Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substances injected beneath the surface of your skin to enhance facial volume. They work to smooth any lines, folds, and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel.

To understand how dermal fillers work, it helps to think about the changes that create visible signs of aging. When you’re young, your skin has a thick layer of collagen that provides the padding and fullness commonly referred to as a baby face.

As you age, you lose much of that collagen and your body doesn’t produce enough to replace that lost volume. Your skin is left to sag and pool into lines, wrinkles, and folds. The damage done by years of sun exposure and environmental toxins also exacerbates the signs of aging.

Dermal fillers temporarily replace lost facial volume and prompt your body to produce new collagen, giving you lasting results.

What areas can dermal fillers enhance?

There are multiple dermal filler formulations, each of which is created to address specific areas of your face. Dermal fillers can enhance volume in the following areas:

  • Cheeks
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial folds running from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette lines running from the corners of your mouth to your chin
  • Depressed acne scarring

There are even dermal fillers that can plump your lips and smooth vertical lines above the lips.

What is JuvedermⓇ?

Juvederm is a family of dermal fillers created using a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. These fillers smooth lines and wrinkles in various areas of your face, with effects lasting for months.

Over time, your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid, and the effects fade. At that point, you can decide if you’d like to pursue additional treatments to extend the effects.

What is BellafillⓇ?

For those who want a more lasting solution, Bellafill is a permanent dermal filler. The product is made of a combination of bovine collagen microspheres and lidocaine. The particles are so tiny they are barely detectable with the human eye. Your body cannot absorb the microspheres, which is why Bellafill injections deliver permanent results.

Bellafill is used to treat nasolabial folds and to plump depressed acne scarring on the cheeks, smoothing skin and giving it a more uniform texture.

Bellafill isn’t right for everyone, and it’s absolutely critical to choose a provider who has the training and experience needed to properly administer these injections. Dr. Brooks uses Bellafill to create gorgeous and lasting results and works with you to determine if this product is right for your aesthetic goals.
