Introduction to Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and add volume to the face. It is very safe and effective, and they can be used to treat a variety of different areas of the face depending on the desired results. For example, injecting fillers into the cheeks can help to create a more youthful appearance, while injecting them into the lips can help to plump them up. Fillers can also be used to treat other areas of the body, such as the hands and the décolletage. Dermal fillers are a great way to achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery.

What are Dermal Fillers made of?

Dermal fillers are made of a variety of different materials. The most common dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body. Other popular materials used in dermal fillers include Calcium hydroxylapatite and Poly-L-lactic acid(PLLA). Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the body. It is a sugar molecule that attracts and binds water, which helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid fillers are very popular because they are very effective and have very few side effects. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a substance that is found in the bones and teeth. It is often used as a dermal filler because it can help to add volume to the face and can also help to improve the appearance of wrinkles. PLLA is used to create structure, framework, and volume to the face. It is known as a bio-stimulatory dermal filler, this means it stimulates your own skin to produce new collagen.

What does a Dermal Filler do?

The most common type of dermal filler is Hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, and it helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid fillers work by binding to water molecules and creating a volumizing effect. This can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. It also helps to augment facial features such as taller nose, sharper chin, and a V-shaped face. 

How long do Dermal Fillers last?

The answer depends on the type of dermal filler used. Hyaluronic acid fillers last six to twelve months. Poly-L-lactic acid fillers last up to two years. The length of time a dermal filler lasts also depends on the individual’s age, skin type, lifestyle, and the area treated. For example, younger patients with healthier skin may see results that last longer than older patients with more sun-damaged skin. And people who smoke or have a history of excessive sun exposure may see results that don’t last as long. As for the area treated, fillers injected into the lips generally last six months, while those injected into the cheeks can last up to two years.
