Dermal Filler FAQ

People used to go out and seek the magical fountain of youth to maintain their youthful skin, but luckily for us, our advancements in technology have provided us with dermal fillers to keep our skin looking its best. Facial Expressions MedSpa and Wellness Center in Nevada has all the beauty services from botox, to chemical peels and even dermal fillers to help you stay youthful.


What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that provide the skin with extra lift, fills in those creases, and tighten other areas of the face that are susceptible to showing signs of aging.


What Is In The Filler?

Dermal fillers are not harmful to our tissues. They are composed of a soft gel substance containing non-animal hyaluronic acid. Hyal-what?! Hyaluronic acid is something that already naturally occurs in our bodies. It is a sugar molecule found in our skin that’s main duty is to provide hydration and volume to our skin. Over time, hyaluronic acid is broken down resulting in our skin showing signs of aging.

Types of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, and Belotero.

Another type of dermal filler is made of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. Calcium hydroxylapatite is typically found naturally in bone and is used to stimulate your skin’s collagen. After it degrades, your skin is left looking beautiful with your own naturally made collagen!

There are also dermal fillers made out of synthetic lactic acid, which is also found in our muscles after we exercise. This lactic acid stimulates the natural growth of our body’s collagen and can have long-lasting youthful effects.


What Are The Benefits Of The Filler?

Of course, aging is not fun or even fully reversible, but with face fillers, we can boost our skin’s natural ability to retain a youthful appearance. Folds, wrinkles, and sunken eyes are all signs of aging that dermal fillers can leave a positive impact on. Dermal fillers can help smooth out and boost out these sunken areas of our skin, without having to go under surgical procedures.


How Long Do The Results Last?

The effects of dermal fillers have proven to have long-lasting effects of anywhere from six months to even two years depending on certain factors like product, age, and lifestyle!

The fact is everyone ages, but that does not mean we have to settle for wrinkly skin or sagging eyes. Facial Expressions MedSpa and Wellness Center is here to help you achieve that youthful glow again! Rewind the years, book your dermal filler appointment today!
