Dermal Fillers Q & A

What Are Dermal Fillers?

There are many different types of dermal fillers in use today that are effective at filling wrinkles and hollows that naturally occur in the skin as the body ages. As the collagen of the skin breaks down and begins to dissipate, wrinkles, fine lines, and hollows in the skin begin to appear making the skin look old and shriveled. Dermal fillers include substances like Botox®, hyaluronic acid mixtures, and fatty tissues that are harvested from a person's own body. The dermal fillers are injected into specific areas to lift the skin, expand the tissues, and increase the volume of certain areas like the lips and cheeks.

When Are They Used?

Dermal fillers are often considered for areas where wrinkles and fine lines have started to form, especially the forehead, around the eyes, nose, and mouth. As the skin begins to age and the loss of natural collagen can cause wrinkling and sagging. Over time, the skin's elasticity can be dramatically affected. Using dermal fillers restores the skin's natural, more youthful appearance. They can add substantial volume to certain areas, effectively eliminating wrinkles and hollows that cause the cheeks to look as if they have started to sink into the face. Dermal fillers can also be used in place of more invasive procedures like face and eyebrow lifts.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers can last for anywhere from two to six months, depending on where they are used and the type of filler that is used. The length of time the treatment lasts will also depend on the condition of a person's skin. People who are in good health in other areas, eat a nutritionally sound diet, and don't smoke or drink alcohol will often have longer lasting results than those who smoke frequently and don't take care of their skin. Botox® fillers are more durable than those created from a person's own tissues. The breakdown much slower and do not shift or move as easily. It is important to follow a doctor's specific orders when dermal fillers are used if the patient wants the best possible results.
