What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are non-surgical, minimally invasive injectables that reduce the signs of aging. These cosmetic fillers can eliminate wrinkles, tighten skin, and restore volume to areas that have become hollow due to age.
Dermal fillers are made of a gel-like substance that is injected under your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The consistency of the gel can also restore volume to your face for a more youthful appearance. There are various types of dermal fillers, and they all have varying gel-like consistencies to treat different areas of your face.
Dermal fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical that aids your skin. As you get older, your body cannot produce enough hyaluronic acid to maintain your youthful skin. Dermal fillers also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to tighten your skin. Instead of targeting the signs of aging at the surface, dermal fillers work at a deeper level to target your skin concerns at the source.
The Benefits of Wichita Dermal Fillers
Of course, you want natural-looking, youthful skin. Thankfully, dermal fillers work to increase the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins found in your body, to provide natural results. Additionally, the results appear over time for a discreet transformation.
Dermal filler treatments do not require incisions, anesthesia, or stitches. There is no downtime or complicated recovery instructions. You can be in and out of your treatment session during a lunch break and return to your daily activities.
Since most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is found in your body, there is a low risk of developing an allergic reaction. Dermal fillers are FDA-approved for various skin concerns.
Dermal Fillers Can Treat a Variety of Areas
Dermal fillers are not limited to one area on your face. They can be used to reduce the signs of aging in many different areas. We offer dermal fillers that can treat wrinkles and fine lines in the following areas:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette Lines
- Under-Eye Area
Types of Dermal Fillers
As mentioned, dermal fillers come in a variety of consistencies to treat different age-related skin concerns. You can also use dermal fillers for fuller lips. Dermal fillers are not only for age-related skin concerns; they can also reduce the appearance of acne scars. Here are some of the dermal fillers we offer:
Juvederm Ultra XC
Juvederm® contains a range of dermal fillers for various purposes. Juvederm Ultra XC is particularly designed for lip augmentation for adults over the age of 21. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around your mouth.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is specially designed for moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is slightly thicker than other dermal fillers to target these deep facial folds.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC is especially effective at restoring volume to sunken areas under your cheeks. This added volume will give your face a more youthful shape.
Juvederm Volbella XC
Juvederm Volbella XC has a thinner consistency than most other Juvederm products. Most patients use this dermal filler for lip augmentations. It can restore balance to your face by defining your lips.
Belotero Balance is a dermal filler that has been approved for moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds that run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
Versa + offers immediate results. It can effectively reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial folds.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
While dermal fillers are temporary cosmetic treatments, their results are long-lasting compared to other non-surgical treatments. Dermal filler results can last from six months to two years. This depends on the type of dermal filler you use. It also depends on your metabolism.
Over time, your body removes the dermal filler molecules, reducing the effects. Once the results wear off, you can visit us for another quick treatment session. In this way, you can maintain your soft, youthful skin.
