How do dermal fillers work?
As people age, they loose volume in their cheeks and lips, which can make them look older and haggard. Dermal fillers are injected in to the target area to provide immediate fullness. Dermal fillers can be used to make the lips look fuller, give the cheeks a youthful appearance, and reduce the appearance of deep creases, such as the ones that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. While Botox is often used to treat the upper third of the face, dermal fillers are often use to improve the lower two thirds of your face. Many fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is produced naturally in the body. Some fillers also promote the production of collagen which helps your skin tone improve naturally.
How long do dermal fillers last?
One reason dermal fillers are popular is because they are long lasting. The specific amount of time your dermal fillers last will depend on the dermal filler you choose, but most dermal fillers last from 6 months to 2 years.
