Dermal Fillers & Juvederm
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Injectable Dermal Fillers Work?
The skin is made of two layers, an outer layer called the epidermis and an inner layer called the dermis. The area between these two layers contains a jelly-like substance called hyaluronic acid. When we are young, our skin contains plenty of hyaluronic acid. However, when we age the hyaluronic acid between the layers of our skin diminishes. This decrease in hyaluronic acid causes the skin to lose its natural volume and fullness and creates wrinkles or folds. Dermal fillers replace the natural hyaluronic acid and add volume and firmness to the skin.
How Quickly Do You See Results After The Injectable Dermal Filler Procedure?
The results of a dermal filler procedure can be seen right away. The results do tend to improve for a few hours after treatment.
How Long Do Injectable Dermal Filler Treatments Last?
The Results obtained with dermal fillers typically last 6 to 9 months. The results may last up to a year in some people. How long results last varies from person to person. Dermal fillers are gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without follow up treatments.
USUALLY A FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT IS RECOMMENDED 2 WEEKS AFTER THE ORIGINAL PROCEDURE IN THE EVENT A TOUCH-UP IS REQUIRED. FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS SHOULD ALSO BE SCHEDULED FOR 4 TO 6 MONTHS AFTER THE PROCEDURE.
What Problems Can Be Treated With Injectable Dermal Fillers?
Fillers can be used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles, lip enhancements and shaping facial contours. Commonly treated areas are the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth), the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the droopy mouth corners, and thinning lips, contour cheekbone although other sites can also be treated.
