What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to enhance and restore facial volume. They can also be used on areas such as the backs of the hands. Dermal fillers come in a range of materials, each with different properties. The most popular and widely used is hyaluronic acid, a hydrating compound found naturally in your skin. Fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® use hyaluronic acid to plump and smooth your skin. 

What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

Dermal fillers are used to treat a variety of concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Deep wrinkles such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds
  • Loss of volume on the backs of the hands
  • Thin or undefined lips
  • Fine lines around the lips
  • Loss of volume in the cheeks

Different fillers are appropriate for different uses, allowing your expert injector to smooth and define your features with precision and artistry.

What is the Best Age to Start Dermal Fillers?

While you can have dermal fillers at any age, you may wonder if there are advantages to starting sooner rather than later. There is no “best” age to start getting dermal fillers because they are used for so many purposes. An individual in their early 20s might be interested in lip fillers or other subtle enhancements, while an individual in their 50s might want to address volume loss and wrinkles. 

The best answer to this question is that you should start dermal fillers whenever a facial concern starts to bother you enough to address it. Whether this includes the added volume you have always wanted or a way to fight signs of aging depends on your goals and what makes you feel confident. 

Is There Any Downtime After Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler injections are quick, and many formulas contain a numbing agent. You can return to your regular activities, including work, with no downtime. You may notice minor swelling, bruising, or redness in the area that lasts up to a few days. Dermal fillers fit conveniently into busy schedules for facial rejuvenation on a lunch break. 

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The lasting time of a dermal filler depends on how dense and firm it is. Fillers used for areas like the cheeks are the most resilient and can last up to two years, while fillers used in the lips and around the mouth are more flexible and tend to last six months to a year. Each person’s body responds differently and will have different results.
