What You Need to Know About Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers (3) As we age, the skin on our faces can sink down and sag. This can make us appear a lot older than we are. In many cases, this has a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem. If this is something that you are struggling with, it is important to know that dermal fillers may be the solution that you are looking for. This treatment can effectively lift up your face and create a smoother and fuller appearance.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of filler injection that is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is biosynthetically produced, polylactic acid, and hyaluronic acid. These fillers are injected into areas of concern on the face to create a firmer and more lifted appearance.

What Do Dermal Fillers Help?

Dermal fillers are ideal for treating multiple problems on the face and skin. Some of the issues that these fillers can help address include:

  • Frown lines
  • Noticeable scars
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Weak chins
  • Asymmetrical features
  • Thin lips
  • Crow’s fat
  • Marionette and smile lines

In some cases, patients even find that dermal fillers are a reliable tool for creating a smoother and more youthful appearance on the back of their hands.

How Long Does the Treatment Last?

Treatment will last between 15 and 30 minutes. After receiving dermal fillers, the results should last between six months and several years. This will typically depend on the injection location and the type of fillers that you received.

What Is the Recovery Like?

After receiving dermal fillers, you will need to limit performing any strenuous activities for at least 48 hours. This will help to ensure you are able to heal faster and without complications. After the 48-hour period, you are typically free to resume normal activities. You may experience some swelling, and you may also feel sore. Bruising around the treated area is also common. However, all of these symptoms will resolve themselves within a few days.
