What Are Dermal Fillers?
Also known as facial fillers, dermal fillers are soft tissue injectables that provide long-lasting skin augmentation by filling in areas of your face that lack or have lost volume. This produces a fuller, more youthful appearance by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, and the effects are generally expected to last anywhere from six to 24 months.
There are four main classes of FDA-approved fillers:
- Polydioxanone Threads (PDO)
- Hyaluronic Acid
- CaHA: Radiesse
- PLLA: Sculptra
At our office, we offer JUVÉDERM® (hyaluronic acid) and smooth threads. We also use injectable bio-fillers using PRF technology and heat treating. Every dermal-filler treatment we offer is FDA-approved, trusted and proven to work effectively and offer exceptionally long-lasting results.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Results produced by dermal fillers vary depending on the type of filler used, but when applied correctly, they are as effective as BOTOX for combatting the effects of aging skin. They are particularly successful at treating:
- Thinning lips
- Frown and marionette lines
- Under-eye hollows
- Nasolabial folds
- Lip wrinkles
- Sagging jowls
Completing a dermal filler session is very straightforward, and it is considered an excellent quick fix for addressing premature signs of aging. You may begin to see the effects immediately after treatment.
