Welcome to Ayana Dermatology & Aesthetics, where we are committed to providing you with the highest standard of care in aesthetic and medical dermatology. If you’re considering enhancing your appearance with dermal fillers, you may have questions about their cost, effectiveness, and whether they are the right choice for you. This guide will take you through everything you need to know about dermal fillers, from types and costs to aftercare and longevity.

Dermal Fillers Overview: What You Need to Know

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that restore lost volume, diminish wrinkles, and plump up specific areas of the face. Composed of various materials like hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid, they offer a minimally invasive approach to address signs of aging.

Key benefits of dermal fillers include:

  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Enhanced facial contours (cheeks, jawline, chin)
  • Fuller, plumper lips
  • Improved skin texture and hydration

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Ideal candidates for dermal fillers are:

  • Individuals with facial lines and wrinkles
  • Those looking to enhance facial contours
  • Anyone seeking more symmetrical facial features
  • Patients with realistic expectations and good overall health

Consultation with our board-certified dermatologist will provide you with a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Exploring the Different Types of Dermal Fillers Available

There are different types of dermal fillers available, each varying in composition, longevity, and targeted areas. Here are some common types:

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers: The most widely used, HA fillers like Restylane, Juvéderm, and Belotero retain moisture and improve skin elasticity. They are reversible with hyaluronidase.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers: CaHA fillers, such as Radiesse, use calcium-based microspheres to provide volume and stimulate collagen. 
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) Fillers: PLLA fillers work by stimulating collagen production in the skin over time. They are often used for deep facial wrinkles and folds. Sculptra is an example of a PLLA filler.
  • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers: PMMA fillers, including Bellafill, use microspheres to provide volume and stimulate collagen permanently, requiring administration by experienced professionals.
  • Autologous Fat Fillers: Autologous fat fillers, also known as fat grafting or fat transfer, involve using a person’s fat harvested from one part of the body and injected into another area to add volume. 
Ayana Dermatology & Aesthetics features powerful laser treatment, promoting skin rejuvenation and addressing specific concerns for improvement.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The longevity of dermal fillers varies depending on the type used, each with unique properties suited to different cosmetic needs:

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers: Popular fillers like Restylane, Juvéderm, and Belotero are designed to hydrate and add elasticity to the skin. Typically, HA fillers last from 6 to 12 months and can be dissolved earlier if desired using hyaluronidase.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers: Products such as Radiesse utilize calcium-based microspheres not only to add volume but also to stimulate natural collagen production, with results often lasting a year or more.
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) Fillers: Fillers like Sculptra work gradually to stimulate collagen, effectively treating deep wrinkles and folds with results that can last up to two years.
  • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers: Fillers including Bellafill use microspheres to provide both immediate volume and long-term collagen production. Due to their permanent nature, they require precise administration by skilled professionals.
  • Autologous Fat Fillers: This method uses the patient’s fat, harvested and transferred to enhance volume in other areas. The results from fat fillers can be long-lasting, but the procedure involves liposuction, making it more complex.

Aftercare Tips for Dermal Fillers: Maximizing Your Results

Following proper aftercare instructions is vital for optimal results and smooth recovery after your dermal filler treatment. Here are some key tips:

  • Minimize touching the treated area: Avoid excessive touching or rubbing for 24-48 hours to prevent swelling or migration of the filler.
  • Apply ice packs: Use a cold compress to reduce any initial swelling or discomfort.
  • Sleep on your back: Elevating your head while sleeping for a few nights can minimize swelling.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise: Wait for at least 24 hours before engaging in strenuous activities that could increase blood pressure.
  • Sun protection is key: Use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily to protect your skin and prevent premature aging.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated can contribute to longer-lasting results.
