Dermal Fillers Q&A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers available at Artem Med Spa are aesthetic injections containing a natural substance called hyaluronic acid, poly-l-lactic acid, calcium, or other vital ingredients that improve facial or body contours. The practice provides Juvéderm®, Sculptra®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, and other injections to add volume to lax or imperfect skin. 

What are the benefits of dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers provide the following cosmetic benefits:

  • Reduced lines and wrinkles
  • Plumper lips 
  • Smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin
  • Less laxity (skin sagging)
  • Reductions in hallowed eyes
  • Improved facial or body contours
  • Optimal facial symmetry

Common treatment areas for fillers include the back of your hands, lips, cheeks, areas near your mouth and nose, jawline, and under your eyes. 

To determine which dermal filler injections are best for you, the Artem Med Spa team discusses your beauty goals and medical history. They examine your skin and tailor a cosmetic injectables plan that offers you the most anti-aging benefits. Artem Med Spa also provides Botox®.

Which dermal fillers are available?

Artem Med Spa provides the following types of dermal fillers:

Hyaluronic acid fillers

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, including Juvéderm and Restylane products, are soft and gel-like. They result in softer folds, better facial symmetry, reduced lines, and a younger appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that your skin already produces. 

Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers

Calcium hydroxylapatite is a natural substance that’s present in your bones. It’s found in Radiesse® cosmetic injectables and often used to treat deep wrinkles and lines. Radiesse also helps stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. 

Poly-l-lactic acid fillers

Poly-l-lactic acid is a biocompatible substance that’s been used for many years in dissolvable stitches and other medical devices. Sculptra and other injectables containing poly-l-lactic acid are collagen stimulators, smoothing deep lines and wrinkles and rebuilding collagen.

What happens during dermal filler injections?

Before dermal filler injections, your specialist cleans and numbs the treatment area and injects filler substances under the surface of your skin. The results are often immediate, with continued improvements in treated tissues developing over time. 

Each injection takes a minute to two to complete, and you can expect to receive multiple injections during each treatment.

The effects of dermal fillers often last 6 months up to 2 years or longer, depending on the type of treatment you undergo. Repeat injections offer you long-lasting results.
