What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that fill and smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles, plump the lips and restore fullness to the cheeks. Improved appearance is achieved by restoring volume loss that naturally occurs as you age. Dermal fillers have an indispensable role in the cosmetic treatment of the face, both in the filling in of depressed acne and surgical scars and in reducing the depth and prominence of signs of intrinsic and photoaging. There are several types of dermal fillers on the market, including Juvederm and Restylane, administered at Brentwood Dermatology.
Who Should Avoid Dermal Fillers?
Most people are suitable candidates for dermal fillers. However, fillers should be avoided by those who:
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Know they are allergic to products in the filler
- Have an active infection or skin inflammation
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
The results can last from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler and the individual’s rate of metabolization. The results from dermal filler injection are immediate and you should expect to see your final result within 7-10 days.
