Everything You Need To Know About Dermal Fillers

It's very reasonable to want to delay or reverse the effects of aging. As we age, we notice all the creases and wrinkles developing on our faces. It might be upsetting to use creams, oils, and other anti-aging remedies but still notice creases and wrinkles on your face. With dermal fillers, you can stop the hands of time if you want to see your youthful look in the mirror again.

Dermal fillers are among the less invasive procedures that are gaining popularity. Still, it may be challenging to understand how they precisely work, what the various products accomplish, and which choice is ideal for you. Here is all the information you need.

What are dermal fillers?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) makes dermal fillers, a gel-like material comparable to your body's naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid keeps the body and skin moisturized by drawing water molecules to themselves. 

When we are young, we make a lot of HA. Unfortunately, HA synthesis slows down with age, causing our skin's suppleness to decline. Since HA may moisturize and plump the skin, many younger women under thirty use fillers to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.

Dermal fillers add moisture, plumpness, and increased elasticity to the face, hands, and body, as well as "fill" creases, wrinkles, gaps, shallowness, and flaws. The face is the most typical place to receive fillers; we go over each below. Restylane and Juvéderm are the most often used fillers in cosmetic clinics. Each brand offers several fillers for use in various areas of the face.

What are the most typical areas to receive dermal fillers?

You have several options for dermal fillers if you've been considering decreasing the aging effects on your face. Hyaluronic acid fillers are frequently used in several places across the face. Here are some of the most popular ones:


Lip augmentation is one of the most often used non-surgical face procedures nowadays. People of all ages and genders are getting their lips filled in because everyone wants to have pouty lips. Lip filler typically lasts between four and eight months before needing a "top-up" visit to the clinic.

You should contact a reputable facility like iConcierge Medspa if you want lip fillers since some fillers work better for the lips. If one region of the face were a botched operation, it would be devastating. Thankfully, it dissolves if you use too much of the proper filler. Keep in mind that less is more when it comes to the lips. We advise choosing a subtle course of treatment. If you need more, you can always get extra next time.

Under the eyes

Tear trough fillers are among the most popular cosmetic procedures. The region beneath your eyes, which may have dark circles, drunkenness, and a loss of suppleness, will be the focus of the dermal filler. A dermal filler will lift and fill in the region around your eyes to help with bags or dark circles beneath the eyes.

After numbing the region, we delicately inject the filler into the tear trough using a small injection needle. The filler is carefully rubbed into the tear trough and blended around the cheekbone to provide a solid foundation for your under-eye region.

Lines around the mouth

It's a positive sign if you see lines around your mouth. That proves you've spent much time grinning and laughing throughout your life! However, these lines get more apparent and deeper as we age, even when we aren't grinning. Or maybe you feel self-conscious because fine wrinkles are starting to appear on your upper lip. Dermal fillers can help in this situation. With smile line filler, we can stretch and soften the nasolabial folds around your mouth.


One of our most straightforward and fastest dermal filler procedures is cheek fillers. Like previous procedures, a tiny needle injects the filler and massages it into the appropriate location.

Which dermal fillers should you try?

The best course of treatment for you will be explained by a qualified specialist, but keep in mind that many filler types can be necessary for the results to seem as natural as possible. Within each category, several filler brands exist, and the products' concentration of the active ingredient and suggested uses (such as plumping the cheeks) vary.

Here are the different types of dermal fillers:

  • Hyaluronic Acids like Restylane, Juvederm, and others: The most popular wrinkle filler is this organic part of the skin's connective tissue. The effects usually last six to twelve months.
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite like Radiesse: This filler is used to repair deeper wrinkles and skin folds, contour the jawline, and add volume to the cheeks. When used for contouring, the effects last up to a year, and when used to fill wrinkles, they last up to three years.
  • Fat grafting: Liposuction removes fat from the lower abdomen or another location. Then it is injected into the face, temple, lips, or forehead via a tiny incision. The results can be long-lasting. However, because part of the fat is reabsorbed by the body, getting the desired effects requires more than one treatment in addition to overfilling the site.
  • Permanent soft tissue filler like Bellafill: Deep creases around the lips can be reduced with this filler. This filler doesn't need to be reinjected since the body cannot absorb it. Permanent soft tissue filler is often not advised for a first face filler procedure.
  • Poly-L-lactic acid like Sculptra: The face volume lost due to age or disease is restored with this product. Usually, two or three sessions are needed. The results might endure for two years.

Please be aware that the FDA has not authorized dermal fillers for body sculpting treatments. In other words, you shouldn't use them to enlarge your butt or breasts.

Is it safe to use dermal fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is considered safe because it is already found in the body and is FDA and EU-authorized for use in facial fillers. Each year, thousands of patients utilize our safe, effective medicines, all of which have received official approval.

It's important to note that, in contrast to Botox, fillers are reversible, giving you a choice if you don't like the results. If you choose to receive fillers, you have a safety net and additional peace of mind because HA-based fillers may be removed with hyaluronidase.

Within a year, the body naturally breaks away hyaluronic acid fillers. Because of this, there is no proof that using fillers over an extended period is harmful or fatal.

How long do dermal fillers last?

If you're considering having dermal fillers, it's helpful to know that, depending on factors like age, lifestyle, genetics, and the type of dermal filler used, they can last nine to twelve months or even up to two years for some people.

Although every patient's response to the procedure will be unique, most people only need to top off their fillers once a year. Following treatment, your wrinkles won't disappear immediately; instead, it might take up to two weeks to notice the full effects.
