What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
If you have areas of your face that have lost volume, where you would like to see more fullness, or where you want to get rid of lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers can provide you with results. These versatile fillers work almost everywhere on the face and can help you look younger with just one treatment.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Using a range of materials, dermal fillers add volume and enhance fullness in the facial features. At Baltic Beauty Centre, we offer safe, effective hyaluronic acid fillers. These contain a synthetic version of the hyaluronic acid found in our own skin, where it pulls in and holds moisture. When injected, hyaluronic acid fillers add immediate volume, but they will also increase their effectiveness over the next few days as the hyaluronic acid draws in more moisture.
What Can Dermal Fillers Treat?
Over time, facial skin loses some of its firmness, allowing lines and wrinkles to form. At the same time, areas like the cheeks can lose volume, losing their firm, full appearance. Dermal fillers can treat conditions such as:
- Address facial volume loss due to aging
- Smooth and soften lines and wrinkles
- Lift up and diminish sunken-in scars
- Add volume to the lips
- Restore fullness to the cheeks
Dermal fillers are also used as part of a “liquid facelift” to add lift and volume and can be used for a “liquid nose job” to add subtle reshaping to the nose.
What Kinds of Dermal Fillers are There?
At Baltic Beauty Centre, we offer three families of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. This allows our aestheticians to choose the best formula for your individual needs.
This family of products includes Voluma® XC to add enhanced volume to the cheeks and Ultra Plus® XC to smooth even deep lines and wrinkles. It also offers several options for lip plumping, addressing lines around the mouth, and treating the nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth.
This product family includes Lyft® for adding volume, Refyne® and Defyne® for moderate to severe smile lines, and Silk® to plump and enhance the lip area.
A third hyaluronic acid dermal filler, Revanesse® Versa™, contains unique microspheres with a smooth texture that makes them look more natural and softer when injected. Revanesse® Versa™ prides itself on containing no animal products.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Most hyaluronic acid fillers have a lifespan between six months and up to two years. Fillers in areas such as the lips have a thinner, more flexible formula, and the constant motion in that area will cause the product to break down faster. Dermal fillers in the cheeks have a sturdier, more resilient formula and can last 18 months or longer.
Can I Have Dermal Fillers and Botox® at the Same Time?
If you have expression lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers can help smooth them out, but the biggest name in wrinkle smoothing is Botox®. The two types of wrinkle treatments can work together to relax and smooth expression lines.
