What Are The Benefits Of Dermal Fillers?
Virtually everyone these days knows at least a little bit about injectable fillers and probably even knows someone who uses fillers. If you have been thinking about getting fillers to reduce wrinkles and restore lost volume, the expert team at Dermatology Center of Dallas can help. Discover the benefits of injectable dermal fillers here, and learn what results may be possible for you.
What are fillers?
Cosmetic fillers are injectable products that are designed to restore a more youthful, smooth facial contour by filling in lines, wrinkles, hollow areas, and other depressions. Additionally, injectable fillers can help to plump up naturally flat features, such as thin lips.
Oftentimes, dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which mimics the hyaluronic acid found in the skin, giving patients notably natural-looking results. Additionally, HA filler results can be reversed using another product called hyaluronidase.
Where can fillers be used?
Injectable fillers can be used to enhance a number of features, including:
- Forehead lines
- Static wrinkles
- Hollow cheeks
- Nasolabial folds
- Thin lips
- Asymmetric nose
- Back-set chin
- Weak jawline
Most often, injectable dermal fillers are used to reverse the signs of facial aging, such as static lines and wrinkles, but these products can also be extremely beneficial for nonsurgical facial contouring. For example, many men and women undergo liquid facelift and liquid rhinoplasty procedures to enhance their facial features without the expense, downtime, and scarring associated with cosmetic surgery.
How long do fillers last?
The most common dermal fillers administered at Dermatology Center of Dallas are included in the JUVÉDERM® family of HA fillers. Depending on the area injected, the specific product used, the patient’s rate of metabolizing the product, and other factors, most men and women can expect their filler results to last for up to one year or longer before a repeat injection is needed.
Can I get fillers in my 30s?
Many patients have questions about the earliest age for fillers. While most men and women begin to experiment with fillers in their 40s and 50s, many patients take advantage of the benefits of fillers in their 20s and 30s. For example, injectable fillers can plump up the lips for a fuller pout, balance a weak chin, and even enhance nasal features without the need for rhinoplasty.
During your initial consultation for dermal fillers in Dallas, our expert team will carefully evaluate your concerns, discuss your goals, and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment for you.
Do I need fillers or BOTOX®?
It is important for patients to understand the difference between BOTOX and fillers. As an injectable neurotoxin, BOTOX works to temporarily paralyze the underlying muscle and smooth dynamic facial lines on the surface. Fillers, on the other hand, add volume to deep static lines, folds, and wrinkles with almost instant, long-lasting results. In the majority of cases, a combination of injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers offers the most comprehensive treatment and dramatic transformation.
