Are Fillers Right for Me?

Are Fillers Right for Me?

Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show 2.6 million dermal filler injections administered in our country in 2018. That’s quite a bit of dermal filler activity, so you may be wondering: How do I know if dermal fillers are right for me?

At Skin Med Spa, we want to take the mystery out of improving your complexion and appearance. If your face is starting to show signs of aging, we are here to help with the right dermal filler for you.

Here’s what you need to know:

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft tissue, cosmetic injectables that help restore volume and fullness to your face to reverse the signs of aging. As we get older, we naturally lose volume in our skin, causing our skin to become saggy and loose, while wrinkles and lines become more prominent.

When a medical provider injects a filler underneath your skin, it improves the contours of your face and stimulates the production of collagen to help your skin appear younger and healthier.

Types of fillers available at Skin Med Spa include Juvéderm®, Revanesse® Versa™, Restylane®, and more. These fillers include substances such as hyaluronic acid, poly-l-lactic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, polymethylmethacrylate, and autologous fat. The specific filler we use for you will depend on your individual situation, including exactly what area of your face you want to fill in.

How do I know if fillers will work for me?

Injectable fillers work well for people who want to reduce signs of aging on their face. This includes lines, folds, and wrinkles that appear — the fillers can add volume here and help replace lost collagen.

If you have nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines, that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth, dermal fillers can fill in these creases. Fillers can also restore volume to your cheeks if your skin there is sagging, and they can help fade acne scars and add volume, structure, and shape to your lips if they are too thin.

Most injectable treatments are fairly quick, meaning you can fit an appointment in over your lunch hour. Results last anywhere from 6-24 months, depending on the type of filler you have injected and how quickly your body absorbs the filler substance over time. 

If you have lost confidence and self-esteem as a result of these signs of aging, it’s time to right that wrong with injectable fillers that can restore your youthful appearance. Just contact our office by calling, filling out the contact form on our site, or requesting an appointment online. You’ll be looking at a new face in the mirror in no time!
