What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections administered by a trained medical professional with the purpose of enhancing facial volume for an overall more youthful look. When injected into the skin, they help plump it up and can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.*

 

What Is The Difference Between Types Of Dermal Fillers?

Most of the differences between the types of dermal fillers come from the substance they are made from.  Many of the most popular dermal fillers today (such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero Balance) are composed of a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a natural substance that is found in our bodies, meaning that they are very safe with a low chance of causing an allergic reaction.*

Other dermal fillers, however, are composed of a wide range of different substances. Radiesse, for example, is made of tiny calcium-based spheres that are suspended in a gel-like substance. Still others are made from bovine collagen, lactic acid, and a wide variety of other substances.*

Because of these differences, these different types of dermal fillers provide different sorts of results.  Radiesse, for example, is better for deeper lines and wrinkles, while HA based fillers are better for filling in more superficial lines and wrinkles and adding volume to lips.*

These aren’t the only differences though. HA fillers are reversible with a single injection while other fillers (like Radiesse) are not and have to wear off naturally. However, non-HA fillers tend to last longer than HA fillers, with fewer touch ups needed.*Dermal Fillers El Monte | Huntington Park

Can Dermal Fillers Really Help You Look Refreshed?*

Yes! Dermal fillers can reduce wrinkles, plump lips and help combat volume loss with results lasting from four months to over one year. Generally, dermal fillers can temporarily reduce signs of aging and also give you a full look without looking over done.*

Do Dermal Filler Injectables Hurt?

At Plush Derma Laser Clinic & Skin Center, we use an ultra-fine medical grade needle to minimize discomfort. Many of our patience describe the feeling of an injectable as a pinch or prick, with minimized discomfort that does not last long. We also provide a numbing cream, should you be more sensitive to the procedure. Overall, our patients agree that the tiny pinch is work the great results.*

What Are The Risks Of Getting Dermal Filler Injections?

Although side effects are rare from dermal fillers, they can occasionally occur. The risks involved with getting a dermal filler depend on the type of dermal filler. Because HA fillers are made of a substance that occurs naturally in your body, the risk of allergic reactions is very low, while your doctor will generally give you an allergy test before using non-HA fillers on you.*

Some common side effects include temporary redness, bruising, swelling, itching and tenderness. These generally are very mild and should go away on their own within a few hours or days. We will discuss some ways you can help prevent side effects prior to your treatment.*
