Dermal Fillers Are An Anti-Aging Solution For Your Patient

When you are dealing with a patient, he or she may be asking for any number of corrective procedures.  The bottom line is that dermal fillers work best on deep brow lines, naso-labial lines (that run from nose to mouth) and the lines around the eyes.  You can even use dermal fillers to add a bit of firmness to the jaw line.

Dermal fillers are the number one way that celebrities, models and women-in-the-know manage to get their youthful appearance back. If you know any woman over the age of 45 who has smooth plump skin, it is probably because she has had dermal filler injections.

Dermal fillers are so much more effective than “lifting creams” and way less invasive than a brow lift. I you client can get over a fear of needles, then this is the procedure for them.

Explaining How Dermal Fillers Work

Your client will ask you how dermal fillers work. The first thing that you should do is make
Naso-labial fold
absolutely sure that he or she is not mistaking dermal filler injections for Botox injections.  There is a big difference between the two modalities of treatment.

Dermal fillers have one specific, corrective task and that is to provide a naturally derived or synthetic material into the frown lines between the brows, jaw line irregularities, sunken eye areas and other places.  The skin is filled in until the depression or wrinkle fold is no longer visible.

On the other hand Botox paralyzes muscles in the area of the injection. The injections are usually made around the forehead and eyes to stop the muscle movements that create wrinkles in the first place.  Botox also does not plump out the area that has been treated.

Explaining the Difference Between Dermal and Natural Fillers

There are two basic kinds of dermal fillers:  synthetic and natural.

Naturally-derived fillers (derived from hyaluronic acid) have a much smaller risk of causing allergic reactions but the results, will only last from three to eighteen months because the filler eventually degrades.  Most people need at least one follow-up injection within a year to retain how good they look.

Synthetic fillers last much longer and are considered semi-permanent. They do not degrade but the face can form wrinkles around the injection sites.  Another risk with using a synthetic filler for your patient is that if the patient does not like the result, it cannot be removed. It is permanent.
