Dermal Fillers 101: Everything You Want To Know
Over 1 million people get dermal fillers every year. In fact, they are so popular that they fall just below neurotoxin (Botox) injections as the second most performed non-surgical cosmetic treatment. The reason is simple: they are extremely effective at reducing the most common signs of aging. This quick in-office procedure can take years off your appearance and enhance your natural features.
Different Fillers For Different Applications
One common misconception about fillers is that they are all the same, or can be used anywhere. This is not the case. Dermal fillers are formulated for specific uses. Most of them consist of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body in the connective tissues. This soft, gel-like material keeps the skin plump and hydrated.
At Landy, we offer a range of filler options so we can choose the best filler for the application:
- Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus – an all-around great facial filler, it targets deep creases like nasolabial folds.
- Juvederm Voluma – gives great volume to the cheek area to help contour the face.
- Restylane Lyft – primarily used to add volume to the back of the hands, but it is also great for scars.
- Restylane Kysse – designed specifically for natural-looking lips, it preserves movement while adding volume and enhancing lip color.
Fast And Long Lasting Results
The most satisfying aspect of dermal fillers is how quickly you see results. They plump wrinkles, add volume to sagging skin, and generally restore a youthful appearance. Plus, you’ll enjoy those benefits for 6 months to a year – or longer. This quick in-office procedure is performed with a bit of local anesthetic, then you’re free to go about your usual activities.
