Open Door Med Spa provides a number of different dermal filler options to help you achieve the results you want. We personally provide Botox, Juvederm, Kybella, Jeuveau (NewTox), and Revanesse Versa fillers. Each vary in their applications. As there are many types of dermal fillers used today, Open Door Med Spa will share more about dermal fillers and how they work.
How Does a Dermal Filler Work?
A dermal filler is an imitation of a natural substance in the human body. Our bodies use a sugar base molecule that primarily functions as a lubricant and or shock absorber throughout our body, including underneath the skin. A dermal filler is often used to add volume underneath the skin as soon as it is applied. Dermal fillers are mostly used to remove the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. A dermal filler helps to smooth out the skin while looking very natural. Surgical removal of the skin can make the face look off, where a dermal filler is a more natural way to smooth out the skin.
Benefits of Facial Dermal Fillers
When wanting immediate results, dermal filler is the way to go. Again, as soon as the dermal filler is applied the skin looks smooth and renewed instantly. Even though dermal isn’t permanent, you can enjoy smooth healthier looking skin for 6 months or longer. Dermal filler is a natural way to improve the skin and it doesn’t require any invasive surgeries.
Where Can Dermal Filler Be Used?
Dermal fillers are primarily used on the face. A dermal filler can be applied around the cheeks, mouth, eyes, or even inside the lips. A dermal filler helps to hydrate the skin and removes lines around the mouth and eyes. For those who want fuller lips, dermal filler can also be injected in the lips. Some dermal fillers are not only used to fill-in aging lines but also remove fat. Kybella dermal filler is also used to remove fat from underneath the chin without the need for surgery. Depending on your needs, there are different dermal fillers which can be applied in various places around the face.
How Long Does Dermal Filler Last in Cheeks, Lips, Nasolabial Folds & More?
As there are many types of dermal fillers used in med spa to help improve facial appearances, on average dermal fillers last between 6 to 12 months. Dermal fillers are naturally biodegradable, which means they will dissipate over time. How long a dermal filler will last will depend on the type of filler, brands, and the thickness of the applied filler. At some point. to maintain results you will need a follow up appointment to receive another injection.
Do Dermal Filler Injections Hurt
Not everyone will have the same pain tolerance levels. Most people will report feeling a slight pinch, or pressure. Others report feeling a stinging pain much like getting a shot. As dermal filler is an injection the face will be punctured with a needle. However, to make the experience is as pleasant as possible, a numbing agent is applied a few minutes ahead of time. Once the skin feels numb, the dermal filler is injected to the desired location.
