohol or schedule your treatment after the event (at least 48 hours after alcohol consumption).
