What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, or “injectable fillers,” are injected into the skin to fill in deep lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume, reduce folds on the face, and enhance certain facial features, such as sculpting your cheekbones or plumping your lips. 

Fillers are used to restore a smooth, firm appearance to the skin. The results are a youthful, more refreshed appearance. 

Dermal fillers work with the body’s natural production of collagen to achieve natural, younger-looking skin. Results of filler injections vary depending on the filler used and the area being treated. 

Our expert team at Skincredible Dermatology will work with you to address your unique concerns and will recommend the perfect combination of filler during your consultation to help you achieve your aesthetic and budget goals. 

With precision injections and a wide range of dermal filler options, our physicians can address any concerns you may have.

How do Fillers Work?

Most commonly, dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, which exists naturally within the body. The filler material works to revitalize the skin, add volume in targeted areas, and diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

Who Should Get Dermal Filler?

As we age, the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin decreases. This decrease in the skin’s natural chemicals causes the appearance of lines, loose skin, and wrinkles. Age-related bone loss can also cause changes to the jawline, the nose, and cheekbones. As facial muscles decrease in volume and elasticity, the face appears to “deflate,” contributing to visible signs of aging.

Unlike surgical procedures, dermal fillers are minimally-invasive and produce effective results in patients of all ages. 

Are there any immediate side effects of fillers?

The side effects of dermal fillers administered by professional dermatologists are minimal. Our team at Skincredible Dermatology ensures that procedures are comfortable and follow all recommended safety and hygiene guidelines for filler injections. 

Any side effects associated with dermal fillers are typically mild and minimal. Common side effects include bruising and swelling at the treatment site while some patients also experience temporary redness near areas of filler injections. For any other questions concerning dermal filler side effects, reach out to our experts at Skincredible Dermatology and consult your physician before administering any injectable treatments. 

Are the Effects of Fillers Permanent?

The effects and results of dermal fillers depend on the product being used, the area being treated, and the patient’s unique metabolism. Typically, the effects of dermal fillers can last anywhere between three months and two years.

Fillers that provide a natural and youthful look will eventually be absorbed by the body. The most common product used for dermal injection fillers is Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that dissolves over time. At Skincredible Dermatology, our team uses high-quality fillers to ensure our clients’ safety and maximum treatment benefits.
