Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. It helps keep skin plump and hydrated. HA fillers are typically soft and gel-like. The results are temporary, lasting from 6 to 24 months before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles. It varies from person to person because it depends on the brand and type of filler, the amount and depth of filler injected, and your own body’s metabolism.
Injectable Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal Fillers are indicated for deep and superficial lines and wrinkles. We inject these fillers into the skin to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and improve volume loss.
As we age, sun exposure, gravity and other factors can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid and collagen in our skin and as a result our faces naturally lose volume and develop deeper creases and folds. This loss of volume also distorts the proportions and symmetry of our face changing our youthful heart shaped face to an upside-down V or jowled appearance.
Restore lost volume and fullness with anti-wrinkle dermal fillers at Desert Derma Medspa in Peoria, AZ!
At Desert Derma, we offer the Versa®, Restylane® and Juvéderm® lines of Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers.
During your consult, you will be assessed for volume loss in your upper and lower face. Restoring volume in the cheeks helps the appearance of the undereye, lifts the area that creates nasolabial folds, and creates the jowling. Restoring the upper/mid face volume improves the entire face.
Dermal fillers are also used to restore volume and soften wrinkles around the mouth, plump the lips, and add volume to other areas of the face. Augmentation of chin and jaw are used to improve profile and provide structure to the face.
What are fillers?
Fillers are injections that add volume to the face and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. They work creating fullness in areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging or other factors. Common fillers include hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.
What are the most common areas treated with fillers?
The most common areas treated with fillers include the cheeks, lips, under-eye area, jawline, and the lines around the mouth and nose.
How long do filler results last?
The duration of filler results can vary depending on the type used and the individual’s skin. The effects of hyaluronic acid fillers typically last 6-12 months, while poly-L-lactic acid fillers can last up to 2 years.
Are there any side effects associated with filler treatments?
As with any medical procedure, there is a risk of side effects associated with filler treatments. These may include redness, swelling, pain, or bruising at the injection site. It’s important to consult with your practitioner about the treatment’s potential risks and side effects.
