5 Things You Might Not Know About Dermal Fillers

Think you know all there is to know about dermal fillers? Chances are, there are a few things you might not know …

Let’s start with the basics: Dermal fillers help to improve facial proportions and symmetry by adding definition and volume to cheeks, lips, under-eyes, the chin and the jawline. Now, let’s take a look at some lesser-known dermal filler facts:

They Can Be Natural: Our dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) and resilient hyaluronic acid (RHA), which is a safe substance that occurs naturally in the body. HA delivers nutrients to the skin and helps retain hydration, softness and volume. It also promotes the production of collagen and elastin. Learn more about our fillers by clicking here.

They are Tailored to You: Looking for a different filler result than your friend? Great aesthetic nurse specialists (like Natasa and Caitlin at A360) will take the time to understand your desired result and work with you on a treatment plan. And we love an inspiration photo, too. Of course, results will vary by your face shape and structure but taking the extra step of open and honest communication with your injector helps ensure you see the result you want. Pro tip: Click here to learn more about achieving natural results from our owner, Charlotte!

Men Get Fillers, Too: The use of dermal fillers by men is on the rise as they are turning to the product to achieve a more chiseled or refreshed look. Like women, men often worry about appearing tired and sallow as they age, and dermal fillers are the perfect treatment to restore a youthful appearance.

The Upkeep is Manageable: Of course you will need regular treatments to maintain your look — but perhaps not as often as you’d think. Duration depends on many factors such as how much product was used, type of filler and where it was injected. Other factors that affect the duration of your treatment include smoking, metabolism and exposure to sun/UV rays, and more. The most important thing? Having an open, honest conversation with your injector about your maintenance schedule so you are both on the same page. 

Where You Get Injected Will Change: Aging results in the face structure starting a downward and inward descent, so our appearance can often become sunken due to the lack of collagen production (which aids elasticity). Fillers can help boost the volume of cheeks, define the jawline, minimize the appearance of underage bags, plump and define lips, and so much more. Plus, don’t be afraid to ask about fillers for your hands, as well!
