Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are thick injectable gels that the Defy Nature team strategically places beneath your skin to add volume to your face. They use their clinical skills and artistic eye to add small amounts of fillers in areas that lack a youthful plumpness. The results are natural and subtle, and you don’t have to get surgery for an instant lifting effect. 


Before your dermal filler injection appointment, the team helps you identify the parts of your face that can be realistically enhanced with dermal fillers. They also help you compare several dermal filler brands, including Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Bellafill®. Certain dermal fillers work best to treat specific features, and the Defy Nature team can guide you to the right products for your goals.

What are the results of dermal filler injections?

Dermal fillers can make big changes with small amounts of product. The team at Defy Nature uses dermal fillers to add volume to your skin, create angles, and optimize your facial symmetry. Specific enhancements you can make with dermal fillers are:


  • Plumper lips
  • More defined lip borders
  • Fewer wrinkles and lines
  • Reduced scars
  • Fuller cheeks


Your provider injects your fillers in small amounts at a time in order to build up to the best possible result. You won’t look blown-up or overdone. Instead, you’ll look more youthful and healthier than before. 

How long do dermal fillers last?

Different brands of dermal fillers last for different amounts of time depending on their ingredients. All dermal fillers contain ingredients that your body can absorb slowly and easily. Juvéderm and Restylane products both contain hyaluronic acid, a substance in your body that keeps your tissues hydrated and lubricated. They last for nine months or more. 


Bellafill is different: It contains polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads that act as a scaffold for your own collagen fibers to grow around. Because it implements your body’s rebuilding process, Bellafill yields results that last for up to five years total. 


The results of any dermal filler injections can make a notable change to your facial appearance, but the changes aren’t as drastic as the results of a surgical face-lift. However, dermal fillers are a great way to test enhancements and see if surgery is a good idea. 


To explore your choices of dermal fillers with the help of a highly trained aesthetics expert, call Defy Nature or book an appointment online today.
