What Are Dermal Fillers Used For?

If you notice you have wrinkles around the mouth or face, have a loss of volume in certain areas of the face, and are looking to fight the signs of aging, dermal fillers can help give you smooth and youthful looking skin. Dermal fillers can help plump up and fill out wrinkles that develop as we age around the face or mouth. They can also restore volume and fullness back to areas in the face where it has been lost. They contain hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced in our bodies, and helps to hydrate your skin. This gives a plump and youthful look that restores volume, and gives natural and long lasting results.

Where Are Dermal Fillers Used?

  • In the lips to add shape and volume.
  • The area between the eyebrows, or glabella lines.
  • In the cheeks to restore volume and give definition to the face.
  • In the chin and/or jawline to balance out the face and provide structure.
  • Under the eye in the tear troughs to reduce dark circles and under eye hollows.
  • The nasolabial folds or area around the nose or mouth.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are made up of a thick hyaluronic acid gel. This helps to prevent the product from breaking down quickly, and helps it last longer since the gel consistency makes it more difficult for our bodies to dissolve the product. Dermal fillers are injected into target areas to help diminish fines lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, and to add volume.  Fillers can produce results instantly, and can last between six to twelve months. After treatment your skin can still move normally and look natural. Dermal fillers can help to contour your cheeks and chin, or give you plump full lips.

Depending on your target areas and goals, the amount of filler used will be customized to your needs. After your filler treatment you may experience swelling or bruising near the injection site. This is temporary and should subside after a few days. Dermal filler treatments typically take around 30 minutes, and patients can usually return to their normal activities directly after their appointment.

What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

  • Results are immediate with dermal fillers.
  • Promotes long-term collagen and elastin production.
  • Creates results that look natural.
  • Dermal fillers are a non-surgical approach to treating different areas in the face.
  • Can be used alongside other treatments such as Botox injections.
