What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are used in the cosmetic industry to eliminate wrinkles and restore volume in the face. Part of the natural aging process is a loss of the fat found in the face, which can lead to sunken cheeks and fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers reduce wrinkles by injecting a dose of hyaluronic acid into your skin. Hyaluronic acid is always present in your face, but its supply diminishes as you age, so your face is not able to retain the moisture it once was. By replenishing this hyaluronic acid, you will once again have smooth skin.
What can Dermal fillers be used for?
Dermal fillers can be used in a variety of ways to give you a younger appearance. At our Southington, Connecticut, medspa, we use dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles, specifically those found around your mouth and nose. We also rely on dermal fillers to plump up thin lips and add contouring and shaping to the mid-face area. By using a combination of dermal fillers, we can masterfully make your face look five or ten years younger—some of our Southington, CT patients say it’s even more.
Types of Dermal Fillers
All the dermal fillers we use in our Southington, Connecticut, medspa are composed of hyaluronic acid; however, that does not mean they are all the same. Each one is formulated slightly differently to serve a distinctive purpose. Some of them have longer staying power (Juvederm Voluma® XC), while others offer a more delicate touch (Restylane® Silk). We have extensive experience with each one and we will recommend the combination that we feel will best provide you with the results you desire. And since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, allergic reactions are nearly obsolete, so we can often perform your dermal filler injections on the same day as your consultation. The side effects of dermal fillers are minimal, with slight swelling to be expected, and touch-ups are required after varying amounts of time depending on the area treated and the dermal filler used.
