Bruise-Free Lip and Cheek Fillers
Enjoy looking your best with dermal fillers without the negative side effects. Dermal fillers for lips and cheeks can help you look younger and more attractive, but the injections can cause bruising, swelling and discomfort. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we use advanced bruise-free methods to ensure our patients get the best results from their dermal filler treatment, without the discomfort or visible effects from injections. If you live in Decatur or the surrounding area, we are your trusted source for bruise-free cosmetic injectables.
Dermal fillers can add volume beneath the skin to revitalize your appearance. For lips, filler injections can reduce fine lines or create the sexy pout you’ve always wanted. This can be done without surgery or a long-term commitment. Cheeks can also benefit from dermal fillers, especially as you get older. As fat content dissipates under the facial skin, or the cheek pads sag, you can look older and tired. Filler injections can help soften your face to look more youthful by hiding wrinkles, lines, eye bags and rounding your cheeks. Most dermal fillers offer results that last from one to two years, depending on the product used.
Dr. Benjamin Stong, our director and facial plastic surgeon, has the credentials and experience you want when undergoing any cosmetic treatment. As a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, he has the training and education to understand the best options to improve features on your face through treatments, including the use of dermal fillers. Dr. Stong is one of the few plastic surgeons that only uses blunt tip micro-cannulas for filler injections, ensuring all our injectable clients receive bruise-free treatments. Our clinic offers the highest quality cosmetic care near Decatur, for both surgical and non-surgical facial procedures.
Benefits of Blunt tip Cannulas for Filler Injections
Sharp, pointed needles are not the best option when it comes to dermal filler injections. The sharp tip can pierce tiny blood vessels under the skin, causing bruising and swelling. Traditional dermal filler injections can also require multiple injections to accomplish the desired result. Dr. Stong uses blunt tip micro-cannulas for all our lip and cheek filler injection procedures, which offer many benefits over other needle types.
The blunt tip on our micro-cannulas penetrates the skin without harming the blood vessels underneath. The blunted tip pushes vessels aside when administering the injection, resulting in fewer instances of bruising or swelling from the treatment. Plus, the micro-cannulas can accurately distribute filler in a large area, like the cheek, without the need for multiple injections. This creates excellent results with less pain and discomfort for our patients.
When choosing to undergo filler injections, there are many choices to make. The right filler product is necessary to achieve lasting, natural results. We offer a wide variety of options, including Sculptra, Radiesse, Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero. Dr. Stong and our team will help you choose the best options for your needs, explaining the differences and the benefits of each. Whichever you choose, we will ensure you get the best results with the least amount of discomfort or noticeable side effects. The procedure is quick and virtually painless. You can come in on a lunch break and return to work directly after, without worrying about visible bruising or swelling.
