Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to add volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, and restore youthful contours to the face. They work by plumping up areas that have lost volume due to aging or other factors, helping to rejuvenate the skin and create a more youthful appearance.

The most common types of dermal fillers contain substances like hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and collagen. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are among the most widely used and are known for their ability to attract and retain moisture, giving the skin a hydrated and plump look.

During a dermal filler treatment, a healthcare professional injects the filler substance into specific areas of the face, targeting wrinkles, lines, or areas that have lost volume. The procedure usually takes around 15 to 30 minutes, and results are typically visible immediately, although there might be some initial swelling or redness that subsides within a few days.

The effects of dermal fillers are temporary, with results lasting anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism. Repeat treatments are often necessary to maintain the desired results over time.


How Can Dermal Fillers Help Me Look Better?

Dermal fillers work by adding volume to the dermis layer of skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Dermal filler treatments are not just for facial contouring: they can also be used on other body parts that need a little help, like around your nose or mouth, temples, even lips! For example, suppose you have sunken cheeks due to age or weight loss. In that case, our injector might use Radiesse, which will add immediate volume back into those areas restoring youthfulness and fullness in them again—even without makeup. Don't think only about how these results look either--dermal filling is excellent because it feels natural.

What is the composition of fillers?

Fillers are FDA approved substances with a variety of different applications. In general, they can be categorized by the substance injected into your skin for aesthetic purposes. When you're looking to make yourself look more youthful or want some help keeping up appearances, it's essential to have access to quality fillers from licensed surgeons like board-certified cosmetic surgeons, so you know what exactly goes in and where it comes out after the procedure!

What Should I Look For When Choosing a Filler Treatment Provider?

When selecting a provider for injectable treatments, consider the same level of care and scrutiny as you would when considering surgery. Non-surgical filler treatment is still a medical procedure that requires specific training and knowledge to guarantee safe results with natural-looking features. Look out for providers who have extensive facial anatomy knowledge, well developed aesthetic eyes, skillful precision in their work like surgeons do! You deserve the best for yourself. So, make sure to find a provider with extensive experience with cosmetic injections and who can provide before & after photos of their patients. Hence, you know what kind of results they are capable of delivering.

Which Filler Do I Require?

Fillers are often used to address wrinkles, acne scars and other skin imperfections. With so many options on the market, it isn't easy to know which is best for you without a cosmetic surgeon's guidance because each has different properties that make them work better in certain places. Your doctor will determine what product works best depending on your needs. Still, some factors like desired density or injection depth can be specific to an area of concern, such as facial lines around the mouth where something with more firmness may do better than something looser.

What To Expect?

This is non-invasive procedures that are usually performed during an office visit. The first step in your treatment will be a meeting with your cosmetic surgeon to discuss your concerns and objectives for the injection procedure. You can feel comfortable knowing that our team is well trained in this procedure as they complete it on almost every patient we see--and yet each one has its own unique needs!
