Many outward signs of aging on your face can be traced back to loss of volume. Facial tissues get thinner and fat stores disappear, causing lines and wrinkles to appear and creating a hollow look in the cheeks and under the eyes. Dermal fillers can be used to replace lost volume, smooth wrinkles, and restore a younger appearance. Dermal fillers are an easy, cost effective way to look younger and improve your appearance without expensive surgery and downtime.
What Are Fillers Used For?
Dermal fillers are a versatile tool that can be used to address several issues, including the following:
- Smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, nose, forehead, and mouth
- Diminish vertical lines around the lips
- Restore volume to cheeks, temples, and fill hollows under the eyes
- Plump lips
- Improve overall facial symmetry
How Long Do Results Last?
Results vary depending upon the composition of the filler. Hyaluronic acid fillers, and Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers are eventually absorbed by the body but results last anywhere from 6-12 months. Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) fillers are permanent injections of microscopic “balls” that stay beneath the skin to provide continued volume and support. Each different filler is formulated to address specific concerns; the texture, density, and injection depth will affect the function and success of each product. Your doctor will work with you to decide which filler is right for you.
