Are you tired of looking in the mirror every day and seeing sagging skin, wrinkles, and those crease marks that have somehow become permanent? Do you wish you could achieve that soft yet firm look that you had when you were younger? Have you thought about a facelift before, but were hesitant to go under the knife? If this sounds like you, then you may be the perfect candidate for an injectable dermal filler.

What are dermal fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore volume, smooth lines and soften wrinkles, or enhance facial contours. The popularity of dermal fillers has grown rapidly in recent years because they produce dramatic, rejuvenative aesthetic improvements that were previously only achievable with surgery. Plus, dermal fillers are less costly than surgery and have limited-to-no recovery time. There are many different types of dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular type.

Who is an ideal candidate for dermal fillers?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, ideal candidates for dermal fillers should have the following:

  • Good physical health
  • Non-smoker
  • A positive outlook and realistic goals for the improvement of their appearance
  • A commitment to maintaining good skin health

While dermal fillers are often referred to as a Liquid Facelift, it’s important to keep in mind that they can only help to improve your appearance temporarily. Although results from dermal fillers are not permanent, the newest fillers on the market have been formulated to last as long as 2 years. Some candidates use dermal fillers to delay the time when a surgical facelift is more appropriate. It’s an excellent way to see some impressive changes and improvements in your appearance until you’re ready for a permanent surgical option.
