What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler injection is a material injected underneath the skin to plump up various areas and smooth out wrinkles. Lip augmentation is also done with dermal fillers. Traditionally, plastic surgeon and dermatologist offices provide these services. Today these services can be provided by MDs, dentists, nurses and medical estheticians who work in a medical / dental office or medspa.
Generally, when you look at the world of esthetic injectable treatment, botulinum toxin (Botox Cosmetic) is generally for the top half of the face, and dermal fillers are for the bottom half. The main areas where dermal fillers are used in the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, the oral commissures, and marionette lines. Dermal fillers are gently placed in these areas through an extraoral injection right under these folds and creases to plump them up. By the way, these are exactly the same areas that you routinely inject. The only difference is that you typically inject these areas intraorally when you deliver local anesthesia.
Dermal Fillers Benefits
How Long Dermal Fillers Last?
Depending on the dermal filler used, the effects can last anywhere from six months until forever. There are temporary dermal fillers and permanent dermal fillers.
Typically, most health-care professionals shy away from permanent face fillers because if the filler is placed in an improper position, its permanence becomes a huge issue and liability. Most dermal fillers placed are temporary and dissolve in six to 18 months.
