Dermal fillers are a cosmetic enhancement meant to smooth lines on your face, correct wrinkles and skin folds, and increase fullness of cheeks, eyes, jawline, and lips. As a non-surgical procedure, dermal filler injections can enhance a person's facial features while also making them appear younger. Results can be expected immediately and typically last for a year or more, depending on the type of filler and where it is located on the body.
As you age, your body sheds collagen, which helps your skin stay firm and voluminous. With decreased collagen, your skin becomes more elastic and begins to sag. The use of dermal fillers is on the rise, with 3+ million Americans receiving them annually. Regarding the type of fillers available, there are two options. The first is to use synthetic fillers manufactured from manmade materials while the second option is to use fat from your body to inject into the area of the body being treated. The second option, known as tautologous fat grafting, is taking fat from one area of the body and inserting it into a different part.
During a dermal filler procedure, you'll be given an anesthetic to numb the area being treated before a thin needle is used to inject the fill material under the skin. Depending on the type of treatment being received, the procedure could take as little as 10 minutes or more than an hour. Immediately after a dermal filler procedure, your skin will be cleansed and an ice pack will likely be applied to combat inflammation and residual pain which is usually minor.
