Your skin loses radiance and smoothness over time due to aging and sun exposure. Wrinkles are a normal part of aging, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with them. Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that add volume, hydration, and smoothness to your complexion.
You can restore a more youthful look to aging skin with premium wrinkle-filling dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers Made of?
Fillers are injectable treatments that fill in wrinkles and fine lines. They work to physically smooth your skin, but they also have skin-friendly ingredients that promote collagen production. The skin-safe acids in fillers keep your skin hydrated and elastic for a more youthful complexion even after the fillers dissolve.
Most fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that promotes collagen production. Your skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid, but your levels decrease as you get older.
Hyaluronic acid helps hydrate your skin. This skin-safe acid is a humectant, which means that it holds on to water under your skin. Aging can dry out your skin and make it lose its supple texture. The hyaluronic acid in fillers rehydrates and rejuvenates your complexion.
Dermal fillers have a gel-like texture. When injected, they sit under your skin to smooth wrinkles and fine lines.
Some fillers, like Revanesse, have smaller particles that give your skin more flexibility. Other fillers, like the Juvéderm line, have specific formulas that treat moderate to severe wrinkles. These formulas contain different densities of particles that smooth and volumize your skin.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that contains calcium hydroxyapatite — tiny particles that help your body produce collagen. As the filler starts to break down, these particles form a matrix of collagen. This creates more elastic, youthful-looking skin.
Who Should Get Fillers?
Good candidates for fillers are people who have mild to severe signs of aging on their faces. Some dermal fillers can be used on other parts of your body, like your hands and jawline. Depending on the formula, fillers can almost entirely erase deep fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are just starting to notice mild signs of aging, a lighter formula like the Restylane line might be best for you. With these injectable treatments that plump, smooth, and hydrate your skin, you can get ahead of the signs of aging.
Radiesse is a good formula for people with more severe signs of aging. If you have deep facial creases and sun-damaged skin, Radiesse will give you a more youthful complexion. This filler is known for its powerful anti-aging effects.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
After your filler injections, you should quickly notice improved skin volume and suppleness. The gel portion of the filler settles into your skin right away to smooth wrinkles. After your appointment, it can take up to two weeks for full results. At this time, you will notice more hydrated, smoother, youthful-looking skin.
How Long Do Results Last?
Each brand of filler has a different lifespan. Most fillers dissolve over time and are absorbed by your body. The skin-safe acids leave behind a better complexion and skin texture.
Dermal fillers typically last between six months and two years. Depending on your specific formula’s lifespan, we will let you know when to schedule follow-up appointments.
We work with you to come up with a treatment plan that addresses your skin aging concerns. Patients who receive more intense filler formulas may not have to come in as often for more injections. For those who choose the lighter formulas, you may have to schedule appointments twice a year.
Your results fade slowly, so you don’t have to worry about losing your youthful complexion all at once. As long as you continue to receive these injectable treatments, you will enjoy smoother, more youthful skin.
How Do I Prepare for Injectable Treatments?
Most cosmetic treatments require some preparation to get your skin and body ready. With dermal fillers, there is almost no preparation required. For the best results possible, we advise you to stop drinking alcohol 24 hours before your appointment.
With your doctor’s approval, you should also stop taking blood thinners at least one week before your appointment. Always consult your doctor before stopping any medications.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical skin treatment. Unlike surgery, there is no downtime or recovery after your appointment. You can go right back to work, school, or running errands after your injectable treatments.
