Three Surprising Facts About Dermal Fillers

posted in: Cosmetic Dentistry | 0

Cosmetic treatments aim to limit the impact of a wide array of skin conditions on a person’s appearance. Dermal fillers belong to these cosmetic treatments and also referred to as facial fillers or injectables. These fillers deal with wrinkles around the mouth and other lines located on the face. They add definition to hollow or flat cheeks, improve scars, add volume to the temples, and rejuvenate under-eye circles. Through this, dermal fillers improve facial proportion.

For people interested in dermal fillers, Horizon West Dentistry has prepared a few interesting facts about this treatment.

Here are some interesting facts about dermal fillers: 

Dermal fillers cannot be used for butt or breast augmentation

Patients commonly ask whether or not dermal fillers are FDA-approved for breast or butt augmentation. Unfortunately for them, they are not. Using them on the butt and breast would take an excessive number of injections. It will also bring too many complications. The non-FDA-approved use of a dermal filler treatment will often result in unpleasant lumps, filler migration, increased susceptibility to infection, as well as other adverse side effects.

More men are starting to get dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are not only for women. In the past decade, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of men coming to undergo dermal filler treatments. This information is backed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeon, in which they state that dermal fillers are the second most common minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment for men. Men seek these fillers to retain or improve a chiseled appearance or to soften the appearance of wrinkles.

Dermal fillers increase the rate of collagen production

Collagen is very important to the skin. Unfortunately, the aging process causes the body to produce less collagen as time passes. Some dermal fillers can help slow this process by stimulating the collagen fibers deep within the skin. Through this, patients who continuously receive dermal fillers will require less and less treatment to reach their desired result.
