Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable compounds that help refresh the look of an aging face. You experience increased volume and a reduction in facial lines as a result of treatment.

What can dermal fillers be used for?

You may select dermal fillers to plump sunken parts of your face or eliminate the appearance of aging skin. Specific uses of dermal fillers include:

  • Plumping thin lips and hollow cheeks
  • Softening creases and wrinkles
  • Removing marionette and smile lines
  • Enhancing shallow contours

While dermal fillers are quite effective, they will not have the same effect as surgical facelifts.

What types of dermal fillers are available?

At Izar Wellness Institute, Dr. Rafael Nieto expertly applies the right type of facial filler in just the right locations to give you a brighter, younger look. He takes care that you continue to look natural – and unlike any work has been done.

The types of dermal fillers available at Izar Wellness Institute include:

  • Restylane®
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic

Each of these families of fillers is effective in specific areas of your face. Their use can be combined to give you the optimal results.

How do dermal fillers work?

Juvederm and Restalyne contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your body that enhances your skin’s firmness and volume. As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid diminishes. Dermal fillers restore it to help with:

  • Acne scars
  • Depressed cheeks
  • Frown lines, crow’s feet, and deep smile lines
  • Smoker’s and marionette lines

Sculptra contains a synthetic filler called polylactic acid. Injection of the compound stimulates your body’s production of collagen, a natural compound that enhances your skin’s appearance. Sculptra is particularly effective in:

  • Filling in laugh lines
  • Plumping thin lips
  • Treating deep nasolabial folds

Dr. Nieto can help you decide which fillers are best for your aesthetic goals.

How long do the effects of dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers are a temporary fix for the signs of aging. The results can last from six months to more than a year, depending on the type of filler used, the area treated, and the unique way in which your body responds. Dr. Nieto can put together a treatment schedule for you so that you get refreshers and maintain your look for the long term.
