About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that are injected into the skin to restore lost volume and make your skin appear smoother and hydrated. They are approved by the US FDA to be used for anti-aging. They are composed of various materials such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, polylactic acid, and PMMA that are safe to be injected into the skin.
How Does Dermal Filler Treatment Work
Loss of supporting tissue in the skin due to aging or other factors such as sun damage can develop wrinkles or folds. These factors can also cause the skin to lose volume and appear sunken in certain areas, such as under the eyes and cheeks. This can also be due to the natural bone structure, sometimes irrespective of age. A dermal filler fills up this fold or sunken space and hydrates it with the material it is composed of. This added volume makes the skin looks revitalized and younger too.
- Dermal filler treatment is the best treatment solution if you have moderate to severe wrinkles or folds on the skin, such as smile lines (laughter lines), nose to mouth lines, Marionette lines, etc.
- Shadowed or sunken areas such as the hollow under the eyes or sunken cheeks can be filled up and made to look plumper and rejuvenated.
- The treatment smoothens the skin and gives it a glossy, healthy, and young look.
- The results can last up to 24 months depending on the type of filler used.
- They can also be used to enhance facial contours.
- Plumps thin lips, lifting up the cheeks or chin, etc. can be done as per the need.
After the fillers are administered in the skin, the improvements can be noticed almost instantly. Unlike other treatments, you don’t have to wait to enjoy the benefits of the treatment.
Once the fillers are injected, they immediately increase the volume under the skin, thereby smoothening the wrinkles and lines in the target area.
Depending on the number of injections, the procedure can be completed in as quickly as 10 minutes. You can even have the treatment done during the lunch break and go back to work right after. As the procedure is non-invasive and doesn’t involve surgery, it doesn’t require you to take the time off. There might be some swelling, but it subsides within a few days.
The general risks involved are swelling, bruising, and redness at the site of the injection, which disappears gradually within a few days. Facial asymmetry is a possible risk, but it depends on the expertise of the dermatologist.
With the highly experienced and trained staff at Keha, this is not a risk you should worry about.
The length of the effective period of fillers depends on the type of filler used, the patient and the target area for treatment. Some fillers can last for several years while most last for 6-18 months.
For first-time users, it is recommended to use the ones with shorter duration to confirm whether you like this new look. You can then go for the fillers with a long result span.
