This article will help answer the question “what are dermal fillers?” and if they are right for you.  

What Are Dermal Fillers and How Do They Work 

if you are looking for a safe, non-surgical way to smooth out a few lines in your face, plump your lips or take care of some deep set wrinkles, injectables may be the answer for you.  

Thousands of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed, youthful look while still maintaining their freedom of expression. It is important to understand that dermal fillers aren’t the same as neurotoxins.  

Neurotoxins are used to “freeze” muscles to reduce wrinkles, while fillers smooth out skin by filling in the wrinkles. Collagen used to be the preferred filler, however, today we are seeing synthetic acid compound being the top choice.  

Demal filler has the ability to store moisture and is responsible for giving skin a plump, hydrated look. It can be used topically to restore moisture, but a topical cream cannot restore lost volume, this is where dermal fillers come in.  

When sythentic acid is injected, it can add to the natural plumping action of your skin or replenish your body’s natural production of acid which diminishes as you age.  

As your skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with natural acid which adds structure and volume to your face. A lack of natural acid will cause your skin to sag and wrinkle, this is where the help of dermal fillers come into play. 

Dermal fillers are smooth, injectable gels that are made from naturally occurring acid. These fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate natural collagen growth.   

There are differing kinds of dermal fillers and they are unique in their own way but have some similarities. First, they all plump the skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss that results from the natural again process.  

Additionally, they help motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to its more youthful appearance.  

Dermal fillers are minimally evasive and are very safe for use. As with any procedure, there are possible risks that come with use.  

The most common side effect of dermal fillers are post-procedure bruising and swelling, which are usually minimal and resolve within a couple of days of injection.  

Filler treatments typically take between 20-40 minutes to administer and the amount needed will depend on the volume loss and the specific treatment area.  

Results will be visible immediately after treatment and will last anywhere from 6 months to a year on average, depending on the filler used and the treatment area.  

For best results, you will need to continue a course of follow up treatments to maintain your youthful glow. Give the experienced team at Face Fit a call today to see how we can help you look as youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside.
