Are you interested in non-surgical facial rejuvenation? Dermal fillers may be the answer for you. In the hands of an experienced injector, dermal fillers can be a powerful tool for enhancing features without the downtime of a surgical facelift. But what can dermal fillers treat?
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that are injected beneath the skin to enhance facial contours by restoring volume and smoothing the skin.
Types Of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid such as Revanesse Versa and Belotero Balance are the most popular fillers on the market. HA is a natural component in the body that keeps the skin plump and hydrated. Once injected, HA fillers plump the skin, resulting in a noticeable decrease in wrinkles.
What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
- Facial wrinkles, creases, and folds
Dermal fillers smooth facial wrinkles and folds and give the face a fuller, more youthful look. They are commonly used to fill in marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and lip lines.
- Sunken cheeks
Dermal fillers can be injected into the cheek area to plump saggy, sunken cheeks and give the face a more youthful appearance. The cheeks lose volume over time due to a decline in fat, but dermal fillers can improve the definition of the cheeks and contour the midface.
- Thin lips
HA fillers can be used to add volume to thin lips to create shape and definition.
- Wrinkled Hands
Radiesse is FDA approved for hand augmentation. It is the ideal solution for wrinkled, aging hands because it increases fullness in the back of the hands.
The results of dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6-24 months depending on the type of filler used and the area being injected.
When dermal fillers are expertly injected, the results should be subtle and natural-looking. It’s therefore best to consult with a qualified, experienced injector to get natural-looking results.
