Dermal fillers® are injectable implants that help to smooth skin and wrinkles. As the name implies, they are injected beneath your skin using a needle.
There are four categories of fillers. Each is named for the type of material they’re made with:
A substance naturally produced by your body and already found in your skin and cartilage. Generally, fillers made with hyaluronic acid last between 6-12 months. Hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient in skincare products. It helps the skin to retain moisture and makes your face look more plump and hydrated. It’s used in lotions as a moisturizer, but no cream can restore lost volume as only injectable hyaluronic acid can do that.
A mineral that is found in our bones. Fillers made with this material last up to 18 months.
A biodegradable synthetic material that’s also used to make medical products like dissolvable stitches. These fillers may last up to two years.
The only filler that can’t be absorbed by your body, meaning the results are permanent. They’re only used around the mouth.
