There is a common misconception that dermal fillers can cause skin to sag, but this is FALSE. Injecting facial fillers into the skin doesn't stretch the skin and cause more damage. If you decide to stop using dermal fillers, your skin will return to its previous state. If you are concerned about the long-term effects of dermal fillers on your skin, Dr.
Kim will be happy to discuss them with you and answer any questions you may have. Dermal filler will not cause skin to stretch or sag, once the filler naturally breaks down. The only case in which this would occur is if the face became too full with extreme amounts of dermal fillers, which is something we certainly don't do at Cityskin. A young face has the “triangle of youth”, which means that it is wider on the cheeks just below the eyes and narrower on the chin.
But over time, tissue and bone are lost in the middle of the face. With a deflated support system, the skin begins to sag and the face slowly transforms from triangle to trapezoid. Fillers counteract this aging process by adding fullness to the cheeks, which restores the skin to its original position, smoothing nasolabial folds (smile lines), puppet lines (folds that go from the corner of the mouth to the chin) and the double chin. At his practice on the Upper East Side, Dr.
Richard Swift, a plastic surgeon, sees more than 100 people to perform fillings every month. Doctors also use off-label fillers to add volume to the temples and reshape the bridge of the nose and simulate the effect of a chin implant. At her New York cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Pia Lieb offers a niche lip filling procedure where she injects filler into the mouth, where the smooth inner skin meets the outer skin of the lips.
People lose collagen all over their bodies, not just their faces. But fillers currently available in the United States lack the density needed for body work. Macrolane, a viscous hyaluronic filler from the Restylane family, has been popular in Europe for improving the body for several years. The future of these fillers here is directly related to the trickle of Food and Drug Administration approvals.
The dermal filler breaks down over a period of time, so the elasticity of the skin will adapt and return to the way it was before injection anyway. The three dermal fillers can improve the skin's supply of hyaluronic acid, reducing wrinkles and sculpting various facial features. Injectable treatments are performed after topical anesthesia is applied to the treatment area. Horizontally, dermal fillers work very fast and it's normal for the skin to take up to two weeks to fully settle on the face after injection.
FDA-approved and safe for most healthy adults, dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into soft tissues of face to increase collagen production and skin volume. Unless close attention is paid to injecting fillers, repeated applications in same place can cause skin to loosen and stretch, resulting in gradual need to use more filler product over time. The best way to minimize chances of stretching skin is to avoid using dermal fillers to over-inflate parts of face. If sagging skin is a concern for you, dermal fillers can offer a solution to help regain youthful appearance you miss.
