Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that can improve volume in your face. There are many dermal filler types and brands, with the main categories being:

Hyaluronic acid fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® contain a substance that occurs naturally in your skin cells. Natural hyaluronic acid molecules expand with moisture, and synthetic molecules work exactly the same way. Injected hyaluronic acid binds with water inside your skin to add volume where needed. Hyaluronic acid fillers can treat wrinkles and boost volume.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres

Radiesse® is a CaHA microsphere filler. It works immediately to lend volume where you need it and also works over time to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. Radiesse is best for facial folds and may also help with other types of volume loss. It’s not for use in the lips.

At Sargon Dental, Dr. T expertly injects dermal fillers to give you a natural but impressive instant change. Dermal filler treatment is virtually painless thanks to local numbing anesthetics and formulas with built-in lidocaine. 

What areas do dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers primarily treat the middle and lower face, especially the areas where you lose volume as you age. Popular treatment areas include:

  • Nasolabial folds - filling in nose-to-mouth facial lines
  • Lips - lip plumping and reshaping
  • Midface - lifting sagging cheeks
  • Under eyes - filling under-eye hollows
  • Acne scars - filling in depressions and pits

If you have between-eyebrow or forehead lines, the better choice is a wrinkle reduction product like Xeomin® that reduces muscle movement in the area. 

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 12-24 months, with varied longevity based on the formula and the part of the face. 

Fillers usually last longest in the cheek/midface area because it’s the least-mobile part of your face. But, fillers in the lips and nasolabial folds, the most mobile parts of your face, still last around a year (maybe more) on average. 

You can maintain results with touch-up treatments at least once a year. Other treatments, such as facial rejuvenation and cell therapy, can help extend the results of your dermal filler injections by stimulating collagen production.
