Dermal fillers are a Nonsurgical enhancement. Dr. Peter Accetta, a Board-certified dermatologist in Orchard Park, NY, suggests dermal fillers as a minimally invasive, no-downtime alternative to cosmetic surgery.
Fillers are gel formulations injected into the skin. Their benefit is three-fold:
The product adds immediate volume.
Some fillers bind with water, for additional plumping after treatment.
Introducing filler into the skin stimulates your body’s production of collagen for healthier, firmer, skin with more internal hydration.
Face fillers generally have moderate to heavy viscosity. Thicker fillers are placed in deep skin layers, typically on the upper half of the face. They replace volume that is lost as we age, thus recontouring youthful facial features. Medium products are ideal for filling lines and wrinkles and softening deep folds.
Lip injections are administered with thinner, silky-smooth fillers. These products can be used to augment lips, define the shape of the mouth, and smooth fine perioral lines that radiate from lips.
Hyaluronic acid or HA fillers are very popular and it helps to lubricate joints and keep skin plump with hydration. The HA in these FDA-approved fillers is not animal sourced, so there is a low risk of reaction, and results last up to 24 months.
Another type of long-lasting filler contains tiny particles made of calcium hydroxyapatite. Volume is easily replaced with filler – and with zero downtime.
