Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Fine lines and wrinkles can be a major insecurity for the aging population, with dermal fillers being the most popular and extensively studied option used to diminish them. An effective alternative to plastic surgery, filler injections diminish and smooth facial lines, adding volume to your facial features for a youthful appearance.
What are the different types of fillers?
Several different kinds of filler injections differ in the “filler” substance that’s used to inject underneath the skin. Among the most common types include:
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the skin that draws fluids to the area of the injection. Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Belotero® are brands that fall under this category. All produce similar face-enhancing effects, typically lasts from nine to 12 months, but each might react slightly differently in certain areas of your face.
Sold under the name Radiesse®, this filler also works by stimulating new collagen production. Radiesse can eliminate deeper furrows or folds around the mouth, or add more volume to the cheekbones or jawline.
What are the benefits of using fillers?
The effects of fillers are evident almost immediately. You’ll have little to no downtime for recovery. Hyaluronic acid fillers, in particular, are based on a natural compound found in your body, making the occurrence of side effects rare.
