Dermal fillers are injections, that diminish facial lines, restore fullness and volume in the face and plump up wrinkles. Our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat with age; hence the facial muscles work close to the skin surface- as a result, crow’s feet and smile lines become more prominent. The facial skin also stretches, causing loss of skin volume. Besides age, other factors that affect facial skin include hereditary, sun exposure and general lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can help with the early signs of aging. It is a minimally invasive procedure, that can enhance shallow contour, plump thin lips, remove wrinkles, soften facial creases, and improve appearance of scars.

Types of Dermal Fillers
Following are the common types of Dermal Fillers:
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)– naturally occurring substance in the skin, that binds water and make the skin plump. When used a dermal filler, hyaluronic acid helps remove wrinkles and fine lines, while improving the overall quality of skin.
Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)– a mineral naturally found in bones. As a dermal filler, microscopic calcium particles are suspended in smooth gel and used to treat deeper wrinkles and lines. CaHA is thicker as compared to HA and lasts longer.
Poly-L-Lactic acid (PLLA)– a synthetic biodegradable and biocompatible (safe for use in human body) substance, that has been used as dissolvable stitches for years. As a Dermal Filler, these act as collagen stimulators and help the body rebuild collagen naturally.
Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)– another synthetic biodegradable substance. As dermal filler, it takes the form of tiny spheres that remain under the skin and provide support. They also contain collagen to give firm appearance and add to the structure of skin.

Dermal Fillers Lips
Dermal Filler lips are the most common type of Dermal Filler, that add volume to the lips. These contain synthetic hyaluronic acid and can be used for increasing the size of lips, restoring previous lip size, correcting shape of lips and smoothing wrinkles on sides of mouth.
Lip dermal fillers before and after not only show an increase in volume and shape of lips, but also enhance confidence of the patient. Therefore, long-term effects of derma fillers also include increase in self-esteem and contentment.
How Long do Dermal Fillers Last?
How long do Dermal Fillers last mainly depends on the material and consistency of the fillers, and the area of treatment. In addition, the longevity of dermal fillers is also affected by the body’s ability to metabolize the filler. Generally, the dermal fillers last from 6-12 months, and require touch-ups every 9-12 months.
Common side effects of Dermal Fillers are:
- Allergic reaction– if the body is sensitive to synthetic substance injected, there can be swelling and redness around the injection area.
- Vascular Occlusion– blood flow might be reduced or stopped when the filler is added in or around artery. If this happens, the skin will look pale and turn blue within 24 hours. If untreated, it might cause skin to turn black and die.
- Inflammatory Reaction– the filler can irritate the immune system and trigger an inflammatory reaction.
If you notice any of the side effects mentioned above, after the treatment, contact your healthcare provider immediately. Getting Derma Fillers from qualified and trained cosmetologists significantly reduces the risk of getting long-term effects of derma fillers.
