What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft substances injected under your skin to improve its appearance. It is a skin tightening treatment that can remove lines and wrinkles from your hands and face, revitalize your skin, and make you look young again. 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved four types of fillers for skin tightening treatments. These are:

  • Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra)
  • Polymethylmethacrylate (Bellafill)
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse)
  • Hyaluronic acid (Esthélis, Prevelle, Puragen, Restylane, Elevess, Hylaform, Captique, Juvederm, Perlane)

Your body fat can also be used as a facial filler. The doctor will extract a small amount of fat from another part of your body, process it, then inject it into the treatment area. Dermal filler shots are generally safe if you get them from a licensed and experienced medical practitioner. Our clients have never reported any health conditions after their treatment.

Unsafe Dermal Fillers Practices

Unfortunately, many people do things that create life-threatening problems for themselves. In our experience, any of the following can set you up for fatal health issues:

  • Getting dermal filler shots in certain areas of your body
  • Using unsafe or unapproved materials
  • Getting dermal filler shots from an unqualified, inexperienced nurse, doctor, or surgeon.

When clients come to our offices or call for the first time, we give them information to help them know what they can and can’t achieve with dermal fillers. For instance, the FDA warns against using fillers for 

  • Making your muscles look fuller
  • Breast or butt enhancements
  • Large-scale body contouring

Using fillers in these manners can cause permanent disfigurement, scars, lifelong health complications, and even death. Give us a call today to learn more about how we stay aware of the FDA-approved injection options.

Buying Dermal Fillers On The Internet: What You Should Know

We’ve heard about people thinking about online dermal fillers and their potential cost-effectiveness. We pride ourselves on providing affordable cosmetic skin treatments, so we always stay aware of online products and what is out there. Many of the cheap dermal fillers we find online may be harmful in some ways.

Some of them contain substances other than approved fillers. The ones that have fillers are often contaminated with hair gel and other toxic substances. Such substances can cause allergies and infection and cause your skin cells to die.

We also found many online products and services that offered dangerous chemicals like silicone and oils.

Unlike silicone breast implants that remain intact, liquid silicone can enter your bloodstream and cause stroke. Unapproved oils can also cause adverse reactions in your skin and body. Without using the right injection technique, anything can go wrong. You can have lumpiness, swelling, dead skin cells, or even embolism (blot clot), leading to blindness.

Furthermore, it is very dangerous for you to inject yourself or get an untrained and certified person to inject you. If you are looking for dermal fillers without medical complications, consult an experienced, licensed practitioner. We provide safe dermal filler shots for our clients. If you want one, give us a call today or fill out our online form.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are like collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring substance in the body that makes your skin appear smooth, full, and youthful. However, collagen levels decrease as we age, causing lines and wrinkles to appear. A dermal filler fills in the areas with low collagen so that you restore your skin’s volume and restore its smooth, full and youthful appearance.

How Long Do Dermal Filler Treatments Last?

Dermal fillers can last for a long time. The fillers we use can last for up to a year. That makes it a long-lasting solution compared to wrinkle relaxers such as Botox and Dysport, which rarely last more than four months. However, we advise our clients to have a touch-up or another full treatment around the six months mark. It is to ensure you don’t lose any of the benefits from the treatment.

How Painful Are Dermal Filler Shots?

None of our clients have reported discomfort during the procedure. So we can say the procedure is relatively painless. There are two reasons for this. First, most of the shots we use contain lidocaine. Lidocaine is a numbing agent.

Secondly, we ensure our clients are comfortable and relaxed during that entire procedure. There is no need for a resting/recovery period. You can get back to work after the procedure. You are in safe and experienced hands when you get your skin treatments from us at Lux Injectables.

Are Dermal Fillers Only Used For Removing Wrinkles?

No! Dermal fillers are popular for removing wrinkles, but they offer more. You can use them to remove or reduce the dark circles and bags under your eyes. You can also use them to soften acne scars.

Our best part? Lips! Dermal fillers are great at making your lips appear fuller and smooth. Call us if you have any area of your body that requires cosmetic treatment. Even if dermal fillers don’t work for those areas, there will be other skin treatment options. After all, cosmetic skin treatment is what we do.
