There are more dermal fillers on the market than ever before. Dermal fillers are made of different materials and each has its own benefits and downsides, so it’s important to know your skin type before you choose one. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, for example, it’s best not to use a hyaluronic acid filler because these fillers can cause breakouts in oily areas of your face. On the other hand, if you have dry skin then consider using a hyaluronic acid filler because these provide hydration without being too heavy or greasy.

Dermal fillers can smooth wrinkles and boost volume in areas that have lost their youthful contours.

You may be interested in dermal fillers if you would like to:

  • Fill in wrinkles
  • Add volume to areas of your face that have lost their youthful contours, such as the cheeks, jaw line and temples.

If you are not sure whether dermal fillers could help you, talk to your doctor about whether this treatment is right for you.

The effect of dermal filler isn’t permanent. They generally last between 6 & 24 months.

Fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of tear troughs by lifting the skin and restoring volume around the eye area.

Tear troughs are often treated using dermal fillers to restore volume back into this area under the eyes. When choosing between these two options, it’s important to consider what you’re looking for from your treatment: would you like something temporary? Or do you want results that last longer? Most people find that dermal fillers are more effective at filling out their tear troughs—upwards of six months!

A better understanding of your skin concerns and treatment goals is important to decide which dermal filler is right for you.

A better understanding of your skin concerns and treatment goals is important to decide which dermal filler is right for you.

  • Skin Type: The first step in choosing the right dermal filler is knowing your skin type. Your doctor can help you identify what type of skin you have (i.e., oily, dry, combination) and recommend products that will help maintain its health and appearance.
  • Treatment Goals: The second step in choosing the right dermal filler is understanding your treatment goals. Are you looking to erase wrinkles or restore volume? Get rid of acne scars or diminish pore size? Be sure to discuss these with your doctor so they know exactly what result(s) are most important for them to achieve with their treatments on your face.
  • Concerns: The third step in choosing the right dermal filler is identifying your main concerns about aging skin—for example:
  • Lines around eyes/mouth area
  • Crepey neck area
  • Coloration changes from sun exposure

Different dermal fillers work on different skin layers.

The dermis is the middle layer of skin, and it’s what you see when you pinch your arm. It contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles and sweat glands.

The top layer of skin – the epidermis – is made up of dead cells; the bottom layer – the hypodermis – is made up mostly of fat and connective tissue.

Areas where Filler can be used to rejuvenate or alter appearance.

  • Lips 
  • Cheek Augmentation 
  • Jawline Sculpting & Contouring
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Rhinoplasty ( Non-Surgical Nose Job)
  • Tear Troughs
  • Temporal Hollows 
  • Chin Augmentation 
  • Marionette Lines

Not every dermal filler is appropriate for every area.

  • Not every dermal filler is appropriate for every area. For example, you can use dermal fillers to improve the volume or smooth out wrinkles in your cheeks, but if you have a defect such as a large scar on one of those cheeks then it’s not appropriate to use a dermal filler there.
  • Choose a filler that matches your skin type and your desired results. For example, if you want to reduce fine lines around the lips then choose an injectable that contains hyaluronic acid; this will give you longer lasting results than other types of injectables like poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) because it’s more flexible and has some natural lubrication qualities

Some types of hyaluronic acid (HA) bind water more than others, giving them their own individual feel, function and duration.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in skin, joints and other connective tissues. It’s also used as a dermal filler.

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections to plump up the face by creating volume. In addition to HA, some fillers contain collagen or other fillers like calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) or polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), which help with tissue regeneration. But all dermal fillers contain at least some hyaluronic acid (HA).

The size of HA molecules makes them ideal for filling wrinkles because they’re larger than collagen molecules but smaller than the dermal filler molecules themselves—so they can be seen under your skin after injection into your facial tissue layers!

It’s important to know more about dermal fillers before you choose one.

Before you choose a dermal filler, it’s important to know what you’re getting. It’s helpful to research the pros and cons of each type of dermal filler. Each product has its own unique properties, so it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking for before making a decision. For instance, if you want something that lasts longer than normal tissue filler but doesn’t give as dramatic of results as fat transfer or injectables, then hyaluronic acid is probably your best bet. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something that will last about 8-10 months per session and provides fuller lips without being too obvious under the skin (e.g., if people can see that there are lips with nothing in between them), hyaluronic acid or collagen might be better options since they will require multiple sessions before they reach maximum fullness

The best way to get a handle on which dermal filler is right for you is to consult with an experienced aesthetic medicine doctor who can help assess your skin concerns and treatment goals. They’ll also be able to advise you on the best way to use dermal fillers—whether it’s in combination with other treatments or as a standalone product.
