As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. Dermal fillers help to restore volume and fullness in the face as well as diminish facial lines. Revolumizing the face does not always replace the need for a surgical procedure, but in many cases, surgery can be avoided or delayed simply by strategic revolumization of the face. Common dermal fillers include the brand of Juvederm products, Restylane products, Revanesse Versa, Revance RHA. Belotero, and Radiesse. Dermal fillers can be used to highlight or enhance facial features as well as to:
Plump or enhance thin lips
Enhance chin, cheek, and jawline
Soften facial creases and wrinkles
Improve undereye shadowing
Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
Improves symmetry in facial features
Softens worry lines and smoker's lines
All you need to know about Dermal Fillers
What is the main use of dermal fillers
As the name implies, dermal fillers can “fill up” the void left by declining subcutaneous fat levels. Dermal fillers can be used to restore skin to it’s previous, more youthful appearance. Or to alter the shape of facial features on younger people who are unhappy with their appearance, such as making cheeks look plumper.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Dependent on the brand, your results from fillers can last from 6 months for Hyaluronic acid-based (HA) products like Juvederm or Restylane, to 2 years for the more longer lasting HA fillers. The exact time will depend on several factors, such as the extent of aging before treatment (deep lines take more product to fill and may return quicker than shallower fine lines), follow-up schedule, and your general skin and physical health.
How much do fillers cost?
The cost of dermal fillers depends on the extent of treatment. In most cases, fillers are charged per syringe, so the final cost depends on how many syringes and how many treatments you get. Also, the cost depends on the type of dermal filler used, the result you want to achieve, and the geographic location of the clinic.
Offices typically charge $500-$1000 per syringe of filler. Most patients will use one or two syringes per treatment area, per session.
The Difference Between Botox® and Dermal Fillers
Botox® Cosmetics is a form of botulinum toxin that is injected to correct facial creases. This is achieved by the toxin paralyzing facial muscles that would normally contract. When these muscles cannot contract, wrinkles will be unable to form, resulting in a much more youthful look.
Dermal fillers are a bit different. Dermal fillers fill in the gaps between skin layers, correcting wrinkles by leveling the skin’s surface beneath the epidermis. Fillers can correct wrinkles, soften skin, and give lips more volume.
