Dermal Fillers in Wilton Manors, FL

What are Injectable Dermal Filler Treatments?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered where all those wrinkles came from? Genetics can make aging feel harsh, but you don’t have to wear your genetics on your face. Medical science now offers many options for restoring your younger appearance.

Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, or wrinkle fillers, are medical implants approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help create smoother, fuller face and hand skin. While many dermal fillers are temporary medical procedures, results can last for years.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Genesis Health Institute professionals are dedicated to finding the dermal filler treatment that will achieve your desired result. In many cases they’ll also suggest enabling the production of collagen, a skin protein. The following is a list of popular injectable cosmetic filler products:

Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Results of this sugar treatment are temporary, usually lasting 6-12 months before the body absorbs the filler. Brand names include Juvéderm XC, VOLUMA, and Restylane.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

CaHA is a mineral used for treating deep lines and wrinkles while stimulating natural collagen production. This filler lasts about 12 months. Brand names include Radiesse.

Poly-L-lactic Acid

Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic polymer that helps treat deeper facial wrinkles and rebuild collagen. Results usually last about 2 years. Brand names include Sculptra Aesthetic.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

This injectable filler is a synthetic polymer that supports the skin, providing structure and firmness. Effects may last up to 2 years. Brand names include Bellafill and Artefill.
