Types of facial fillers
Facial fillers include: (we do not do all of these-just types)
- Hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvederm, others). This natural component of the skin’s connective tissue is the most common filler used for wrinkles. The results typically last 6 to 12 months.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse). This filler is used to contour the jaw line, restore volume in the cheeks, and treat deeper wrinkles and skin folds. The results last up to a year when used for contouring and 3 years when used to fill wrinkles.
- Fat grafting. With this method, fat is removed from the lower abdomen or other area through liposuction. It is then injected through small incisions into the cheek, temple, lips or forehead. The effects might be permanent. But achieving the desired results usually requires more than one session as well as overfilling the site because the body reabsorbs some of the fat.
- Permanent soft tissue filler (Bellafill). This filler is used to smooth deep wrinkles around the mouth. The body can’t absorb this type of filler, so it doesn’t require reinjection. Permanent soft tissue filler generally isn’t recommended as a first-time facial filler treatment.
- Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra). This product is used to restore facial volume lost due to aging or illness. Two or three sessions are usually required. The effects last up to two years.
Why and How are fillers are used:
Dermal Fillers are to be used to enhance your lips, fill your cheeks, straighten out your jawline, soften grooves underneath your eyes, and many other cosmetic alterations to reduce the visible effects of aging. Dermal fillers do not fill in wrinkles but rather add volume to the desired area in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in your skin FDA-approved dermal fillers can last between six to 12 months before fading and requiring another injection. The lifespan and overall effectiveness of your treatment will depend on your physiological makeup.
How long Fillers last:
Most fillers last between six and 12 months before they are absorbed back into the skin and the results start to fade. Typically, most FDA-approved dermal fillers are also infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment.Injecting cosmetic dermal fillers will only take a short amount of time to complete. Following dermal fillers, most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. A complete set of instructions after the service is finished, you will be well informed about aftercare.
Where are fillers are best used:
Many people use them for their Lip area, filling and adding plump to their cheeks to pull up lines and wrinkles from below. Once injected, the lines and wrinkles appear more rejuvenated and younger in appearance to the eyes, and you will notice this instantly. This can be achieved in one consultation and visit to make you look years younger. Dermal Fillers are effective and long lasting. It is best to get a full consultation to arrive at a good decision and a professional opinion to get you your very best results.
