- Some Dermal Fillers are Natural. Collagen and hyaluronic acid occur naturally within the body. They are also naturally derived dermal fillers that are on the market today.
- Dermal Fillers are Usually Temporary. Dermal fillers normally last anywhere from 5 to 18 months, depending on the brand of product and where it is injected. But if you’re looking for a dermal filler that lasts longer we have great news for you! In the largest and longest study on injectable fillers, Bellafill® outperformed in patient satisfaction, longevity, and safety for filling in smile lines. At the study’s completion, 83% of patients were still satisfied with their results 5 years after treatment.*
- They’re Not Just for Women. Men are requesting dermal fillers more than ever before. The use of injectable fillers in men grew 6% in 2015. The difference between men and women is that men are usually treated with non HA fillers to avoid looking puffy and to achieve a more chiseled appearance.
- Dermal Fillers Stimulate Collagen Growth. Nothing will ever permanently stop the body from losing its natural collagen, but dermal fillers do have the ability to slow the depletion process. Over time, some brands of dermal fillers will even stimulate the growth of collagen at the site of injection. This will result in patients who require less treatment and product over time to achieve the same look.
