More About Facial Fillers
Dermal fillers are a safe, quick and an effective way to remove fine lines and wrinkles that provide a youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers used today are hyaluronic acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid, also called hyaluronan, is a naturally occurring substance that contributes to cell proliferation. It does not require skin testing because it is found in the body. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are made from bacterial proteins. The transparent gel is injected into the facial tissue to eliminate wrinkles and smooth folds.
Types of Fillers
Different injectable fillers do different things. Here are a few types:
- Ultra Plus
- Juvederm Voluma
- Juvederm Ultra
Filler Time Expectancy
Dermal fillers don't last forever. Different facial fillers last for different intervals of time, some last several months, some last up to a year, while others last even longer.
Over time, the natural solutions injected into the body begin to break down where the body will remove it naturally. Fortunately, many of our patients love their results enough that they opt to get subsequent treatments before their results wear off. That way they can enjoy their more youthful results longer.
You'll find calcium-based fillers instead of hyaluronic acid in markets these days, just ask your Bexley doctor. These new dermal fillers include Radiance/Radiesse, which is FDA approved and said to last up to 18 months.
Dermal fillers have come a long way in the past few decades. Technological advancements have proven effective in creating safer products to rejuvenate your skin. If you have any questions about cosmetic facial fillers, don't hesitate to call your doctor at Bexley Dermatology in Bexley, OH.
