Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles of the face. The dermis is the layer of tissue that lies underneath the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and provides support, so dermal fillers basically help to fill in the grooves and gaps that appear in this tissue overtime. Injectable facial fillers applied by Dr. Parbhu include the Juvederm and Restylane family of fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are largely composed of hyaluronic acid. This substance is normally found in the human body. The hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers may be derived from animals or may be created in a laboratory. The hyaluronic acid used in Juvederm, Voluma, and Restylane are non-animal derived.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

As we age, the tissue of the face that holds the skin in place so that it appears youthful and firm begins to break down. Over time, lines, wrinkles, and folds will begin to appear in the skin as a result of this supportive tissue and subcutaneous fat breaking down. The hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers helps to replace the hyaluronic acid that has depleted from the facial tissue, restoring volume to the tissue of the dermis.

Common Cosmetic Uses for Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are commonly used to reduce the appearance of the following:

  • Plump thin lips or even asymmetric lips

  • Fill in shallow contours and hollowness

  • Reduce facial creases and wrinkles

  • Soften nasolabial folds, or “smile lines”

  • Soften marionette lines

  • Reduce the appearance of tear troughs which result in the appearance of dark under eye circles

  • Improve the appearance of scars that are recessed or due to acne

  • Rebuild cheek bone areas that have fallen or decreased

  • Define the jawline

  • It can also be used in other areas such as the hands and décolletage areas where volume loss is evident.

How Are Dermal Fillers Administered?

Dermal filler injection procedures may last between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment. Before dermal fillers are injected, the face is cleansed with an alcohol based cleaner. A local or topical anesthetic may be used to numb the area during the procedure, if desired.

Dermal fillers are injected into the dermis in several places using an ultra-fine needle. After administering several injections in the same general area, the physician will massage the area before continuing with injections. This helps to achieve the best results.

How Long Do Dermal Filler Effects Last?

Over time, the body will begin to absorb the injected hyaluronic acid, causing lines, folds, and wrinkles to reappear. The time that it takes the body to begin this reabsorption process may vary from patient to patient, but is usually between 6 and 12 months. In some patients, dermal filler results may last as long as 18 months.
