Fillers

Best Fillers in Homestead

FUN FACT: What is The Best Filler in 2022? Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the dermal filler choice for most. This natural component of the skin’s connective tissue is the most common filler used for wrinkles elimination. The best part? The results typically last about six months to one year!

What are fillers?

Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features: restoring a smoother appearance.

How long do fillers lasts?

While results may vary, some fillers can last for 6-12 months. On the other hand,  some other dermal fillers can last 2-5 years. The most commonly used dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that aids in the production of collagen and elastin.

What are the types of dermal fillers?

There are many types of dermal fillers. In addition to “off-the-shelf” fillers that use synthetic (manmade materials) and substances that naturally occur in your body, we can use fat from your own body! 

The types of off-the-shelf fillers include:

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring acid in your skin. It gives your skin volume and keeps it hydrated. With age, your body stops making hyaluronic acid. Results from HA injections usually last six months to a year.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a type of filler that consists of a substance you have in your bones. Results from these fillers typically last around a year. Healthcare providers usually use CaHA fillers for deeper wrinkles.

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a substance that helps your body create its own collagen. Healthcare providers usually use poly-L-lactic acid to smooth deep wrinkles on your face. The results can last two years or more.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) fillers consist of collagen and very small balls that stay under your skin after your healthcare provider injects them. The balls give your skin volume and keep it firm.

What are the advantages of dermal filler procedures?

There are many! Most people see results of dermal fillers right away. The injections usually take less than an hour, and you can get them right here at Epic Beauty & Wellness. Because it’s a nonsurgical treatment, recovery time is minimal.

Depending on the type of filler you receive, results can last months or even years. Some fillers work for as long as two years. Dermal fillers are also typically less expensive than elective surgical procedures like a facelift.

What is the recovery time after getting dermal fillers?

While everyone is different, most people can get back to the activities they enjoy immediately after getting dermal filler injections. We may recommend taking a break from rigorous exercise or physical activity for a day or two, but that will be discussed at your FREE consultation!
