What are dermal fillers? Benefits And Effects

Dermal fillers are small injections of a gel composed of hyaluronic acid, which fills in wrinkles and adds volume to soft tissue.

Where are dermal fillers applied?

You may have them in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth, and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.

How do they work?

They restore lost volume to the face and filled areas, so deep lines are smoothed.

Why is it necessary?

Our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin due to aging, so dermal fillers help you regain that youthful appearance.  

According to the experts, when we are 25 years old we start to lose collagen, they decrease around 2% per year.

How long do dermal fillers last?

It depends on how your body reacts and the amount of hyaluronic acid applied, but most dermal fillers last between six and 18 months.

Do they have side effects?

Temporary side effects are normal after facial injections, they can cause swelling, redness, and tenderness in the skin.

It is completely normal after the procedure. These reactions are usually mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after the injection and resolve a few days after the subcutaneous injection. 

Do dermal fillers hurt?

When the filler is injected into the face, an anesthetic cream is applied before treatment.

Are there different types of dermal fillers?

The most common type of facial filler is hyaluronic acid, helping to maintain shape, even out skin depressions and provide hydration.

Poly-Caprolactone (PCL) or Ellanse is another filler that acts as a “collagen stimulator”. When injected into strategic locations on the face, it triggers the body’s natural response to produce collagen, giving you a much longer-lasting result.

Is there a difference between Botox and dermal filler?

Yes, there is a 100% difference between Botox and fillers. Botox prevents the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles, while dermal fillers are filled from below the wrinkle to soften them and promote a youthful appearance.
