If you are considering injections to rejuvenate your appearance, here are nine things to know about dermal fillers.

1. Many Popular Dermal Fillers and Composed of Hyaluronic Acid

Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero are some of the most popular dermal fillers that are comprised of hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body and can hold up to a 1000 times its weight in water.

These characteristics making it an excellent plumping agent that can instantly volumize and hydrate skin.

2. Filler Results Can Often be Reversed

More often than not, patients are extremely pleased with their fillers results. However, in the event that outcomes are less than desirable or need to be modified, an injectable enzyme called hyaluronidase can partially or fully dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers.

3. Patients Can Enjoy Filler Benefits for Several Months to Years

Many women and men elect to undergo dermal fillers because they are safe, effective, nonsurgical, and require zero-downtime. What’s more, they can rejuvenate skin and achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance for 6-24 months.

4. Subtle Enhancement is the Goal

Gone are the days of overplumped lips and cheeks. Today’s filler treatments are aimed at subtly enhancing each individual’s facial features, combating signs of aging, and achieving natural-looking results. In fact, when done well, fillers should be undetectable.

5. Advanced Filler Techniques Mean More Natural-Looking Outcomes

Improved filler techniques are also responsible for more discrete outcomes. Injectors are now able to lift and revitalize one part of the face by strategically applying filler to another area.

6. Injector Skill Set, Qualifications, and Experience are Paramount

If you are considering dermal fillers, ensure that your injections are performed by a qualified and certified medical professional who has expertise in injeactables. Overlooking the importance of your injector commonly leads to undesirable outcomes and complications.

7. Bargain Filler Treatments Are a Bad Idea

Filler deals that seem too good to be true are usually just that. If you find an online deal that is priced significantly lower than other providers in your area, it should raise some red flags and call into question product authenticity and the provider qualifications.

8. Dermal Fillers Are Highly-Customizable

Filler ingredients, particle size, and formulation all play a key role in the type of concerns that each product can treat. That being said, different fillers are designed to treat specific concerns, allowing for a highly customizable treatment.

9. You’ll Need to Undergo Touch-Ups to Maintain Treatment Benefits

Although filler results can last several months to years, it is important to note that these benefits are temporary. If you would like to maintain filler effects, you will need to undergo routine touch-up treatments.
