Dermal Fillers and Their Unique Role in the Anti-Aging Wrinkle-Removing Saga

Injectable cosmetic fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are substances used to replace, complement or enhance soft tissue in the skin for the purpose of reducing wrinkles, in some cases for periods of more than 18 months.

Although most of these fillers are eventually absorbed by the body, and your wrinkles will return, at our dental clinic we specialize in using the perfect dosages of some of the most effective cheek fillers on the market, in order to achieve maximum satisfaction.

How Are Dermal Fillers Different from Botox?

Injectable fillers do precisely what their name suggest. Unlike substances such as Botox, these are not merely injections that have a chemical effect when it comes to playing a role in making wrinkles disappear. Instead, they are used as actual fillers that fill in a precisely determined area under the skin, and can remain there for a prolonged period of time to overcome the effects of aging skin.

These fillers can last significantly longer than the 3-6 month period commonly associated with the best anti wrinkle injections. At the same time.

Problems Dermal Fillers Fix

• Thin lips can be enhanced, along with shallow contours and other features that would normally fade into the background.
• At the same time, dermal fillers have a way of effectively softening facial creases, lines and wrinkles.
• Cheeks can be augmented to enhance their shape, in some cases to the point where they look extremely youthful.
• Scars resulting from acne or chicken pox can be made to appear smoother.
• The procedure can also effectively fill hollows (depression areas) under the eyes, giving you a more energized and youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermal Fillers

Q: Should I go for synthetic or natural fillers?

A: Although natural fillers are less likely to lead to allergies, since they mainly consist of hyaluronic acid derived from animals, the fillers only last for up to 18 months. Synthetic fillers, on the other hand, are semi-permanent, and your wrinkles will only return over time due to sun damage or because your face continues to age.

Q: Can these treatments replace a facelift or brow lift?

A: These treatments are no substitute for cosmetic surgery. However, in some cases, they can be a value-added component of facial rejuvenation surgery.

Q: What are the risks in using dermal fillers?

A: It is essential to only choose clinics such as ours, that are certified and specialize using wrinkle filler treatments such as these. Failure to do so could result in improper use of these injections which could rapidly lead to bruising, pain, itching and, less commonly, infections or allergic reactions.

Q: What materials are used?

A: Fillers are most commonly made from sugar molecules, collagens and other essential compounds such as biosynthetic polymers.
