Dermal Fillers

General 11 February 2019 |
Are you looking for plump, youthful and smoother skin? Dermal fillers are designed to help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue.
You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.

How Do Fillers Work?

Fillers have been used for years and basically restore lost volume to your face and plump areas, so that deep-set lines are smoothed.

As we get older, our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to the youthful look. At around age 25 your collagen and elastin levels begin to decline at a rate of about 2% per year and your body will have stopped producing them altogether by your late twenties.


Are There Different Types of Fillers?

The most common type of facial filler is hyaluronic acid – the natural substance found in many areas of the body including eyeballs, joints and skin, that can hold 1000x its weight in water.

There are different types of hyaluronic acid fillers varying in thickness and consistency. Our expert master injectors will customize the appropriate filler to your concerns.

CHEEKS: As we get older, loss of subcutaneous facial fat can result in a gaunt, aged appearance. The volume in your cheeks may diminish for you cheeks to “fall.” You will want a filler that provides a subtle lifting, firming, and plumping to restore a more youthful look.

NASAL FOLDS: Nasolabial folds, also known as “parentheses lines”, run from the bottom of the nostrils to just below the mouth and deepen with age. The best injectable options for filling these lines will be both soft and durable fillers.

CORNERS OF MOUTH: These creases can appear right at the corners of the mouth or even run down vertically to your chin (marionette lines). Because this part of your face moves a lot, a flexible but stable filler is your best bet for successful, long-lasting results.

LIPS: Voluminous, shapely lips are definitely on trend. Depending on the look you are going for, fillers can plump up the lips, subtly improve definition and shape, or gently correct age-related volume loss.

LIP LINES: Your mouth gets quite a workout every day—and the repetitive motions of smiling, eating, sipping on a straw, and even playing certain instruments can have a lasting impact. Small, vertical lines just above the upper lip can give you a constant puckered appearance, but the right filler can help smooth the area and restore your youthful smile.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

It depends how your body reacts and which hyaluronic acid is used, but most dermal fillers will last between six to 18 months.

What Can I Expect Immediately After the Treatment?

Temporary side effects that are completely normal after all facial injections can include swelling, redness, and tenderness. These reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after the injection.


Why Should I Get My Dermal Filler Injections at VitalLife?

The face has many underlying sensitive structures, such as nerves and blood vessels. If the person administering fillers is untrained and not careful, there is risk of damage, infection, and artery occlusion than can lead to tissue death and scarring.

This makes it so important to seek out master injectors who understand the anatomy of the face and know the areas to avoid.

So, if you are ready for an almost instant younger look.
