What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable alternative to cosmetic surgery which help to diminish signs of aging and boost rejuvenation. There are several types of dermal fillers currently in the market. The selection carried at Monarch Aesthetics are Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Radiesse. All carry hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring in our bodies and the key to smooth, flawless, and hydrated skin. It helps to restore volume and minimize the appearance of fine lines, contributing to a more youthful appearance.
How does dermal filler treatment work?
Your Monarch Aesthetics care provider cleans your skin first, which helps prevent infection. Some dermal fillers contain an anesthetic, but if needed, your provider applies a local anesthetic ahead of your filler.
Your treatment provider injects the filler carefully, and then, if necessary, massages it into position. Dermal fillers give you instant results, so you’ll see the changes before you leave the office. It’s important, however, to know that you’ll have some mild-to-moderate swelling immediately after your filler treatment. This will subside within a few hours of treatment, so you can see the beautiful outcome within a few days.
Which dermal filler is right for me?
First, you’ll have a consultation in which you’ll talk about your treatment goals with your Monarch Aesthetics care provider. At this time, your provider will recommend the filler options best for your particular needs.
Each dermal filler has unique properties that make it special. Juvéderm and Restylane both have a variety of formulas for different parts of your face. For example, Juvéderm Voluma® is specially formulated for mid-face volume loss (the cheek area) while Juvéderm Volbella® and Restylane Silk® are ideal for the lips. Radiesse is ideal for the folds around the nose and mouth.
How long do dermal fillers last?
It depends on a few different things, including the formula and the treated area. Generally, fillers can last anywhere from 6-24 months.
The longest-lasting dermal fillers are those formulated for the mid-cheek area, which can last up to two years. This is partly because of a unique formulation and partly because the mid-face area doesn’t move as much as other parts of your face.
In the lips, dermal fillers usually last for about 6-12 months. Your lips are one of the most movable parts of your face, which causes faster depletion of the filler.
In the wrinkles around your nose, mouth, or chin, dermal fillers usually last up to 18 months depending on exactly where it’s injected and the filler used.
