WHAT ARE FILLERS?
Fillers belong to a class of injectables used for treating severe facial wrinkles and folds. They are composed of hyaluronic acid which naturally exists in our body and can be found in large quantities between the cells. It provides skin its youthful suppleness and moisture. Unfortunately, the natural levels of hyaluronic acid in our body decrease with age and the facial muscles get closer to the surface of the skin resulting in increased appearance of wrinkles and smile lines.
In the treatment using fillers, the lost hyaluronic acid is rejuvenated back into the skin restoring the lost volume and smoothening unsightly wrinkles.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED BY FILLERS?
Fillers are highly effective in treating all areas of the face, including lines and creases around the mouth, nose, forehead and temples. It is also helpful in the treatment of re-contouring cheeks, jawline, chin and improving the size and shape of lips.
They can be used for facial contouring as well as to enhance the appearance of scars, such as the ones caused by acne.
HOW FAST DOES TREATMENT WORK?
The results of the treatment are instant. But, the appearance of the treated area takes time to improve, generally a few days.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?
The treatment lasts anywhere from 6 to 24 months depending upon the brand
ARE DERMAL FILLERS SAFE?
The risks associated with dermal fillers are minimal, majority of which can be avoided by choosing an experienced injector.
Fillers are FDA approved for immediate smoothening of both moderate and severe wrinkles along with providing a plump to the lips. They restore the lost volume in patients for a fresher and more youthful appearance.
