Dermal Fillers Explained

Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers, are FDA-approved medical products used to create a smoother and fuller appearance to the skin and structures of the face. As we age, it is natural for our skin to start showing some changes as we lose some of the subcutaneous fat that supports our skin. Our skin also starts losing elasticity, both of which allow wrinkles to show on our faces. Injecting these fillers under the skin allows the lines and wrinkles to smooth out, while others can create structure on cheeks and chins. The most popular face areas to have dermal fillers are the nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, and lips. Fillers have also been FDA-approved for other body areas, including the tops of the hands and recessed scars.

The FDA has approved four types of fillers; three are considered temporary fillers because they are made with materials that the body breaks down and absorbs over time. Since these materials are eventually absorbed into the body, the results of the fillers are temporary and can last from six months to a couple of years. These materials are:

  1. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar naturally found in the body. Examples of fillers of this kind include JUVÉDERM, Belotero®, Restylane®, and Revanesse®. These help improve fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to cheeks, sunken eyes, and lips. These particular fillers can last up to 12 months or more, depending on the patient, the product, and the area being treated. The main advantage of HA fillers is that because they are a natural substance in your body, they lower the risk of side effects.  Also, if you are not satisfied with the results, your Dermatology Provider can use an enzyme called hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler.
  2. Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) is a mineral and a component of bone in your body. This volumizing filler restores a natural, youthful look and lasts longer than many other fillers. It does this by stimulating collagen in your body, resulting in improved results over time. The most well-known brand of CaHa fillers is Radiesse®, which is used frequently to add volume to your cheeks to restore volume loss that happens mid-face.
  3. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a synthetic, biodegradable product that immediately provides volume to the area and gradually helps to replace lost collagen. Sculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved filler used on smile lines, marionette lines, chin wrinkles, and nasolabial folds (between the nose and mouth). Results have been known to last up to two years.

Within each of these filler families, there are several subtypes that allow our Dermatology Providers to customize treatments.

Product Special: 15% OFF ALL Sunscreens

Remember to stock up on sunscreen. Although you should use sunscreen every day, regardless of the time of year, it is especially crucial during the summertime when we spend more time outdoors. Also, during the summer months, the sun’s angle varies, causing the intensity of UVB rays to be highest. This can lead to an increased risk of sunburn. We recommend you use a sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays, with an SPF of 30 or higher for the best protection.

Tips for Effective Sunscreen Application:

  1. Apply Adequately: Use about one ounce for your whole body and a nickel-sized amount for the face.
  2. Apply Early: Put on sunscreen at least 15-30 minutes before sun exposure.
  3. Reapply Regularly: Reapply every two hours or after sweating, swimming, or towel-drying.
  4. Cover All Exposed Areas: Don’t forget your ears, neck, feet, and scalp.
  5. Daily Use: Apply sunscreen daily to combat UV damage effectively, even on cloudy days.

Incorporating these products and practices into your skin care routine can effectively shield your skin from sun damage and maintain its health and radiance.
