What Type of Injection is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler is a great way to improve your appearance by getting rid of lines, wrinkles, creases, and restoring volume. Injectable dermal fillers involve the injection of a gel-like substance underneath the skin. The procedure is cost-effective and minimally invasive with reliable results.
Reviewing the dermal filler treatment process
The following is a review of dermal filler treatment, including an explanation of what an injectable dermal filler is, the different types of fillers, and how to determine which is most appropriate for specific treatment goals.
What is a dermal filler?
A dermal filler is a method of facial rejuvenation. It is a great alternative to surgical procedures, and it can be used to accomplish a variety of treatment goals, including but not limited to smoothing lines, reducing wrinkles, softening creases, and restoring volume. There are different types of dermal fillers. The most common materials that are used for dermal fillers include:
- Hyaluronic acid (HA)
- Poly-L lactic acid
- Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)
- Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
In general, dermal fillers are designed to make the patient look younger. Be sure to discuss the different types of injectable dermal fillers when determining which is the best solution.
What dermal filler is right for me?
Of course, the best way to determine the right dermal filler is to visit a plastic surgeon that offers dermal filler treatment. There are a variety of brand names available, each of which has its own pros and cons to consider. When helping you choose a dermal filler, the provider may consider the part of the face that is being treated. For example, the same dermal filler may not work for treating chin wrinkles as it does for smoothing the area under the eyes.
How are dermal fillers injected?
Dermal fillers are injected underneath the skin in a non-invasive process. Some patients report feeling minor numbness and discomfort with certain brands, although this should go away relatively quickly after treatment (within 48 hours).
What are the benefits of dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical alternative to addressing cosmetic facial issues, such as lines and wrinkles from aging. There are very few side effects and they are typically not severe and improve on their own when they do occur. Dermal fillers are also a cost-effective solution relative to alternative cosmetic treatment options.
How long do the results last?
The length of time that dermal fillers last depends on a range of factors and the type of filler. In general, the results should last anywhere from 6 to 18 months if the aftercare instructions are followed closely.
