At Iconic Skin Clinic, dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, lip, and facial fillers, or wrinkle fillers, are FDA-approved medical device implants used to help create a smoother and fuller appearance in the face, including the nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands.
Once injected with a thin needle into the skin, the filler immediately adds the needed volume or fills in lines and wrinkles. Results can last anywhere from six months to more than two years, depending on the product used. Fillers can treat numerous body areas, including the lips, cheeks, temples, creases around the mouth, lines on the chin, and more. With so many options and different benefits and results, it can be challenging to determine which is right for you.
Dermal fillers performed by your cosmetic dentist can improve the appearance of recessed, hollowed areas along the gum line and in the cheeks. They can also be used to plump up thin lips and improve the contours of the lips for a more youthful appearance. Additionally, they can be used to smooth out deep lines and wrinkles around your mouth.
With injectable fillers, the results are immediate. Your dentist will use a fine needle to inject the filler into the targeted area of your face. The feeling is like a pinch or a mosquito bite. Dermal fillers are temporary because the body eventually absorbs the injected material. However, results can last several months and, in some cases, up to one year.
One of the main reasons that people choose to get dermal fillers is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers help to give the skin a more youthful appearance by smoothing out those lines, wrinkles, and creases that naturally occur due to aging. Another reason many people choose to have dermal fillers is to add volume to parts of the face that have become hollow or sunken due to aging. The cheeks can lose volume over time, which causes the skin to sag in that area. Dermal fillers can help plump up the cheek area so that a person looks younger and more refreshed. Lastly, dermal fillers can also help with lip augmentation, as they are one of the most popular ways to achieve fuller lips without surgery.
Suppose you have mild to moderate smile lines, acne scars, or natural volume loss and want to achieve a youthful appearance without surgery. In that case, you may be a suitable candidate for dermal filler treatment.
