What are Dermal Fillers and How Do They Work?

Dermal fillers add volume to areas of the face to replace lost volume, enhance or add fullness to your features, or fill out lines and wrinkles. At Skinatomy Laser Clinic, we offer several types of dermal fillers targeted to almost every part of the face so you can achieve your aesthetic goals.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers plump the skin and add volume to facial features. Many popular fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in the skin, but there are many other options. Skinatomy Laser Clinic has the best option available for each line, wrinkle, and facial feature by offering several of the most popular groups of dermal fillers. 

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

While some dermal fillers add immediate volume when injected, others act as a collagen scaffold to trigger more long-term results. We offer these dermal fillers:

  • Juvederm® family
  • Restylane® family
  • STYLAGE® family
  • Bellafill®

All of these except Bellafill® contain different formulations of hyaluronic acid. Because this molecule already occurs in the body, reactions to hyaluronic acid fillers are extremely unlikely. Some formulas address lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Others restore lost volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face. Some formulas plump and enhance the lips. 

Bellafill® contains microspheres of polymethylmethacrylate. When injected, this triggers collagen development and forms a new collagen framework that adds fullness and firmness. This filler also treats nasolabial folds and can improve the appearance of acne scars.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?

The cost of dermal fillers varies widely based on the formula chosen, how much will be needed, and other factors. Prices per syringe can range between $400 and $1500. A consultation is the best way to find out which filler will work best for you and how much your treatment will cost. 

What Results Will I See With Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid fillers usually show visible results almost immediately, while polymethylmethacrylate fillers can take several weeks to start seeing results. However, the body will eventually clear away hyaluronic acid fillers, with most lasting about twelve to eighteen months. Fillers that initiate and promote collagen production will take longer to show results, but these results can last indefinitely. 

Is There Any Downtime With Dermal Fillers?

There is no downtime with dermal fillers, and you can resume all your usual activities. You may see some redness or bruising at the injection site for a short time. The lack of any downtime makes dermal fillers a quick and easy way to enhance your features. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Almost anyone can have dermal fillers. The professionals at Skinatomy Laser Clinic will choose the right dermal filler for your needs. Candidates should have reasonable expectations about what dermal fillers can accomplish.
