Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that restore contouring and plumpness to features like your cheeks and lips that often show signs of volume loss as you age. Dermal fillers fill in lines, creases, or loose skin with gels made from hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other chemicals that occur naturally in your body.

There are several different brands and formulations of dermal fillers. Each type is made from different substances, formulated and designed for specific purposes. Your aesthetic provide can provide advice on which filler product is best for you.

What skin imperfections do dermal fillers correct?

The aesthetic experts at Palmetto Aesthetics and Wellness use dermal fillers to improve a variety of imperfections and signs of aging, including:

    Plump thin lips
    Enhance the contours of your cheeks
    Soften the appearance of creases and wrinkles
    Improve the appearance of depressed scars

Dermal fillers are an excellent option if you’re beginning to show signs of aging, but don’t want a more invasive procedure such as a facelift.

Who is a good candidate for dermal fillers?

If you’re generally in good overall health but want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and volume loss on your face. The team at Palmetto Aesthetics and Wellness provide detailed consultations and exams to determine if you’re a good candidate for dermal fillers as well as the best product to correct your specific skin concerns.

What happens during a dermal filler treatment?

The team at Palmetto Aesthetics and Wellness provides dermal filler treatments in 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of injections you need. Your aesthetician begins your session by examining your face and identifying the best locations for your injections. Then, they prepare your face by cleaning your skin and marking your injection sites.

Dermal filler injections take a little longer than Botox injections as your aesthetic specialist needs to examine their progress throughout your session, massaging the gel into place and ensuring they’re plumping and contouring your skin to provide your desired results. The team prides themselves on providing a youthful, but natural appearance.

Your results are noticeable as soon as your injections are complete. Your aesthetician gives you instructions on how to care for your skin after your treatment.
