3 Things You Didn’t Know About Dermal Fillers

By Belo Medical Group on October 29, 2018

While over-the-counter creams are there to slow down signs of aging, dermal fillers are quickly becoming a popular solution for men and women. It’s an injectable treatment that plumps and smoothens wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin in the face, neck, or hands.

Curious? Here are a few more facts to help you know about dermal fillers and discover why it might just be the anti-aging fix you need!

1. It’s different from Botox

While both use needles to treat wrinkles and lines in the face, Botox and dermal fillers are actually very different from each other. Dr. March Babaran of Belo Medical Group says, “Botox is a toxin that relaxes the muscles. Dermal fillers contour, volumize, and lift—it’s a totally different thing.”

2. There are several types of Dermal Fillers

Just like your skincare products, there are many other variants of dermal fillers. “The most popular dermal fillers that we use is hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of our body,” Dr. March says. “In the past, we used to inject fillers [that are] silicone-based or foil. But now, there are different types of hyaluronic acid depending on the needs. For example, the type of hyaluronic acid we use for lip injections is softer compared to the type of hyaluronic acid that we would use for the temple or cheeks.” To know which one best suits you, click here to schedule a consultation with a Belo doctor.

3. It can also be an alternative solution for other surgical procedures

Although the results that you get from dermal fillers are different from what you would see from a surgical procedure, it’s a great alternative and anti-aging fix for those who are not yet ready to undergo an operation. “Since dermal fillers have been around for more than a decade, we’ve been able to establish our expertise when it comes to this treatment,” says Dr. March. “It can be used to contour, lift, and define the chin, cheeks, jawline, or other areas of the face.”
