As you age, your cheeks deflate and sag due to the loss of your facial fat along with weakness of supporting tissue, thereby contributing to under eyes hollowing, eyebags and dark circles
Your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon at Beverly Hills Aesthetics can inject dermal fillers to reinflate and lift the sagging cheeks, softening eyelid bags which helps smoothen out your face and reduce under eyes dark circles
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like materials that cosmetic surgeons inject under the skin to plump wrinkles, fine lines, and shallow facial outlines. Fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure in the United States owing to their affordability and lack of downtime.
What Are Dermal Fillers Made Of?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves dermal filler made of Hyaluronic acid (HA) – a sugar your body produces naturally.
These dermal fillers consist of ingredients that your body can break and absorb. That means you may have to get repeat injections from time to time to maintain your results. Your doctor will review the fillers and determine the right option for you.
Why Get Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers work to restore volume in certain parts of your face, including those under the eyes, to give you a fuller, younger-looking appearance.
You may choose to get dermal fillers to:
- Restore fullness to your eyelid skin.
- Improve the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
- Even out the hollow spaces between your eyelids and cheeks.
- Get rid of crow’s feet around your eyes that may have started appearing.
Dermal fillers have many other cosmetic uses for people seeking a youthful look. They may help ease wrinkles and fine lines, minimize the appearance of scars, and make lips fuller and plump up cheeks. They can also lift your eyebrows.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Some dermal fillers last six to 12 months, while others can last two to five years. The longevity depends on the type of filler you use. The most common fillers that doctors use are those that contain hyaluronic acid. HA fillers last six to 12 months or more.
What Can Affect the Durability of a Dermal Filler?
Aside from the type of filler you use, several other things can determine how long your filler lasts. The filler’s durability also depends on where the doctor uses it on your face, how much filler they inject, and how fast your body absorbs it.
A touch-up injection can help maintain your youthful look much longer. If you are unsure which dermal filler to use, your doctor can help you choose. They will guide you to select the best one for your needs and expectations.
