Derma Fillers


 

 


A dermal filler is a substance which is injected into the skin to plump it up, making it firmer and smoothing out lines and wrinkles.

There are many fillers on the market these days, but the most popular and in-demand product is Perlane-L from Medicis Pharmaceuticals. Perlane-L is a synthetically produced non-animal product consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of all our organs and tissues. Other dermal fillers I use are Restylane-L, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and Artefill.

Dermal fillers are extremely safe with a low incidence of allergic reaction. You can expect some degree of redness and swelling after the treatment, which usually clears up within 1-2 days.

Dermal fillers are used to fill out lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nose, and cheeks and can even be effective for smoothing out scars. Fillers are very popular for giving the lips a fuller look, and for giving the lip better definition and reduction in lipstick bleed. Fillers are also very effective for facial contouring – for example, cheek and chin dimples – can be achieved using dermal fillers to smooth out the hollows and alter the facial contour.

Restylane-L typically last six to eight months and Perlane-L typically last up to 12 month, but this may vary from one person to another. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will gradually return to their previous appearance without touch-up treatments. The fillers help build collagen and are hydrophilic, which means your own water molecules will gravitate to the area where the filler is placed, giving you even more improved results after two weeks. If you keep up the fillers on a regular basis, you will be able to go longer in between treatments and possibly use less filler than initially.
