Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that add volume and soften your facial contouring. They are a versatile tool that can achieve a wide range of results. 

As you age, you lose a significant amount of your facial volume. Without that same structural support, your skin is left to pool and sag into folds, lines, and wrinkles. Dermal fillers act to restore that lost volume and help you look younger and more well-rested. 

Many dermal fillers are formulated from a synthetic type of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. Because your body recognizes the injected substance, the risk of a negative reaction is low. 

What issues can dermal fillers improve?

Some of the areas where dermal fillers can bring improvement include:

  • Cheek or midface region
  • Nasolabial folds running from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines running from the corners of the mouth to the chin
  • Hollows beneath the eyes
  • Vertical lip lines and lips

Dermal fillers can also smooth the backs of your hands or increase the volume and definition of your lips. 

Dr. Casey undertook a great deal of research before deciding which fillers to offer at Northshore Skincare. There are numerous choices on the market, in a wide array of formulations intended to treat different parts of the face. 

Some of the available fillers from the Juvederm® family of products include Volbella®, Vollure®, Voluma®, Juvederm Ultra®, and Juvederm® Ultra Plus. Choosing the right product is a critical part of a successful outcome. 


How long do the results of dermal fillers last?

Because dermal fillers come in so many formulations, there is no hard and fast rule. Some fillers last around 12 months, while others can last as long as two years. One of the benefits of hyaluronic acid-based fillers is that your body can absorb and process the filler material naturally over time. 

As your effects begin to fade, you can decide if you’d like to come in for a new round of treatments or explore other aesthetic treatments. Touch-up appointments are available if you’d like to add a bit more fullness here or there.
