What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular way to sculpt and rejuvenate your features. They use FDA-approved, biologically safe materials that let them remain in the skin for months without a reaction. Dermal fillers have many uses, and each type of filler excels at treating a different area or concern to give you a smooth, rejuvenated look without surgery.

What are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

Dermal fillers use a range of different materials. Only a consultation can determine which will work best to achieve your desired results. 


The Juvederm® family of fillers uses hyaluronic acid to enhance facial volume. Hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar found naturally in your skin, attracts and holds moisture, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products. Different Juvederm® formulas have different properties. Hyaluronic acid formulas have the flexibility to treat fine lines around the mouth and plump the lips. 


Restylane® is another family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. It contains several types of fillers to address different areas, such as fine lines and wrinkles, facial volume loss, and deep creases. Hyaluronic acid can form complex cross-linked structures with different properties. This allows them to work in applications from cheek sculpting to fine lines and wrinkles. 


Sculptra® is a unique filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid. Instead of adding immediate volume, this material triggers collagen production. New collagen adds natural-looking enhancement in areas like the cheeks, temples, and creases around the nose and mouth. Fillers that trigger collagen development usually work best for volume enhancement rather than fine lines. 


Radiesse® uses calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral found in bones, suspended in a gel. It provides a scaffold for new collagen development, making it an excellent option for filling hollow areas or lifting deep lines and wrinkles. Collagen-stimulating dermal fillers provide longer-lasting results than hyaluronic acid fillers.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The lifespan of a dermal filler depends on the filler material and the treatment area. Hyaluronic acid fillers usually last six to eighteen months. Fillers used around the mouth and in the lips need a soft, flexible formula that tends to break down more quickly, while fillers for the cheeks and jawline have a more resilient formula that lasts longer. 

Dermal fillers that trigger collagen development may last two years or longer. While the filler material does not last that long, the new collagen does. How long these filler results last depends on your body’s natural collagen production. Sun protection can prevent UV rays from breaking down collagen faster than normal. 

Is There Any Downtime With Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler injections usually take about 15 minutes, and you can return to your usual activities immediately. While dermal fillers require no downtime, you may have minor swelling or bruising. These will resolve within a few days, and many people do not experience them.
