Dermal Fillers Q & A

What causes the visible signs of aging?

In your youth, your skin is filled with collagen, which acts as a layer of padding to give your features a youthful, rounded appearance. Collagen is what creates a “baby face,” characterized by soft facial contours and smooth skin. 

As the years go by, you naturally lose much of that collagen. Without the same level of padding, your skin is left to sag and pool. Lines, wrinkles, and folds develop, making you appear older, more tired, and in some cases, even grumpy or worried. 

Your body won’t produce significant levels of new collagen on its own, which is where dermal fillers come into play. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that act to replace lost facial volume.  Most are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your body. Hyaluronic acid has a gel-like consistency, and when injected beneath your skin, it refines the contours of your face. 

Even more importantly, dermal fillers stimulate your body to produce new collagen. That tissue regeneration creates lasting results that extend even after your body has absorbed the dermal filler ingredients. 

What issues can dermal fillers address?

There is a wide range of dermal filler options on the market. Each is formulated to deliver a specific set of results. Many are customized for certain areas of your face, while others can be used in multiple areas. 

Some of the contouring areas where dermal fillers can restore or enhance volume include:

  • Mid-face, or your cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds, or the lines running from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Marionette lines, or the lines running from the corners of your mouth to your chin
  • Under your eyes
  • In or around your chin

There are even formulations that can boost the volume of your lips, creating a rounder or more clearly defined pout. 

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers have been in use for many years, with an excellent safety track record. The products chosen by Hush L.A. Medspa represent some of the best fillers available, and have undergone years of clinical trials. 

Having dermal fillers administered is a serious procedure and one that should only be performed by trained professionals under proper medical supervision. Hush L.A. Medspa has recruited a team of outstanding aesthetics practitioners who undergo ongoing training. 

Dermal fillers also require a trained artistic eye to know exactly how much product to use and where to place the injections to achieve optimal results. This is not a service that should be performed without advanced training and extensive experience.
