What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin to help to reduce lines and restore volume to the face. There are a variety of fillers, made of different ingredients that you can select depending on your goals and lifestyle. Here are a few types of dermal fillers.

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA): This is a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps keep your skin hydrated. These fillers are temporary, lasting between 6-12 months before your body naturally absorbs them.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA): Also a naturally occurring substance, this filler lasts a little longer than HA and can help stimulate natural collagen production.

There are a lot of dermal fillers on the market, but Premier Cosmetic Surgery plastic surgeons in Delaware will help you decide what fillers you need for what sections of your face.

What Do Dermal Fillers Do?

Dermal fillers are used to temporarily soften lines and wrinkles, enhance contours of the face, and give your skin a more youthful appearance. They provide immediate results with little recovery. You may experience mild irritation, swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness, but can resolve in a few hours. They can be combined with other procedures so you spend less time under the knife and more time enjoying your newfound youthfulness!

What Kind of Filler Do I Need?

The filler that you get is dependent on what problems you would like to be addressed and the area the problems are in.
