If you wish you could smooth away lines and wrinkles or give your cheeks their youthful volume, Faces Fort Worth can help. We offer a range of dermal fillers that can treat even your most challenging areas. Dermal fillers give providers a tool to fight signs of aging and volume loss.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a group of products injected into the skin to add volume and smooth away wrinkles. Dermal fillers come in several different materials that allow us to precisely target your needs and concerns. At Faces Fort Worth we offer three brands of fillers to make sure we have the perfect one available for almost any use.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Each dermal filler has a different lifespan. A filler’s ingredients, density, and area of use will affect how long it lasts.
Juvederm® and Restylane®
These dermal fillers use a molecule called hyaluronic acid. It occurs naturally in your skin, where it improves hydration. Hyaluronic acid fillers come in many different formulas for targeted treatment. They typically last six to nine months. The most durable fillers, which are used in the cheeks and similar areas, can last up to a year.
This filler uses calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral naturally found in bone. It comes suspended in a resilient gel that makes it ideal for many uses. It also triggers your skin cells to produce collagen. New collagen rejuvenates your skin, adding volume and firmness that outlasts the filler itself. Results can last one to two years.
Where Can Dermal Fillers Be Used?
Dermal fillers can improve volume and smoothness almost anywhere. Men and women of all ages choose dermal fillers for enhancement, sculpting, and anti-aging. Dermal fillers can treat:
- Volume loss in the cheeks
- Tear troughs under the eyes
- Lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Loss of facial definition
- Thin or poorly defined lips
- Fine lines around the lips
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
If you have concerns about lines such as the ones between your eyebrows, we may recommend Botox®. You can have Botox® and dermal fillers in one treatment session for comprehensive anti-aging results.
What Results Will I See With Dermal Fillers?
You may have some redness after your injections that can last a few hours. You can return to your usual activities immediately. With hyaluronic acid fillers, results become visible right away, but they can continue to improve for several days. With calcium hydroxylapatite, you can see immediate results, but you will also see enhanced collagen development lasting several months after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
You may be a good candidate if you want to enhance your features and smooth wrinkles. Dermal fillers use biologically safe materials that work for almost anyone. You may not be a good candidate if you have an infection or skin issue in the treatment area.
