Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that improve the contouring of your facial features. They most often work to replace lost facial volume but can also be used to augment volume in certain areas.

Most dermal fillers are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. There are several types of dermal fillers, each designed for placement in specific areas of your face. Fillers have a gel-like consistency to provide soft and natural-looking enhancement. 

What areas can dermal fillers improve?

Dermal fillers can be used in numerous areas of your face. A highly skilled medical professional like the practitioners at Fry Eye Associates can evaluate your facial contouring and guide you toward the options best suited for your needs. 

Some of the areas where dermal fillers can improve facial contouring include:

  • Midface or cheeks
  • Beneath the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines — the folds running from the sides of your mouth to your chin
  • Lips
  • Vertical lip lines

Fillers can also improve the appearance of recessed scars by plumping and smoothing the tissue beneath the scarring. 

How long do dermal fillers last?

There are many different types and formulations of dermal fillers. Some products create results that last around six months, while others last a year or longer. Thicker dermal fillers are used to add significant volume, while thinner dermal fillers are great for altering contouring in smaller areas. 

During your consultation, your practitioner discusses which fillers can offer the best results depending on the shape of your face and your treatment goals. You’ll explore the pros and cons of various options and receive all the details needed to make an informed decision about your care. 

One of the reasons dermal fillers are so popular is because they allow you to evaluate your initial results to determine if you’d like more or less volume in subsequent treatments. You can always begin with less and work your way up to more when you return for your next treatment.
