Fillers in Michigan

Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment that is used to add volume and smooth out wrinkles in the skin. Injectable dermal fillers are applied in areas of the skin where a patient wants to lessen lines, wrinkles, or scars. The dermal fillers actually fill in the space underneath the skin, lifting it and making it appear smoother and fuller. They can also be used to enhance the contours of the face or body and create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are a popular choice for those looking to refresh their appearance without the need for surgery.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to fill in the surface underneath the skin. This lifts the skin to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines. This gives the skin a more youthful appearance and can also help reduce the appearance of scarring.

What are dermal fillers made of?

Natural substances that the body creates on its own, such as hyaluronic acid, usually last about three to six months because the body reabsorbs them over time. Synthetic substances, on the other hand, last years longer because they stay in place without being absorbed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dermal Fillers

When you have dermal injectable fillers, it means that you’ve received treatment underneath your skin to reduce lines and fill in volume. These dermal fillers are either made from natural or synthetic ingredients and can be temporary or permanent.

Injectables are an umbrella term for many of the treatments that prevent wrinkles from forming, reduce the appearance of ones already there, and improve the effects of both facial fat loss and reduced collagen.

Injectable fillers are one type of injectable treatment. They treat static lines such as facial wrinkles on the cheeks and lips.

Botox is an FDA-approved neuromodulator, which means that it affects the nerve communication between the brain and the muscles around the injection site. Botox stands for botulinum toxin A, which is a frozen bacteria that is injected around the facial muscles. This frozen bacteria lasts for a few months and prevents the brain from sending signals to the muscles so they don’t move.

Injectable dermal fillers, on the other hand, add volume to the face where facial wrinkles have already formed. These are often made with synthetic forms of naturally occurring substances, like hyaluronic acid. Over time, the body reabsorbs these substances, so the effects of dermal fillers aren’t permanent.

Even with the most qualified cosmetic surgeon, sometimes FDA-approved dermal filler injections can have undesirable side effects or can end up giving undesirable results. In these cases, it is possible to remove filler injections.

To do this, your provider will inject another substance, called hyaluronidase, into your skin. This dissolves the dermal filler to bring your skin back to its natural state.
