You may have heard of dermal fillers, but still be unaware of what they are and what they can do. In short, dermal fillers are injectable solutions that provide a minimally invasive way to significantly reduce signs of aging. However, dermal fillers are not simply a way to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, they are a way to produce a softer, fuller, overall more attractive look to several areas of your face.
How Dermal Fillers Work
Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña offers different types of dermal fillers, allowing him to address the specific needs of each patient. Some of the dermal fillers offered by Dr. Peña are made out of collagen-based materials while others may contain active ingredients such as hyaluronic or poly-L-lactic acid.
No matter what the active ingredient, all dermal fillers work by restoring lost molecules in your skin, providing a naturally soft and youthful appearance in as little as one office visit. Some dermal fillers may produce results for several months while others may continue to provide a softer appearance for one or more years. Your results will vary, but the filler best for your skin can be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Peña.
