What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler injection is a material injected underneath the skin which plump the area injected while smoothing wrinkles. Unlike botox, which is mostly for the top half of the face, dermal fillers are used for the bottom half. The main areas generally are in the nasolabial folds, the oral commissures, and the marionete lines, which are areas that frame the teeth and mouth.
There are a few types of dermal fillers such as Hyaluronic acide like Juvederm and Restylane fillers. These fillers look very natural and can also be used for lip augmentation.
How long a dermal filler last depends on what kind of dermal filler is used. It ranges from six months, a year, or permanet based on the filler. Please consult with your doctor to determine what fillers are best for you.
