Do you already know about dermal fillers? We tell you what it is about

Dr. Luis Carlos Posada

Dermal fillers are a hugely popular cosmetic treatment used to improve the appearance of skin.

These fillers are made up of either natural or synthetic substances that are injected into the skin to add volume, smooth out wrinkles and manage fine lines, making them an integral part of modern and safe anti-aging procedures. The three most common dermal fillers, which are FDA-approved for use in cosmetic medicine, are:

  • Hyaluronic Acid: A natural substance found in the human body, used to add volume to areas of the face such as lips, nose, and facial contours. Popular brands include Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite: A mineral compound naturally found in bones, used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. Radiesse is one of the FDA-approved dermal fillers with calcium hydroxylapatite.
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid: A synthetic substance used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. Sculptra is one of the FDA-approved dermal fillers with poly-L-lactic acid.

Here are 12 reasons why dermal fillers are the ideal choice:

  1. They allow you to add volume to specific areas of the face and fill in fine lines and wrinkles, such as those on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
  2. They can improve facial symmetry by increasing volume in one cheek or filling in a wrinkle on one side of the face.
  3. They can enhance the appearance of lips by increasing their size or improving their contour.
  4. They can rejuvenate the face by restoring lost volume due to aging.
  5. They are a quick and simple treatment that can be performed in a single session.
  6. They are a non-surgical option for improving the appearance of the skin.
  7. There is little to no downtime required after treatment, so you can return to your normal activities almost immediately.
  8. They provide natural-looking results when applied by a professional who understands facial anatomy.
  9. They are safe, biocompatible, and have undergone rigorous health protocols.
  10. They provide long-lasting but not permanent results, so they can be repeated as needed.
  11. They can be personalized to meet the individual needs of each patient.
  12. They can improve self-esteem by enhancing one's appearance.

It is important to note that these dermal fillers are approved for use in cosmetic medicine, but it is not recommended to self-medicate. It is important to consult with an experienced medical professional for the best results and to avoid complications.
