What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments that target wrinkles and fine lines in various areas. It is a non-surgical injectable treatment that restores volume in the skin that has been lost due to age. It can smooth out areas of your skin and offer your skin overall rejuvenation. It is effective because it uses your skin’s natural renewal mechanisms to restore collagen and elastin to your skin. It can be used to treat many skin types and skin tones.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are many types of dermal fillers to choose from. Each one is specifically designed to treat particular areas and offers unique benefits. The way to choose the right dermal filler is to determine what your desired outcome is. During your initial consultation with us, we will discuss your goals and recommend a dermal filler to suit your needs. Here are some types of dermal fillers that we offer:
Hyaluronic Acid Based Fillers
As you age, the rate of hyaluronic acid production decreases. It is responsible for keeping your skin looking and feeling smooth, hydrated, and healthy by restoring volume.
The Revanesse® Family
Revanesse utilizes hyaluronic acid to restore volume in your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This filler adds natural-looking volume to the skin on your face because of its gel texture. The molecules are smooth with spherical and uniform particles. The results that are achieved with Revanesse are long-lasting. If you take good care of your skin in between your treatment sessions, you can enhance the length and intensity of the results.
The Juvéderm® Family
Juvéderm is one of the most commonly used dermal fillers on the market. It offers various types of treatments. Some of the treatments have been specifically designed to plump up lips and add volume to the cheeks. Other treatments have been designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When this dermal filler is injected into the treatment site, the hyaluronic acid lubricates the skin tissue. This allows your skin to take on a new rejuvenated form.
When you schedule a consultation with us, we will discuss all the details of the dermal filler, the procedure, and the aftercare with you. This will help you make the right choice and ensure that you gain the results that you desire.
What Areas Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
Dermal fillers can be used to treat the upper and lower regions of your face. These injectables are effective in treating mild to moderate wrinkles and hollow areas in your face and hands. Dermal fillers provide immediate results and require very little downtime. Here are some areas that can be treated with dermal fillers:
Dermal fillers are not only used for wrinkles and fine lines. They can be used to reduce the appearance of scarring caused by acne. While scars can create indents and uneven skin texture, dermal fillers can smooth out your skin and add volume. It does this in a subtle and non-invasive manner.
Chin, Nose, and Jawline
Dermal fillers can be used to reshape your chin and nose while recontouring your jawline. It is effective in reducing the appearance of a sagging neck and improves your side profile. This is caused by the natural process of aging.
Marionette lines are fine lines that appear below the corners of your mouth. Some lines commonly appear on the sides of your nose and run to the corners of your mouth. These lines are called nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of both these lines and create a soft, smooth appearance around your mouth.
We are all susceptible to volume loss in our cheeks. However, people that participate in high-impact exercise will experience more volume loss with age. Dermal fillers offer great results and won’t give your face that ‘face freezing’ look that may be associated with cosmetic treatments. It can give your cheeks an overall energized look.
Dermal Fillers can plump up lips and give them a natural shape. Your lips will have an even texture as they are filled. Lip fillers can be customized to help you achieve the results you desire.
You can also gain results from using a dermal filler under your eyes. Over time, the skin around your eyes may begin to sag or droop. A dermal filler treatment can help restore the elasticity in your skin.
Dermal fillers don’t temporarily stop muscle contractions in your face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Instead, they fill out the lines and wrinkles with hyaluronic acid.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Dermal fillers provide long-lasting results. However, the exact duration of the results depends on what filler is used. Dermal fillers usually last between six months and a year.
