Interested in learning more about Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected below the skin in order to do things such as:
- Restore lost volume (including “sunken cheeks”) and restore facial symmetry
- Smooth out lines around the mouth and nose (often referred to as “Marionette Lines”)
- Diminish vertical lines around the lips
- Enhance your lips by giving a plumped and fuller appearance
- Help sculpt and define the jawline for more definition
- Help fill in deep-set and/or acne scarring
- Give the neck or hands a younger, more rejuvenated appearance
How do fillers work?
As we age, our faces will naturally lose subcutaneous fat, leaving your facial muscles closer to the skin surface, resulting in smile lines, crow’s feet, and “11 lines” becoming more apparent over time. Not only this, but our skin tends to stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to that youthful look.
Dermal fillers can be injected in a multitude of areas including around the eyes, the cheeks, mouth, jawline, as well as the lip for a fuller appearance. Fillers basically work by filling in and smoothing out those deep set wrinkles along the face. The ingredients are nontoxic, nonallergenic, and are compatible with your body’s natural tissues.
What are the differences between each filler?
Here at Allure, we carry two different kinds of fillers- Hyaluronic Acid Fillers and Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers.
Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally within the skin- this is what helps keep your skin plump and hydrated! HA Fillers are typically a softer gel-like substance, with results generally lasting six to twelve months before the body naturally absorbs the particles.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite is also a naturally occurring substance within our bodies, found primarily within the bones. In Filler form, the calcium particles are nearly microscopic and contained within a smooth gel (with a slightly firmer and thicker feel than most HA Fillers), which dissolve and stimulate collagen production over time. These results, generally speaking, last about twelve months for most clients, allowing more time between “touch up” treatments.
How will I know which filler is best for me?
With so many dermal fillers on the market, it can be overwhelming and nearly impossible trying to decipher which filler would be the best one for your specific needs. Since each filler can vary in terms of texture, density, and desirable injection areas, it is best to schedule a Free Consultation with one of our providers in order to properly assess which would be the best for your personal goals.
During your Free Consultation, your provider can discuss with you your desired look and assess your area(s) of concern, at which time it will be decided which product would be best to obtain your desired personal aesthetic.
After your Filler injections are completed, you can expect to see an immediate result and improvement in the treated area, with full results appearing after only about a week.
What areas can I have fillers injected?
As mentioned earlier, Fillers are used to help smooth and “fill in” deep set folds most often on the face (lips, cheeks, nose, mouth), however, fillers can also be injected in different areas of the body including the neck, hands, and even derriere!
How long do fillers last?
This will depend on which filler is used and how your body reacts, however most dermal fillers last between six and 18 months.
