Everything You Need to Know about Dermal Fillers

Keyword: dermal fillers kc

If you are thinking about getting dermal fillers or you have heard them mentioned somewhere and want to know more – you are at the right place. This article will give you a comprehensive overview of this cosmetic procedure that is designed to help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, that adds volume to soft tissue and fills in wrinkles. Some of the common parts of your face where you can have dermal fillers are around the eyes, mouth and jawline, cheeks, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.

How do they work?

Fillers smooth the deep-set lines by restoring lost volume to your face and plump areas. The reason we need it is that as we grow older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which help in giving us a youthful look. All of the experts agree that we generally start losing collagen at the age of 25. After this, your collagen and elastin levels start declining at a rate of about 2% per year and your body generally stops producing it by the time you are in your late twenties.

Dermal Fillers in KC have been used for decades to add lift or restore lost volume.

How long do dermal fillers last?

It typically depends on how your body reacts and which hyaluronic acid is used, but most dermal fillers usually last between six to 18 months.

Do dermal fillers have side effects?

It’s completely normal to experience a little bit of redness, discomfort, and bruising after the procedure. There are also some reactions related to the treatment and generally occur immediately after the needle injection and can include; swelling, redness, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the injection location. These reactions usually disappear shortly after injection and are resolved a few days after the injection into the skin.


Do dermal fillers hurt?

There may be a slight discomfort whilst the filler is being injected into the face, but this is usually minimized by applying an anesthetic cream before treatment. Some fillers also contain a pre-mixed local anesthetic, to provide further relief and alleviate as much pain as possible.


Is there a difference between Botox and dermal filler?

Yes, both Botox and dermal fillers have a 100% difference. Dermal fillers plump from below the wrinkle to smooth them out and promote the youthful look, whilst Botox stops the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

So how much can dermal fillers cost you? Well, that depends entirely on which fillers you opt for, how much you’re going to have done and who you pay to administer them.
