Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers provide youthful beauty from the inside out. These injectable fillers reduce the appearance of age lines and facial folds by restoring lost tissue volume beneath the skin’s surface.

Over the years, the matrix of collagen and elastin that provides structure to your skin begins to break down. This gives your skin a droopy appearance and may cause deep lines and wrinkles to form around your nose, mouth, and lips.

Dermal fillers use natural or synthetic substances, like hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite to add volume and lift to your facial contour. The result is smoother, younger looking skin.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

Due to the popularity of dermal fillers, there’s a wide variety of options available. The team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics offers a variety of dermal fillers, including:

  • Juvederm®
  • Juvederm Ultra®
  • Juvederm Voluma®
  • Restylane®
  • Restylane® Refyne™
  • Restylane® Defyne™
  • Restylane® Silk
  • Restylane® Lyft™
  • Radiesse®
  • BELOTERO BALANCE®
  • Sculptra®

This broad selection of fillers may appear overwhelming, but each excels in a specific area. The expert team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics spends time discussing your unique beauty goals during a consultation. Then, they explain the benefits and disadvantages of different fillers so you can make an informed decision.

Depending on the type of filler you get, results may be immediate or appear gradually over several weeks and last from six months to two years. After that, your body naturally breaks down the filler material and flushes it out.

What areas do dermal fillers treat?

With an extensive collection of dermal fillers, the team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics can treat many areas of concern. Different dermal fillers reduce wrinkles and enhance volume in several areas, including:

  • Sunken or droopy cheeks
  • Thin lips and vertical lip lines
  • Parentheses lines around the mouth
  • Nasolabial folds or smile lines

They also treat various other wrinkles on the face and chin. Dermal fillers aren’t appropriate for frown lines or crow’s feet. If you want to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles, you may want to consider a different injectable treatment, such as Botox®, XEOMIN®, or Dysport®.
