What Are Dermal Fillers Really? Are They Safe?

Dermal fillers are widely used by celebrities and average adults alike as the ultimate age and wrinkle busters. Whether you need to plump your lips or erase unsightly wrinkles, there’s a dermal filler specifically formulated to meet your needs. 

But what exactly are dermal fillers, and how do they work to safely erase years from your appearance? Here’s everything you need to know about this simple and effective way to restore your youthful confidence. 

Dermal Fillers Are Designed To Counteract the Biology of Aging.

The makers of dermal fillers like Juvederm and Radiesse understand the intricacies of aging. As you age, your skin’s collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid levels diminish, and their production slows down. This causes your skin to become saggy, drawn, wrinkled, and even gaunt as natural healing processes slow to a grinding halt. 

Dermal fillers counteract this biology in two ways. First, many of them actually stimulate accelerated collagen production in the skin. This helps the skin become healthier on its own long after the dermal filler has disappeared. 

Second, dermal fillers are formulated to restore all of the volume depleted by age. This might be volume within a wrinkle that raises it to the surface of the skin, volume around the cheekbones, or even volume in the lips and hands. 

The Results Are Often Instant and Long-Lasting.

If you have a date tomorrow or a last-minute party to attend, you will love dermal fillers for their ability to start working immediately. That’s thanks to the hyaluronic acid in most fillers, which creates volume instantly. The best fillers can last up to two years or even longer with strategic care. 

You Can Choose Your Target Zone.

The other wonderful thing about dermal fillers is their versatility. Different types and variations of fillers are meant to be used on specific parts of the face and body. Some with thicker formulas work best for major volume restoration in the cheeks, while others with thin formulas can tackle delicate wrinkles around the eyes and lips. Whatever you need, there’s a dermal filler to make it happen.
