Dermal Fillers Q & A

Ageless Anatomy

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable compounds that help diminish facial lines and restore your face’s volume and fullness to create a refreshed, more youthful look. As the years pass, you lose subcutaneous fat just under your skin, making folds and wrinkles more evident, and causing irregular, sunken contours.

What aesthetic issues can dermal fillers address?

Dermal fillers can address a variety of aesthetic concerns in a noninvasive way. These include:

  • Shallow, hollowed cheeks
  • Thin lips
  • Facial lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead
  • Recessed scars
  • Shadows under the eyes

Dermal fillers can temporarily address these signs of aging that are sometimes accelerated by sun damage and lifestyle habits. Dermal fillers won’t give you the same dramatic effect as a facelift, but can still give you excellent results -- and without surgery.

What are the ingredients in dermal fillers?

One of the primary ingredients in popular dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® and Restylane®, is hyaluronic acid. Your body produces hyaluronic acid naturally to add softness, hydration, and heft to your skin. Production diminishes as you get older, so dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid replace what you once had.

Other dermal fillers contain a variety of other ingredients, including:

  • Calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural mineral-like compound that reduces wrinkles and enhances facial fullness
  • Polyalkylimide, which is a semi-permanent dermal filler that plumps thin lips and treats deep wrinkles; it can be easily removed if necessary
  • Polylactic acid, a synthetic filler that prompts your body to produce collagen to strengthen and boost the appearance of your skin
  • Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres, a semi-permanent filler used to fill scars and treat medium-to-deep wrinkles and folds

These ingredients are found in specific brand name products available at Ageless Anatomy.

Which dermal filler is right for me?

The team at Ageless Anatomy thoroughly reviews your areas of concern and your aesthetic goals when recommending a treatment plan. Application of dermal fillers is customized to you, and careful consideration is given so you end up with a natural look.

How long do the effects of dermal fillers last?

The length of time the effects of your dermal filler treatment lasts depends on what area you have treated, the issues addressed, the type used, and how your body reacts to the medication. Results last a few months to several years, depending on which filler is used.*

Talk to Ms. Bangart and Dr. Cain about what to expect from your specific treatment. Once the effects of fillers wear off, you can obtain additional treatments to maintain your look.
