What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age wrinkles may develop around the face or mouth, and this is due to our bodies loosing subcutaneous fat that helps to support firm skin. Our faces shift down, and can look like they are sagging. Dermal fillers can help fight those signs of aging, rejuvenate your face, or plump lips to give a youthful appearance. Fillers can lift your skin, and provide the support needed to soften and get rid of lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate your skin, and give a plump and youthful look. Injecting fillers into your skin can restore volume, and provide long lasting results.
Where Are Dermal Fillers Commonly Used?
- The glabella lines or area between the eyebrows.
- In the lips to add volume and shape.
- The nasolabial folds or area around the nose or mouth.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers are chemically engineered into a thicker gel to prevent the product from breaking down. This makes the product last longer, and makes it more difficult for our bodies to dissolve the product once injected. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to add volume and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers stimulate collage production, and produce instant results that can last between six to nine months. With dermal fillers you can get that natural look, fuller plump lips, or contour your cheeks or chin. The product allows your skin to still move normally with natural looking results.
There is no preparation needed for dermal fillers. The amount of filler used will be customized to your needs and desired appearance. Patients may have some temporary swelling or bruising near the injection site, but this should subside after a few days. Treatments typically take about 30 minutes, and patients can return to their daily routine directly after their appointment.
