What are Dermal Fillers? How long do fillers last?

Apr 19, 2022

Dermal fillers, sometimes called  as  soft tissue fillers, are substances designed to be injected beneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness. Results of Sculptra & Radiesse improve over time. Both fillers trigger natural collagen production, leading to longer-lasting results. Radiesse typically lasts for 18 to 24 months. Belotero Balance hyaluronic acid filler treats lines and wrinkles around the mouth and chin.

Substances used in dermal fillers include:

  • Calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a mineral-like compound found in bones
  • Hyaluronic acid, which is found in few fluids and tissues in the body that add plumpness to the skin
  • Polyalkylimide, a transparent gel that is compatible with the body
  • Polylactic acid, which stimulates the skin to make more collagen
  • Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA), a semi-permanent filler
