What are Cosmetic Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin, adding volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are hyaluronic acid fillers, and while that sounds harsh, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body and most living things. Hyaluronic acid binds with water molecules and is responsible for skin hydration, tissue engineering, and support. In contrast, Botox relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines between your eye brows. Those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, should not use cosmetic fillers.
Restylane is an FDA approved compound that closely resembles hyaluronic acid found naturally in our bodies. Restylane was the first dermal filler approved by the FDA and has been safely used in cosmetic procedures for years. Restylane treatments add fullness and volume to the skin and noticeably reduces visible wrinkles, lines, and folds in the skin. You’ll see Restylane results immediately, and its affects can last six months or longer.
Like Restylane, Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid injectable facial filler used to soften deep folds and smooth wrinkles in patients. Juvederm is primarily used to treat smile lines creating a more youthful appearance and reverse the signs of aging. Juvederm is also used to fill in scars and hollow areas of the skin. Juvederm treatments can last from 9 months to over a year depending on the treatment area.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Because dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are made with hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the body, yes, dermal fillers are safe. Allergic reactions are exceptionally rare and reported side effects generally include slight bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection site.
