Fillers are Your Friend!
- Posted on: May 15 2018
It may seem like everyone and their mother (and father!) is getting dermal filler treatment these days. Injectables have become so popular that even the younger generation of adults is engaging in this beauty trend. Maybe you feel a little behind the power curve and are interested in seeing a fresher face when you look in the mirror, but you’ve got questions that need to be answered before you can put both feet into the dermal filler pool. Let’s see if we can help you with those.
Common Questions about Dermal Fillers
What exactly are dermal fillers, anyway?
There are several dermal filler products on the market, and many of them contain hyaluronic acid. This sugar compound exists naturally in the body, so it is readily absorbed when introduced into superficial tissue. Other ingredients that are included in dermal fillers include poly-l-lactic acid and Calcium Hydroxylapatite. While key ingredients may differ, each dermal filler product is intended for wrinkle reduction by adding volume and structure beneath the skin.
How can dermal fillers rejuvenate my face?
Dermal fillers are used to correct a variety of age-related concerns. Ultimately, by restoring volume to superficial tissue, dermal fillers improve the contours of the face to preserve the inverted triangle shape that characterizes youthfulness. Some of the targeted uses of dermal fillers include cheek contouring, lower eyelid rejuvenation (eliminating puffiness and dark circles), and lip rejuvenation through augmentation (eliminating lines around the mouth and adding volume to the lips).
Will dermal fillers make me look unnatural?
We can see how the widespread use of dermal fillers among celebrities has created the illusion that dermal fillers might alter natural appearance. Generally, this does not happen. The objective of treatment is to soften lines and add subtle volume so the face looks naturally younger, not “done.”
How much does dermal filler treatment cost?
There are a few variables that determine the final cost of dermal filler treatment. These include the product that is selected and the amount of product that is used to achieve the desired outcome. The cost of treatment is somewhat in your hands. Remember, you do not have to treat every concern at once. We can help you tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs, preferences, and budget.
