What Types of Dermal Filler Treatments are There?
Cheek Dermal Filler
Cheek dermal fillers specifically target the cheekbones and are an ideal choice for those who want defined and prominent features. Besides lifting the cheekbones, they also diminish fine lines around the area, adding youthfulness to the face and skin. Common ingredients used in them are hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite. However, compared to invasive treatments, cheek dermal fillers deliver a more natural-looking outcome, which means the cheekbones look proportionate and the changes quite subtle, enhancing the overall facial features.
Lip Dermal Filler
Lip dermal fillers involve injecting certain volumizing ingredients such as synthetic hyaluronic acid to make the lips look fuller. While most people opt for lip fillers when they naturally have thinner lips, it is also a procedure worth considering to correct the shape of lips in case of an irregular or asymmetric shape, to get rid of wrinkles on the lips, and to restore volume lost as a result of aging, sun damage, or smoking.
Chin dermal filler
Chin dermal fillers help in adding proportion to the chin, which brings an overall harmony to the face. Aging can lead to the loss of fat in the chin, thus causing jowls. While chin fillers help address this concern, they’re also quite useful for sharpening the chin for those who have rounder chins as a result of genetics. With chin fillers, the chin looks fuller, which improves front as well as side profile of the face.

What are The Benefits of Dermal Filler Procedures?
Dermal fillers have several advantages, especially for those who witness early aging signs. Various factors contribute to early or premature aging of the skin such as poor lifestyle, stress, pollution, etc., which eventually leads to loss of elasticity. Dermal fillers can benefit your skin in various ways, some of which are as follows.
When the signs of aging are quite evident, it is natural for people to look for remedies that offer instant results. It takes dermal fillers only about a week to two to settle into the skin. With minimal wait time, you’ll witness a drastic improvement in your fine lines and minimized scars, if any.
While aging causes a slow-down of natural collagen and elastin production in your skin, most dermal fillers comprise hyaluronic acid, which is the main ingredient that promotes collagen and elastin production. This helps restore the elasticity of your skin while adding a natural glow to your face.
Dermal fillers take only about 20 minutes, and since it is a non-invasive procedure, it does not require recovery time unlike those that involve surgery. You can visit the clinic any day, get the procedure done, and go back home. The slight swelling at the injection site diminishes in a day or two.
While exactly how long the results last depends on the type of filler, with the right care and upkeep after the procedure, and your lifestyle, the results can generally last anywhere between 6 to 18 months. Additionally, you can opt for short-term injections if you’re trying dermal fillers for the first time to assess the outcomes.
