What is a Dermal Filler?
The term “dermal filler” refers to the hyaluronic acid filler that is injected into target areas of the face, neck, and hands. A variety of products are available, which is why it is important to consult with us for personal recommendations.
These fillers can be placed in a variety of areas including the temples, cheeks, under eyes, neck, lips, chin, jawline, or around the mouth. The goal is to restore volume loss, by helping to enhance the natural features or correct minor imperfections.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are injectables that are FDA-approved, offering an effective way to help you slow down the effects of aging using minimally-invasive procedures.
What Dermal Fillers Treat
When are dermal fillers used as the recommended treatment? These injections offer effective results for a variety of conditions:
- Marionette Lines
- Under Eyes
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Over time, the body absorbs the hyaluronic acid fillers, which means that this treatment is temporary and not permanent. Depending on the areas treated, you can benefit from fillers for a minimum of 6 months or more.
Regular appointments can help you maintain the results that you desire. These results are natural-looking and require minimal to no downtime for recovery after the treatment.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Overall, hyaluronic acid fillers are the favorable option when it comes to injectables due to their properties: safe, long-lasting, non-immunogenic, and cost-effective. It is important to note, however, that hyaluronic acid dermal fillers do have risks associated with them. Understanding their limits and potential risks is crucial.
There can be temporary side effects, permanent side effects, or both with any dermal filler. Most dermal filler side effects resolve within a few days to weeks after injection. Some dermal filler injection side effects may appear weeks, months, or years after the injection.
