What Are Fillers Made Of?

Posted on September 15th, 2021

It’s easy to see the visible effects of aging such as appearing tired or weathered. However, there’s more than meets the eye to what we see in the mirror. The process of aging actually occurs at a cellular level that contributes to an overall aged look. As the volume of tissues in the face recedes, lines lengthen and deepen. Fortunately, dermal fillers are a high-tech treatment option that can address aging at a deep level for a more refreshed, youthful look. Here’s what you need to know about fillers in Scottsdale and how they work.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers are gel-like products that are infused under the skin through injection to augment facial features, alleviate the appearance of creases and lines, and highlight shapes and angles. Made from compounds like calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-l lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate, fillers contain synthetic versions of complex sugars naturally found in the body. Fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed each year.

Which Filler Is Best?

Each filler has its own methodology, viscosity and injection depth. For this reason, it’s important to consult an expert injector who can help you select the right option for a successful and safe procedure. Your provider will take into account many different factors like your treatment area, the type of volume loss (i.e. lines, folds, wrinkles or scars), the degree of volume loss, and your medical history. From there, you can discuss your best options for your dermal filler goals.

What Happens During Filler Treatment?

Dermal fillers are a completely non-invasive treatment that can be performed right at our Scottsdale office. To begin, you’ll meet with an expert injector to determine your best options and create a customized treatment plan. Fillers can be performed without anesthetic, but a numbing cream can be supplied if you’re uncomfortable. Once you’re ready, the product is placed under the skin using a very fine needle and many precise injections to achieve artistic and natural-looking results. Once complete, you can return home.
