Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Dermal fillers consist of a gel that is injected into the skin in order to add volume to lips and lift up facial wrinkles and folds. They are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body. Once in the skin, dermal fillers work by creating volume. Some dermal fillers are derived from animal substances. Hyaluronic acid in all fillers used at IHP are non-animal.

How is a treatment performed? During treatment, the crystal-clear gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. When enhancing lips or facial contours, they add volume and shape to the treated area.

How long will the treatment session take? Around 30 minutes to one hour. The time differs somewhat, depending on the correction you wish to have performed and analgesia selected.

What can be treated? Dermal fillers can be used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles, lip enhancements and shaping facial contours. The most common areas are the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth) and the lips, although other sites can also be treated. Very superficial or very deep wrinkles may be difficult to correct.

How long does the effect of a dermal filler treatment last? The length of time the effect of a dermal filler treatment lasts is very individual and depends on many factors, such as the structure of your skin, lifestyle, age, degree of perfection demanded. Experience indicates that touch-up and follow-up treatments will add to the duration. Most people choose to have a new treatment within a year after the treatment of wrinkles and folds and within 6 months after a lip enhancement.
