What Are Dermal Fillers?
Soft tissue fillers or dermal fillers are injectables that are used to restore some of that fullness in the face. As we get older we will start to lose some of that subcutaneous fat that we once had that made our faces look full. We will lose our babyface. This will make lines in our faces like crows feet and laugh lines more noticeable. Dermal fillers will help to restore some of that fullness.
What Do Dermal Fillers Do?
Dermal fillers are great for making your face look rejuvenated. They add fullness to your face so that you look your best. Here are some of the things that injectable fillers can do for you:
- Add fullness to the lips
- Eliminate lines in the face
- Soften Facial Creases
- Add fullness back to the hands
How long Do Dermal Fillers in the Face Last?
There is some question as to how long dermal fillers last. The short answer is that it depends. A longer explanation is that there are different types of dermal fillers. Restylane and Perlane are hyaluronic acid fillers that last between six months and a full year. Another dermal filler known as Juvederm Voluma has been proven to last for a longer period of time. They have shown evidence of lasting for up to two years.
What are the Side Effects of Facial Fillers?
There are some side effects that result from dermal fillers. They are generally mild but below is a list of the side effects to look out for with dermal fillers.:
