Could Too Much Sun Exposure Affect My Dermal Filler Results?
During the summer, going to the beach, swimming in the pool, and spending time outdoors may be some of the best ways to soak up the sun and enjoy the season. However, if you have dermal fillers, you may need to take some precautions. At Body Bar MD, with offices in Carmel and Terre Haute, IN, Dr. Christy Kirkendol Watson uses Versa by Revanesse®, a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler made to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles. These dermal fillers can provide excellent results, but factors like sun exposure may impact your long-term outcomes. Here’s what you should know about dermal fillers and how to keep your younger-looking appearance for as long as possible.
What are Versa dermal fillers?
Facial wrinkles are a fact of life. Factors like age, smoking, facial movements, and sun exposure can all lead to fine lines and folds in your face. With dermal fillers, including Versa by Revanesse, done at our offices in Carmel or Terre Haute, IN, you can attain smoother, younger-looking skin.
Dermal fillers are facial injections that restore fullness and volume in your face. This can reduce signs of aging and help you attain results that creams, masks, and serums cannot. What’s more, Versa dermal fillers are the only hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in the country that come in a 1.2 mL syringe size, meaning we can provide 20% more product with each syringe.
How do Versa dermal fillers work?
At Body Bar MD in Carmel and Terre Haute, IN, Dr. Christy creates a dermal filler plan to help meet your unique needs. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals and concerns and create a plan for your dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injected into your mid to deep dermis, which are deeper layers of the skin. They add volume to the skin, helping to get rid of moderate to severe wrinkles.
In total, your treatment will take less than 15 minutes to complete. After your Versa dermal fillers, you’ll be able to go home and return to your daily activities.
What results should I expect from Versa dermal fillers?
When you commit to cosmetic treatment, you want results. With Versa dermal fillers, you can expect smoother-looking facial skin almost immediately. You’ll also see your results continue during the following days. Your results from Versa will last about a year after your last sessions.
Versa also leads to about 50% less swelling compared to other products. This means you won’t have to worry about your appearance in the hours right after the injections.
Can too much sun exposure affect my dermal filler results?
While results from Versa dermal fillers are made to be long-lasting, there are some factors that impact your results. One of these is the sun.
For starters, you should avoid direct sunbathing and tanning beds for at least two weeks following dermal filler injections. After that, it’s important to use sunscreen. Just like skin without dermal fillers, your skin after dermal fillers can become wrinkled more quickly with too much sun exposure.
Wear sunscreen (even on cloudy days), and use a hat when possible. These actions will prolong your results from Versa dermal fillers, so you can enjoy younger-looking skin for as long as possible.
By scheduling follow-up dermal filler injections, you can also ensure your results last for many years to come.
