Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections containing a thick substance to give your face volume and structure. Facial Art Institute offers a menu of several popular brands of dermal fillers with varying ingredients and specialties:

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm’s line of products all contain hyaluronic acid to help your skin retain structure and moisture for a year or longer.

Restylane®

Restylane offers a line of products that use hyaluronic acid from bacteria rather than animals for low chances of allergic reactions. It lasts for about six months in most patients.

Belotero®

Belotero is a brand of hyaluronic acid filler that specializes in wrinkles, bumps, and creases. It can last anywhere from six months to a year and a half depending on the type you get.

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a type of dermal filler containing calcium hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring substance in your bones that helps start your body’s own collagen production. The results last for a year or more.

Revanesse® Versa™ 

Revanesse Versa is a hyaluronic acid filler for wrinkles and folds with uniquely uniform sized and shaped particles for few side effects. Its results last for up to a year.

How do dermal fillers alter my appearance?

Dermal fillers offer many possibilities for appearance enhancements and are becoming increasingly competitive with cosmetic surgery. Though the changes aren’t permanent with a one-time injection, you can make these and other changes with dermal fillers alone:

  • Soften creases around your nose and mouth
  • Make your cheeks more voluminous and less sunken
  • Make your lips plump and luscious
  • Remove under eye shadows and bags
  • Make your face more symmetrical
  • Smooth your chin’s crease or dimples

Treatments using dermal fillers are highly customizable and personal. Your provider forms a treatment strategy to target all of your concerns, and you can keep enjoying any satisfactory results with maintenance injections down the road.

Are dermal fillers safe for anyone?

In offering several dermal filler varieties, Facial Art Institute allows men and women to choose one that works for them. If you aren’t able to get one dermal filler because of its ingredients, another may be a possibility for you. 

In general, you’re a candidate for dermal filler injections if you:

  • Are decently healthy
  • Don’t have an active skin flare-up or condition
  • Aren’t allergic to the ingredients
  • Aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are in your 20s or older

Your provider helps you choose the safest and most effective filler for you after evaluating your health and goals.
