Dermal Fillers Defined
Dermal fillers have quickly gained the position as one of the most sought after non-surgical anti-aging solutions. With FDA’s approval for various types of cosmetic fillers, and the amazing results produced by some of the popular fillers on the market today, it has become a treatment of choice for many people. Injectable wrinkle fillers cost a fraction of a traditional face lift surgery, involve minimal risk and almost no downtime, and can provide the desired youthful appearance in less than 30 minutes of procedure. Results with most dermal fillers can last for anywhere between three months to a year.
How does it work?
A dermal filler solution is injected directly into the targeted area that is causing the wrinkle, divot or crease. However, unlike Botox or Dysport, it does not relax the muscle, but fills the wrinkle or crease line with a biocompatible substance. This causes the wrinkle or line to disappear and the face appears younger. Fillers can also be used to fill out thin lips, volumize sunken cheeks, and plump up sagging skin.
What’s in a Dermal Filler?
A number of dermal fillers are available on the market today, and each one of them works slightly differently from each other. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance present in the human body that helps keep the skin tight and smooth. When the natural acid reduces in the body due to aging, sun exposure or other factors, it can be replaced with hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle fillers. Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane are three gel-based fillers containing hyaluronic acid particles. Several other fillers, such as Radiesse, are made of a collegen syubstance that is also found naturally in human skin. These are FDA approved for treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
