Everything You Need To Know About Dermal Fillers

As time passes, our skin can show signs of aging after facial tissues thin out and lose volume. To replenish the loss of fullness, soften fine lines, and enhance facial symmetry, many turn to dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can return a natural plumpness to the face, leaving you looking healthy and less hollow. To help you understand the benefits of the minimally-invasive procedure, here is everything you need to know about dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Not to be confused with Botox, which freezes muscles through injection, dermal fillers add fullness to thinned areas through injection. Many dermal fillers do so with naturally occurring substances found in our bodies such as hyaluronic acid, which keeps tissues in the body moisturized and slick for easy movement, and calcium hydroxylapatite, which helps strengthen our bones. Other substances, like polyalkylimide, polylactic acid, and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres, are compatible with the body and commonly used in dermal fillers too.

What Should I Expect During Dermal Filler Treatment?

While there are little to no side effects with dermal fillers, it’s important for you to list any medications you take and share any allergies or medical conditions you may have with your practitioner to ensure your safety. Before your treatment, your medical history will be reviewed and your goals for the fillers will be discussed before moving forward with the treatment. Your practitioner will clean and numb the area before injection.

After treatment, depending on the treated area and the substance used, you’ll likely see results instantly. You may experience mild bruising and swelling, but recovery time is quick and as long as you aren’t participating in strenuous activity, you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Filler length can depend on the substance used, the amount injected, and how deep it was injected. It also depends on where the filler was injected and how the patient’s body responds to the filler. That said, fillers can last anywhere from six to 18 months.

How Do I Choose the Best Provider for Dermal Fillers?

Though it’s not surgical, dermal fillers are an injectable treatment and medical procedure that require expert knowledge and skill, so it is important that you choose a practitioner who understands facial anatomy and has experience creating natural-looking results. In your consultation, you can ask to see before and after photos of your provider’s patients to gain an understanding of how they work.
