Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that can restore shape and volume to your face. As the years go by, your skin loses some of the fat and collagen fibers that keep it plump and tight. This results in drooping and wrinkles that often make you look older than your age. 

This process can impact your self-esteem and may result in depression and other consequences to your mental health.

With dermal fillers, you can counter some of the common signs of aging affecting your appearance. Many dermal fillers are long lasting and give you substantial but natural looking results.

At Jana HealthCare, Dr. Farhat can work with you to identify your problem areas and select the appropriate dermal filler.

How can dermal fillers alter my appearance?

Patients use dermal fillers to tweak their appearances in several small but impactful ways. Dr. Farhat often recommends dermal fillers to:

  • Conceal nose bumps
  • Alleviate wrinkles and folds
  • Restore volume to your cheeks
  • Add volume to your lips
  • Add volume to your hands
  • Contour your chin and jaw
  • Correct sunken eyes
  • Improve the symmetry of your face

Dermal fillers make many alterations that are similar to those achieved with plastic surgery without the risks that come with getting surgery. 

Since the results fade over time, dermal fillers are also a great way to test small changes to your appearance before committing to a permanent surgical adjustment. 

What types of dermal filler can I get?

Jana HealthCare offers two popular brands of dermal fillers. After assessing your needs, Dr. Farhat decides which one will be the most beneficial for you. You can opt for:

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a brand of dermal filler containing calcium hydroxyapatite as its active ingredient. The injections alleviate wrinkles and give your face the volume it needs. Calcium hydroxyapatite is also effective in stimulating collagen production in your skin to maintain your younger look for up to a year and a half. 

Belotero®

Belotero is one of the latest brands of dermal fillers to hit the market. Its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance already produced by your body that binds to water molecules to keep your skin hydrated and plump. With Belotero, you can enjoy a fuller face with fewer wrinkles for six months to a year.

If you feel that you aren’t aging gracefully, Dr. Farhat can enhance your natural beauty with dermal fillers. To find out if you’re a candidate and learn more about the products, call Jana HealthCare or book your consultation online today.
