What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like injectables that can quickly treat the signs of aging, namely volume loss and fine lines and wrinkles. Injected under the skin, dermal fillers can also be used to enhance your facial contours, such as adding volume to your cheeks, enhancing the definition of your jawline, or augmenting the shape of your nose.
What Are Dermal Fillers Made Of?
Dermal fillers are composed of a variety of substances, some of which are synthetic and others that are naturally occurring in your body. One of the most common substances found in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a substance that can be found in your body. It is what keeps your skin volumized. Other types of dermal fillers contain poly-L Lactic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite, both of which are safe and helpful in reducing the signs of aging. Your doctor will work with you to decide which filler is right for you, considering your aesthetic goals and the degree of improvement needed.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers can be used to restore lost volume in different areas of your face. Some of the most common areas are the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin.
Dermal lip fillers can be used to add volume to thin lips or fill vertical lip lines that appear as you get older.
Volumize Your Cheeks
The mid-face is one of the first places to show the signs of aging. Volume loss in this area can create a hollowed-like appearance in the area between your cheeks and eyes. Dermal fillers restore lost volume, so you look refreshed and rejuvenated.
Reshape Your Nose and Chin
Dermal fillers can also be used to reshape your nose and chin by adding more definition to your chin or creating a more symmetrical appearance of your nose.
Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines
Nasolabial folds are the lines that run on both sides of your nose to your mouth. Marionette lines are the lines that run from each side of your mouth to your chin. Both kinds of lines can be corrected with the right type of dermal filler injection.
Do Dermal Filler Injections Hurt?
Every patient’s pain threshold is different, so what some may feel is painful others may consider a mild discomfort. Overall, most patients tolerate dermal filler injections well with only slight to no discomfort. Topical numbing cream can also be applied to treatment areas to help you be as comfortable as possible.
How Do I Prepare for Dermal Filler Injection?
You should avoid alcohol for at least three days prior to injection. Certain types of medications can thin your blood, so be sure to let your injector know all medications you are taking prior to injections. Blood thinners should be avoided for one week prior to having dermal filler injections performed.
Ideal Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Ideal candidates for dermal fillers are patients who do not smoke, live a healthy lifestyle, and have realistic goals about what dermal fillers can accomplish. They also do not have active skin lesions, infections, or an allergy to lidocaine.
