Dermal Fillers: The Need To Knows 

Do you need to know more before getting dermal fillers? There are countless types of dermal fillers, and multiple ways in which they can be used.

While dermal fillers are minimally invasive and quite safe, committing to the procedure is still a big decision, so it's a good idea to have as much information as possible.

What Are The ‘Need To Knows’ About Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are created for different purposes, and some are thicker than others. Different brands and thicknesses have different functions. It is important that you choose a clinic that has a full understanding of dermal fillers and their brands, thickness and function. Our clinic is AAAHC Accredited for safety and efficacy reasons, combined with Dr. Melanie Carreon’s experience of over 12 years as a Dermal Filler Injector.

For example, dermal fillers are often used to plump and add volume to the lips or to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the lips. This area is delicate and the skin is quite thin. Using a thick dermal filler would not result in natural, flattering results. For this reason, using a thin dermal filler such as Restylane Silk is a good choice.

Other popular uses for dermal fillers are adding volume to cheeks or other contouring effects. This type of treatment requires a thicker filler. Products such as Radiesse or Juvederm Voluma are ideal in this situation.

The last several years have seen significant refinements in already remarkable formulations. Popular brands including Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse continue to fine-tune their offerings and have revolutionized the cosmetic procedure industry, giving women and men a powerful tool to help create amazing, natural and consistent results. If you are seeking a minimally invasive, safe cosmetic anti-aging procedure, dermal fillers are worth looking in to.
