Should I Consider Dermal Fillers?

Nov 16, 2015 | Blog

Dermal FillerAs we get older, our collagen naturally begins to thin out, making our skin less elastic and more fragile. The production of natural oils also decreases, which causes your skin to be dry and increase the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Dermal fillers can efficiently take care of unwanted lines with little to no pain. Besides removing pesky laugh lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers can also restore your skin’s smoothness and give you a natural look you’ll absolutely love. The treatment is quick, recovery time is minimal, and results are visible after the first treatment. Find out if dermal fillers are the right treatment for you.

Types of Dermal Fillers

There are many types of dermal fillers to choose from when it comes to getting the best treatment suited for you. The range goes from temporary fillers to permanent fillers.

  • Temporary Fillers: These include collagen-based fillers, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, and calcium hydroxylapatite fillers, which are all natural and quite effective.
  • Semi-Permanent Fillers: These are a bit more longer-lasting and typically treat deeper lines with occasional fills every several weeks.
  • Permanent Fillers: These are used for areas that have thicker skin, not for around the eyes or lips.
