unwanted signs of aging

Has it started to feel like your skin is not as full and supple as it once was? Are you frustrated with unwanted signs of aging?

Have you considered pursuing treatments to refresh your appearance, but a surgical procedure or other highly invasive measures do not align with your lifestyle? Dermal fillers may be the solution to your concerns! Dermal fillers are non-surgical, minimally invasive injectable treatments to provide subtle increases of volume to reduce the appearance of unwanted signs of aging. Explore the types of dermal fillers Annapolis offers, and potential benefits of each, during a consultation with our team at O'Donnell Medical Aesthetics!

What Are Fillers?

Fillers are non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment options to restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of signs of aging.

One of the biggest reasons we develop fine lines or wrinkles is due to a loss of collagen and elastin in our skin. Collagen provides structure to the skin, and the loss of collagen can create a sunken or worn appearance. Some fillers can also be used to volumize and augment lips as well. Dermal filler treatments can include the cheeks, lips, chin, and jawline with excellent results being achieved in just one treatment. However, this varies with each patient.

For our patients in Annapolis dermal fillers are a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery because there is little to no downtime. In fact, over 2 million people have made dermal fillers their choice of cosmetic treatment. Your aesthetic specialist will discuss all of your options to determine the filler that is right for you during your consultation.

What Could I Expect from Treatment?

Dermal fillers in Maryland are administered in the comfort of our O'Donnell Medical Aesthetics in Easton or Annapolis, MD offices. The treatment process is relatively simple, and there is little to no pain associated with the injections. However, you may experience some discomfort or pinching at the injection site. The dermal filler is injected in small amounts into specific areas to enhance, shape, and contour your face. Each filler is designed with unique properties, including longevity. However, an injectable treatment is not permanent, and additional treatments may be necessary. Prior to your treatment, it is important to avoid the following medications or supplements:

  • Aleve
  • Aspirin
  • Motrin
  • Fish oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Multivitamins

These over-the-counter medications and supplements act as blood thinners and may cause bruising to the injection sites. Our Annapolis aesthetic specialists will evaluate the areas on your face you are wanting to treat. Your procedure will take about 15 minutes to one hour depending on the size of the area or the amount of filler needed to provide you with optimal results.
