Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK (AND HOW THEY’RE DIFFERENT FROM BOTOX)?
Dermal fillers are a naturally-derived or synthetic material that is directly injected into skin with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone. Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years; for semi-permanent or permanent fillers, the effects can last up to five years, and there are reports of even longer-lasting results.
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS USED TO FIX?
Dermal fillers can be used to fix a variety of concerns related to facial aging, including:
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SYNTHETIC AND NATURAL DERMAL FILLERS?
There are two primary groups of dermal fillers: synthetic and natural.
RISKS FROM DERMAL FILLERS?
After all is said and done, the major issue for fillers is one of longevity, followed by risk of migration and lumping, and ultimately the skill of the doctor in placing the right amount of filler in exactly the right place. Regardless of the material, there is a learning curve to injection techniques as well as understanding how the varying substances affect skin. That means you need to find a doctor who has been injecting dermal fillers for some time, and who has loads of experience, preferably with more than one type of filler. Most people considering fillers have more than one area of concern fillers can address — and different fillers are available to specifically treat those concerns, such as lines around the mouth.
IS THERE A BEST DERMAL FILLER?
Despite what you might have read or heard, there really isn't a best dermal filler; all of them have risks, albeit rare ones. Which filler substance is considered "best" or "preferred" depends on the doctor’s technique, skill, experience, training, your facial needs, and risk tolerance. It has nothing to do with headlines in the media or articles in fashion magazines.
WHEN TO GET DERMAL FILLERS?
There’s every reason to consider dermal fillers to correct signs of aging that are beyond what skincare products can do. It's not that great skincare can't make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin (believe us, we know the remarkable benefits a state-of-the-art skincare routine can provide) but age, muscle movement, fat loss, gravity, and sun damage among other factors will eventually take their toll. Without question, fillers can help improve the appearance of deep lines and give skin a more supple, youthful appearance in ways that skincare simply cannot.
