Over time, skin loses its elasticity and hydration. This is inevitable; we all face the consequences of skin aging. What if there were a way to smooth, hydrate, and youthfully plump your aging skin? At Tondue Medical Spa, we have just the solution — cosmetic fillers. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular injectables today. If you’re located near or in Bay City, MI, visit us for your injectable fillers.
So what are dermal fillers? How long do dermal fillers last? There are many different types of dermal fillers, and our goal is to educate you on the best options for your skin’s needs. Here’s what you need to know about cosmetic fillers and what they can do for your skin.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Your skin naturally produces a substance called hyaluronic acid. Each hyaluronic acid molecule can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid is also responsible for collagen production.
Unfortunately, as you age, your body produces less and less hyaluronic acid as each year passes. This decline results in fewer collagen and elastin fibers to keep your skin tight and youthful. It can also cause your skin to dry out and become vulnerable to wrinkles.
Dermal fillers have changed the game when it comes to anti-aging skin treatments. Injectable fillers are minimally invasive and supply your skin with a much-needed repertoire of hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in dermal filler formulas stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, resulting in younger-looking skin. Furthermore, the injectable formula itself usually has a gel-like consistency, which physically smooths and decreases wrinkles.
Facial fillers restore a youthful glow to your skin by boosting hydration, collagen production, and youthful plumping. What more could you ask for from an anti-aging skin injectable?
Your Options: Types of Dermal Fillers
There is no one-size-fits-all dermal filler treatment plan. Every patient has different anti-aging goals and skin needs. That’s why we offer different types of dermal fillers — so you can match your desired aesthetic with your facial appearance.
We use the Juvéderm family of fillers to help you achieve your best look. Juvéderm is a hyaluronic-acid-based filler brand. The amazing results of these injectables have been popular for decades now.
Dermal Fillers Under Eyes: Get Rid of Hollow-Looking Eyes
Many people get dermal fillers under the eyes to supplement the volume loss that has occurred with natural aging. Your undereye area is already soft and vulnerable to wrinkling, damage, and collagen loss. Anyone can end up with premature undereye aging, and that’s where facial fillers come in.
Dermal fillers add just the right amount of volume under your eyes to get rid of hollow-looking, sunken-in eyes. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with natural aging, but if you’d rather look bright and awake at all times, this treatment could be perfect for you.
Dermal Fillers: Lip Injections for Plumping and Smoothing
You don’t have to struggle with wrinkles and collagen loss to get dermal fillers. Lips can also fall flat, just like skin, especially if you weren’t born with a naturally plush pair. Lip fillers add smooth, hydrating volume to your lips to give you a more kissable pout. These injections can also even lips that are different sizes or shapes.
Cosmetic Fillers for the Mid-Face and Mouth Areas
Some of the Juvéderm fillers we carry are designed to enhance your mid-face or the skin around your mouth. Depending on where you experience wrinkling and volume loss, you may need one or more types of dermal fillers during your appointment.
Facial volume loss can make your cheeks and mouth look hollow, sunken-in, or otherwise older than they really are. With cosmetic fillers, we can smooth and volumize these areas in ways that make you look like your best youthful self.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Depending on the type of fillers you get, your results can last anywhere from six to 18 months after your injections. There are several factors that impact your dermal filler results.
Physically active patients may metabolize the filler formula more quickly, resulting in less time between maintenance appointments. Genetics also play a role in filler metabolization, as everyone’s body is different.
We highly recommend taking good care of your skin in between appointments. Dermal fillers work from the inside out to replenish your skin’s volume and hydration. However, your external skincare routine is just as important. To extend your gorgeous anti-aging results, make sure you maintain a consistent skincare routine and use the right products for your complexion.
