Dermal Fillers

We often see celebrities endorsing products that claim plumper lips, wrinkle-free skin and much more. However, when you age and your skin begins to sag, it is completely out of the means of creams and face masks to fix the problem. Ageing is a natural process of the body losing its elasticity due to the decreased production of collagen. Therefore a few external skin enhancers will not result in a blemish-free and tight skin. It can show temporary results, but your skin will ultimately return to its relaxed form.

So with time, there came a new solution to add more volume to your facial appearance known as Dermal Fillers. These fillers give the opportunity to add volume and structure to your face and smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles that make your skin look less fresh. It can take care of cases such as marionette lines, acne, vertical lip lines, Crow’s feet on the corner of your eye, smile lines, and even parentheses.

What are Areas of the Body That Can Use Dermal Fillers?

Typically, most people get Dermal fillers to enhance their facial features, such as your nose, cheeks, temples, lips, chin, and even your jaw. These areas are more prone to wrinkles and lines and thus, the ideal spot for fillers. They say the first look of a person’s face really shows their age, so the idea is to eliminate those easy tells. Dermal Fillers can be used around your cheeks to uplift your smile or reduce wrinkles caused by your eyes when you squint. Teenagers these days are especially aware that the most popular of all Dermal fillers are the lip fillers. The popular trend of bolder and fuller lips that help any lipsticks make a statement is why everyone wants to get their lips filled.  


If your imperfections affect your self-confidence, you could try Derma Fillers. They can last you a few months and are perfect if you want to see if the results are something you want to commit to in the future. Not all, in-fact very rarely are Dermal fillers permanent. So it is not a huge commitment or concern in the long run.

What Makes Me a Good Candidate For Dermal Fillers?

There is not a vast restriction list for who classifies as a ‘good’ candidate for Dermal Fillers since it is overall considered a minimal risk procedure. The body starts losing collagen and elasticity at the age of 25 and produces almost none till your late twenties. That is when the ageing factors start to kick in. Therefore your early thirties are the perfect time for you to slash off a few of those years from your face and look younger. Nonetheless, you can even get them sooner if you feel like your skin is no longer looking as taught as it used to. Now for lip and jaw dermal injections, there are no real age guidelines. All you have to do is be sure of the procedure you want to get and be prepared for what you’re signing up. 

When to Avoid Dermal Fillers?

Although anyone can make a good candidate for getting dermal fillers, there are certain times when it’s better to avoid them. Some situations when you should not seek out Dermal fillers are in the case of any Dental procedure you may have had, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or if you face any form of infection around your facial features such as a sinus infection. Such infections can be risky because the infection can spread to the location of the fillers. 

What are the Expected Results of Dermal Fillers?

Different Dermal fillers have different results; that’s how they work with almost every surgical procedure. Everyone’s body has a different rate of healing itself as well as taking foreign invasions. The swelling, redness and bruising after the procedure is completely natural and should not be concerning. In case you were wondering about the noticeable results. Sometimes the filler might cause little tiny bumps under the skin, but this too fades over time to become more natural.  

Dermal fillers can approximately take two weeks to settle and show desired results completely. These can last you anywhere from six to eighteen months, but that changes depending on what type of filler was used.


Products are what make a huge impact on how your Dermal fillers will look and last. It might seem a little complicated at first, but you and your cosmetic surgeon need to outline which area you want to target and select the appropriate filler. The various parts of the face need different formulas of fillers. A variety of formulas are necessary because not all wrinkles and lines need the exact volume or lift. Just like your lips might not need as dense of a formula as your cheeks or deep smile lines. To cater to each area with precision is why dermatologists use different formulas of fillers.

So let’s get into which product does what. The ingredients for these fillers include Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA), Poly-L-lactic Acid and Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). Each of these formulas has constituents that target the problematic areas by stimulating collagen production or providing structure and firmness.

HA, is a substance that already exists in your skin; it uses it to plump and hydrate the skin. These fillers are normally gel-like secretion and are generally softer than other filler formulas. These are some of the most temporary options of them all and used for people with no prior filler experience. It is infused with lidocaine, which reduces the irritation before and after the surgery. Several different types of HA fillers are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). These can be used in Dermal fillers treatments such as Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.

The second on the list, being the CaHA also exists naturally. It is usually found in our bones. The calcium elements are almost nano-sized particles that are held in place by the gel surrounding it. This filler is considerably a thicker emulsion than the HA, which is why it is used for deeper lines and wrinkles. It also lasts a little longer than the HA.

Poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible and biodegradable substance that has also previously been used for stitches. The words’ biocompatible’ and ‘biodegradable’ describe its capability of being harmless to the body. These are normally used to smooth out fine lines and stimulate collagen buildup. It is also used for deeper skin wrinkles that can last more than two years.

Lastly, we have the PMMA, which is synthetic yet biocompatible. PMMA contains collagen, unlike stimulating it like the other formulas. The purpose is the same; it gives more structure and durability. PMMA exists in the form of a microspherical ball beneath your skin to give long term support.

So now that you have done your research for Dermal fillers, you know the real formulation and reasoning behind it all. Insecurities will now never get the best of you when you know you have a solution, only a doctor’s visit away. The next time you fail to understand how someone keeps their face looking like they are not ageing a day in their life, you will know what their real secret is.
