What is in dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable that is a soft, gel like substance that is injected under the skin which can address a number of age-related concerns you may have including:
- Smoothing of deep under-eye circles
- Lifting of cheekbones
- Volumizing if the lips
- Smoothing of lip lines and creases that run from the side of the nose to the corners of your mouth; and
- Rejuvenation of your hands
While not all dermal fillers are created with the same substances, most of them are composed with common compounds like hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that can already be found in our skin. It plays a major role in keeping our skin hydrated and volumized.
Other substances that are commonly found in dermal fillers include a numbing agent that is premixed, this helps to maximize the comfort during your treatment. Calcium hydroxylapatite may also be included, it is a mineral-like compound that is found in human bones. It was previously used in plastic surgery to help with the density and reconstructive aspects during surgery and has a long-proven track record of safety.
As well synthetic fillers are included like Poly-L-lactic acid which helps to stimulate your collagen production. Dermal fillers that use this ingredient are different from other fillers, as the results are gradual instead of instantaneous. It adds volume over several months and stimulates the body’s own collagen production.
All dermal fillers are created differently to suit the needs of each individual looking for a specific desired result. Call Dr. Rahi today to book a consultation appointment to learn which dermal filler would be right for you and have any questions you may have about dermal fillers.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Depending on which brand of dermal filler you end up getting at your treatment will depend on the longevity of the results. No dermal filler is permanent; however, they offer a maintained look that can be used for years. Usually, the effects of dermal fillers can last upwards of three months to two years. Again, it does depend on which product you will have injected at the time of your treatment and where on the body the product is being injected. Other matters may also come into effect with how long dermal fillers last as well. Make sure to talk to Dr. Rahi today about what dermal filler would be right for you, and the results you are looking for.

What age should you get fillers?
There could be several different ages ranges you could start to get fillers. If you are looking to fight signs of aging, you can start as early as in your mid-20’s. Since your body starts to lose bone density and collagen around the age of 26, this is when most of our patients start to get maintenance injections. Starting earlier on, it has been shown that you will require less product once you are older.
However, if you do not feel comfortable starting in your mid-20’s you can start whenever you feel it is necessary. We have patients who come for their first visit from mid-20’s up to their mid-50’s.
