What Are Dermal Fillers
Dermal filler is a clear gel like substance made of Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a part of the skin’s own collagen. Young and healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of HA which hydrates the skin from the inside by attracting water molecules. As we age, the amount of HA in our skin reduces, creating undesirable facial lines and deep folds.
Dermal filler injections into the skin and underlying tissues, plump out the lines, restore the lost volume, stimulate collagen production and provide internal hydration.
The longevity of dermal fillers can vary depending on the type of filler used and the area treated. Generally, results can last from 6 months to over a year. It’s important to discuss the expected duration of results with your practitioner during the consultation.
Patients may experience mild discomfort during the injection, but dermal filler procedures often include a numbing agent either within the filler itself or applied topically. Some clinics also offer additional local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. Common side effects include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. More serious complications are rare but can include allergic reactions or filler migration. It’s crucial to have these treatments performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner.
Most hyaluronic acid-based fillers can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This allows for adjustments or complete reversal of the filler if needed. However, it’s important to discuss this possibility and the associated risks with your practitioner.
