What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are primarily used to restore lost volume to the skin and facial soft tissues. The process involves injecting a carefully measured amount of filler to the target area, altering its shape and volume for subtle results.
Common areas that are enhanced include:
- The nasolabial folds (where the upper lip and cheek meet)
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Tear troughs
- Creases that form along the forehead and upper bridge of the nose
Our dermal fillers are also frequently utilized to “plump” and enhance the volume of patients’ lips. But they can also restore lost volume to the cheeks and temples. In addition, dermal fillers can stimulate your skin’s natural collagen growth, which may help prevent the formation of wrinkles and folds in the future. It is no surprise that they only continue to grow in popularity each year.
Types of Dermal Fillers
At Gabbay Plastic Surgery, we offer patients a range of carefully selected dermal fillers. During your consultation, we work with you to develop a plan that uses the best-matched fillers for your needs. Whatever your goals are, there is a dermal filler that can work for you. Below is a quick overview of the types of fillers we offer.
HYALURONIC WRINKLE FILLERS
Hyaluronic acid filler results last from several months to over a year, depending upon the composition of the specific filler. Studies have shown that repeated injections may help to stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen, meaning that eventually, less filler will be needed to achieve the same look.
Hyaluronic wrinkle fillers include:
COLLAGEN WRINKLE FILLERS
The original collagen-based dermal fillers produced excellent results; however, because they were made from an animal source, they had a higher rate of allergic reactions. Newer methods for processing the collagen, along with the formulation of synthetic collagen fillers have made these injections safer and more widely applicable.
Some of the most common collagen-based dermal fillers include:
SYNTHETIC WRINKLE FILLERS
This category of wrinkle fillers is comprised of lab-made substances, many of which offer longer-lasting (sometimes permanent) filling of lines and creases.
Some of the most common synthetic dermal fillers include:
These require little commitment as the results fade quicker. They are a great entry point to dermal fillers, allowing you to find the best look for yourself.
This longer-lasting option is perfect for patients who have a goal in mind but still prefer not having the weight of long-term commitment.
Permanent Dermal Fillers
These fillers can last years or longer. They are best for patients who have decided on a long-term look.
These fillers seek to restore lost volume. They are injected beneath the skin and occupy space to provide shape and contour. Ex: Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero.
These fillers encourage your body to produce new collagen and soft-tissue growth. Ex: Radiesse, Sculptra.
For non-permanent dermal fillers, you will need occasional touchups to maintain your results. Many patients also take this opportunity to adjust their treatment to further match their ideal aesthetic or try out new ideas.
