Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that restore volume to aging skin or add volume to naturally thin areas. As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin, which provide the structural foundation for your skin. As the production of these proteins diminishes, your skin begins to develop deep lines and sag. The loss of fat in your face and hands further pronounces this effect, leaving you with a more hollowed look on your face and craggy look to your hands.
With dermal fillers, the team at Qvita Health & Wellness can restore volume, giving you back the fuller, more vibrant look of youth.
What areas can dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers are a great solution for the sagging and lined skin on the bottom half of your face. Areas where dermal fillers are very effective include:
- Nasolabial folds (the parentheses around your nose and mouth)
- Vertical lines around your mouth
- Thinning lips
- Tear troughs
Dermal fillers are great for plumping up naturally thin lips, which may have nothing to do with your age.
As well, your hands are some of the first areas on your body to show the definitive signs of aging and dermal fillers can help smooth over the boney look.
If you have any other area you’d like to address, just ask about off-label uses.
What fillers are available?
Qvita Health & Wellness offers a variety of different dermal fillers, including:
The Juvéderm line of dermal fillers relies on hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body, to restore volume to your cheeks and lips and diminish deep lines and wrinkles on the bottom half of your face.
Restylane contains hyaluronic acid and Peggy uses this product to fill in the deep lines around your nose and mouth and add volume to your lips.
Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that are suspended in an aqueous gel carrier, which fill in your nasolabial folds and add volume to your hands.
This injectable is a hyaluronic acid filler that integrates into your skin tissue to fill in the lines in more dynamic areas, such as around your mouth, for a more natural look.
When will I see results and how long do they last?
Two of the best advantages of dermal fillers are that your results are fairly immediate and you’re free to get back to your normal routine right away.
Dermal fillers typically last from one to two years, depending upon which is chosen based on your specific needs.
