Tammy’s Experience with Dermal Fillers

Ageless Remedies customer service expert Tammy shares her personal experiences and results with dermal fillers.

Hi Tammy! Can you share a little bit about yourself?

Tammy, Customer Service

Hi! I’m Tammy, an active 58-year-old mother of two grown children.

I enjoy working out and playing tennis and pickleball. I love being outdoors, especially at the beach and lake. But that also means that my skin has some sun damage.

I’m a customer service expert at Ageless Remedies of Roswell, and I’ve worked here since 2017. I love the people here! The staff and clients are all wonderful to work with.

One of my favorite things about working at a MedSpa is that I get to see the results our clients are getting first-hand.

When I see something that works well for them, I want to try it myself!

What aesthetics services have you tried, and what service did you want to talk about today?

I’ve personally benefited from many of our aesthetics services, including microneedling, hydrafacials, collagen 90 facials, SmartXide CO2, sclerotherapy, CoolSculpting, and dermaplaning.

All of the treatments were helpful to target specific areas. I’m a huge fan of microneedling to stimulate collagen and SmartXide to repair sun damage and even out my skin tone.

However, one of the biggest concerns I have these days is volume loss in my face.

To help restore some of that volume, I recently decided to try dermal fillers for the first time.

I had a great experience, so I wanted to share my results with others.

Can you share more about your experience with dermal fillers?

I had a consultation with Cunard, one of our physician assistants.

First, she asked me which areas I was most concerned about and then did a detailed examination of my face.

Then she mapped out an overall plan for me and listed all the areas that could benefit from fillers. After talking about it, we decided to work on my cheeks, lips and nasolabial folds (“smile lines”).

I also learned that different dermal fillers work better in different areas. We would use Voluma for the cheeks, Vollure for the lips, and Juvederm for the nasolabial folds.

The consultation process was very helpful. It made me feel confident that the combination of fillers and treatment areas would help me achieve the results I wanted.

How did you feel during the procedure? Afterwards?

The dermal fillers procedure went very smoothly, and the pain was minimal.

For my cheeks and nasolabial folds, I just applied cold compresses immediately before the procedure. As you can imagine, the lips are more sensitive, so I used a dental block there.

After the procedure, I had a tiny bit of swelling in the lip area, but it lasted less than 24 hours. I had very little bruising.

Overall, the whole process was very easy and only took about two hours from start to finish.

I went right back to work afterwards!

How long did it take to see results from your dermal fillers?

I could tell the difference immediately, but the full effects became apparent 2-3 days later when the swelling had gone away.

If you’re considering dermal fillers for an event, I think it would be good to get the fillers 4-7 days in advance. That will give you time to heal completely and for the full effects of the fillers to show up.

Dermal Fillers – Before and After

I also have a couple more photos of me before and after the dermal fillers treatment to share.

They are candids, so it’s not an official comparison, but I think it’s helpful to see the results in “real life.” I want to be able to appreciate the effects of my treatments in regular photos!

I think the differences here are pretty clear:

You can definitely see more fullness in my cheeks, and my nasolabial folds (smile lines) are less hollow.

Would you recommend dermal fillers to others? Who could benefit from them the most?

I would definitely recommend them. I feel more confident and refreshed after my dermal fillers. I like seeing the difference the treatment has made in the mirror every day.

Anyone that has volume loss, especially in their cheeks or lips, would see great results from dermal fillers. Also anyone with deep creases or wrinkles — fillers really help with those, too.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Just one more thing. If you’re the kind of person who likes to connect with your service providers, you’ll feel right at home at Ageless Remedies.

For us, the client experience matters just as much as the treatment. A big part of what made the dermal fillers work for me was the in-depth consultation with Cunard.

I hear our customers rave about her all the time, and it was a pleasure to work with her myself!

If you’re interested in trying dermal fillers (especially for the first time), I encourage you to come in for a free consultation with Cunard or Gloria. You’ll be glad you did!
