Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are synthetic, gel-like formulations that temporarily replace lost facial volume. They are an excellent treatment for reversing the early signs of aging and offer the opportunity to achieve enhanced facial contouring without the risks and downtime of cosmetic surgery.
Dermal fillers can deliver a wide range of results, depending on the formulation and volume of filler used. Some of the improvements available through dermal fillers include:
- Fuller, plumper lips
- Softened facial wrinkles and creases
- Rounder, softer mid-face fullness
- Improvement in recessed scarring
- Fewer shadows beneath your eyes
Dermal fillers can even reconstruct deformities in facial contouring.
The team at Advanced Eye Center works with you to find the product best suited for your specific enhancement goals.
How do dermal fillers work?
Most dermal fillers are formulated from a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. As you age, you lose much of your natural hyaluronic acid, which decreases the volume in your face.
Dermal fillers work by reintroducing fullness in the areas where your skin is sagging or falling. The fillers lift and smooth your skin, helping you look younger and more well-rested. Best of all, dermal fillers prompt your body to produce new collagen, which can prolong your results.
Dermal fillers are administered via a series of injections. The needles used for dermal fillers are extremely thin, and there is little discomfort associated with getting dermal fillers.
There’s no need for anesthesia or special preparation. Your appointments will likely be brief, but the results can last for several months.
How long do dermal fillers last?
You’ll notice a change immediately after your appointment, but it takes a few weeks before the filler materials fully integrate into your tissues, so the full effects may take time to develop.
Those effects will last between 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used and where it was placed. Any new collagen produced as a result of dermal fillers will remain in your body for far longer until the aging process eventually wears those cells away.
