Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that diminish facial lines and restore volume in hollow contours to create youthful fullness and smoothness to your face. As you get older, subcutaneous fat under your skin atrophies, which makes creases more evident and causes hollowed cheeks and thinning lips.

Dermal fillers are applied with a needle, so you feel some discomfort at treatment. But the sessions require no downtime afterward, and results are immediate.

What areas can dermal fillers be used to treat?

Dermal fillers address a number of aesthetic concerns associated with aging. These include:

  • Lines around the eyes, mouth, and forehead
  • Shadows under the eyes
  • Recessed scars
  • Thinning lips

Dermal fillers can also fill in some acne scars. The effects of dermal fillers are temporary but effective. They won’t give you the same effect as a face-lift, but they do give you excellent youth-enhancing results, without surgery.

What are the types of dermal fillers?

A primary ingredient in dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® and Voluma® offered at Seacoast Dermatology, PLLC, is hyaluronic acid. HA is a natural substance that your body produces to add softness, lift, and hydration to your skin. As you get older, your production decreases. Dermal fillers help restore what you once had.

Another dermal filler offered at the offices of Seacoast Dermatology, PLLC, is Sculptra®. It contains calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural mineral-like compound that reduces wrinkles and enhances facial fullness.

The doctors help determine which dermal fillers are right for you depending on your features and aesthetic goals. Application of dermal fillers is customized to you, and the intention is to provide you with a more youthful, but natural, look.

How long do the effects of dermal fillers last?

The effects of dermal fillers last anywhere from about six months to a few years. Your personal metabolism, area treated, and dermal filler used determines the exact results you can expect.

Talk to your dermatology provider at Seacoast Dermatology, PLLC, about what to expect from your specific treatment. Once the effects wear off, you can get retreated to maintain your look.
