The Basics of Dermal Fillers

To achieve beauty, the appearance of youth is essential. Cosmetic surgery often seeks to remove tissues that interfere with this vibrant presentation. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, recreate this vitality by adding plumpness to lips and other facial features.

How Fillers Work

Fillers work much more fundamentally than Botox and other injectables, which prevent muscles from forming wrinkles. Instead, a dermal filler actually increases the volume of your facial tissues.

Even in good health, your face can change as you age and lose the volume that once signaled youthfulness. Lips become thinner and cheeks may acquire a hollow appearance. Dermal fillers make lips plump again and soften the natural lines of your face.

Filler Tips:

There are several substances available for these procedures. Consider these choices when you speak to a cosmetic professional about your options.

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers. HA is a natural substance found in your body. For this reason, it is perfect as a dermal filler.  Reactions to this product are practically unheard of because it is almost identical to the HA found in your own body. If there is a problem with the injection, this product can even be “erased” with a specific neutralizer called hyaluronidase. There are multiple brands of HA fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm and others.
  • RadiesseThis product relies on the body’s inflammatory process to generate a natural plumpness after it is injected and can last over a year.
  • Sculptra. This product causes your body to generate collagen as the product itself slow dissolves.  Because it leaves behind only your own natural tissues, it lasts over 25 months.
  • Permanent Fillers. The only truly permanent filler today is silicone.  However, due to multiple problems with this product in the past, it is generally not recommended as an injectable filler.

Look Younger with Fillers:

There are several ways to look young again with fillers. Some doctors also offer fat grafting as a cosmetic alternative. Looking younger is easy when you return volume to your face with the filler that is right for you.  If you are interested in filler treatments, please contact our office to find out the best solution for you.
