A majority of people who choose dermal filler medspa treatments are above the age of 35. Their key concern is to reduce the effects of facial aging, and restore a smoother, younger looking face. However, younger people in their 20s may also be outstanding candidates if they want to achieve a more desirable pout or correct minor deformities in the nose or in the chin.
Some candidates choose dermal fillers to volumize the cheeks or fill the depressions or hollows under the eyes. The treatment provider will carefully determine the candidacy of an individual before recommending a suitable dermal filler procedure. Motykie medical spa provides dermal filler treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Common Concerns of Candidates
A typical candidate for dermal filler injectable treatment would have one or more of the following concerns:
- Appearance of nasolabial folds or deep nose to mouth lines
- Smoker’s lines around the mouth
- Thinning or sunken cheeks due to loss of cheek volume
- Thin or unevenly shaped lips
- A receding chin
- Minor nose deformities such as a nasal hump
The typical candidate would be bothered by these facial aging signs or aesthetic anomalies, but would prefer to avoid a surgical procedure. Working people and busy moms usually make marvelous candidates for dermal filler injections because this medspa treatment involves minimal to no downtime and very little risk of complications.
As long as person is above the age of 18, they can be appropriate candidates for dermal filler injections if they are unhappy about the signs of premature aging. No gender restrictions apply, and both women and men are equally decent candidates. The ideal candidate for dermal fillers would be a non-smoker or someone willing to quit smoking for a certain period of time as per the provider’s advice.
Non-smokers make ideal candidates because they heal faster and the squinting and sucking motions that are made during smoking exacerbate facial lines, making the results less sustainable. Fillers are also an excellent option for candidates who are bothered by specific problem areas that do not extend to the rest of the face. For instance, a candidate may want to smooth the nasolabial folds, but does not feel they are extreme enough to warrant a facelift surgery.
Candidates who choose hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane or Belotero will usually not be required to undergo a prior skin allergy test to determine candidacy. Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible ingredient, which makes it safe for all patients. However, if the patient chooses animal-based dermal fillers such as bovine collagen, an allergy test is necessary prior to the procedure.
Who is not a Candidate?
Pregnant women or women who are nursing may not be impressive candidates for dermal filler injections. Patients with acne should have their condition treated first because such skin conditions may increase infection risks following dermal filler treatment.
Patients with an auto-immune disease should also consult with their doctor before choosing a particular type of dermal filler. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for dermal filler injections.
