What You Should Know About Dermal Fillers
See if fillers are right for you!
Dermal fillers are one of the most common cosmetic procedures available today. With age, wrinkles and lines naturally develop on the skin, and many women and men feel insecure about these attributes. Retaining your youthful, smooth glow is easy with dermal fillers. Continue reading below to learn more about these anti-aging treatments.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like injections of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occuring substance already found within the human body.
How can dermal fillers help?
Unlike other anti-ageing treatments like botox, dermal fillers do more than just melt away wrinkle lines on the skin. They also add volume back into areas that may have become sunken or flat with age. Some of the most common uses of dermal fillers are:
- Erasing lines around the mouth and on the face/forehead (smile lines, lip lines, forehead wrinkles)
- Rejuvenating and plumping up cheeks or temples that have sunken down or flatted out
- Add volume and definition to top and bottom lips
- Smooth out the chin
- Redefine face and create the appearance on symmetry by filling in spots
What happens during the treatment?
Your face will first be cleaned to remove makeup, oils, and dirt. From there, the doctor uses a needle to inject the predetermined areas of your face with the dermal fillers. It’s really quite simple! After the procedure is complete, you can go right back to work or enjoying your favorite activities.
How long will my dermal fillers last?
There are different factors related to dermal filler longevity, including the type of product used, how much is injected, and how deep the injections are. However, the average dermal fillers last about a year without ever needing a touchup.
