Dermal fillers are a popular facial rejuvenation treatment that can help restore lost volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, and improve facial contours. More than 1 million men and women annually choose this cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime. Injectable dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to fill thin lips, improve surface contours, smooth facial folds, remove wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars. Dermal fillers are designed to create a softer or fuller appearance, or both.
The FDA regulates dermal fillers as medical devices, and the effects of most FDA-approved dermal fillers are temporary because they are made of materials that are eventually broken down and absorbed by the body. It may be necessary to repeat the injection procedure to maintain the desired effect. Injectable fillers can address a number of common problems, such as softening deep dark circles, lifting cheekbones, giving volume to lips, smoothing lip lines and nasolabile folds (the folds that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth), and rejuvenating the hands. Each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density and depth of injection, meaning that certain fillers work better for certain areas of interest.
In most cases, injectable fillers are used to treat scarring, sagging skin or facial wrinkles, fat loss, volume or for people with high soft tissue contours of the face. Fat injections are somewhat unpredictable in their duration and vary from patient to patient and the location of the injection. Regardless of the material (whether synthetic or organic), the duration of the filling depends largely on the amount of activity in the region where it is injected. Whoever you choose, make sure your provider has proven experience in cosmetic medicine, as well as substantial training and experience in performing filler injections.
With the help of a qualified and experienced provider, injectable fillers can provide natural-looking enhancements to help you feel more confident in your appearance. One of the most popular types of injectable filler is polylactic acid. This synthetic dermal filler is injected into the face and causes the body's own production of collagen. The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin is an injectable filler of purified protein that is approved by the FDA for the temporary treatment of frown lines.
The filler injection under the skin lifts the skin, resulting in younger facial contours and a rejuvenated appearance. Injecting dermal fillers into the face and hands can improve the appearance of facial lines and volume loss caused by age or certain medical conditions.When considering injectable filler, it's important to choose a provider with proven experience in cosmetic medicine as well as substantial training and experience in performing filler injections. With their help, you can achieve natural-looking enhancements that will help you feel more confident in your appearance.
