Dermal Fillers Q & A

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of aesthetics injection that adjusts your facial contours by adding artificial volume to certain areas.

Our knowledgeable team at MIWLS & Gulf Coast Aesthetics uses high-grade dermal fillers and careful techniques to refine the shape of your face without causing an unnatural or unconventional change to your appearance.

All dermal fillers contain a gel-like substance that holds its shape after it’s injected into your tissues.  Some brands contain a smooth gel, while others contain microspheres that act as a scaffold for new collagen growth.  The latter type usually has longer-lasting results and the former fades away as the gel dissolves with time.

Which Areas Can I Target With Dermal Fillers?

The most common area to receive dermal fillers is your face.  You can use them to treat certain features or contour irregularities that either change with age or are present naturally.

A few specific targetable features are:

  • Thin lips
  • Asymmetrical lips
  • Uneven nasal contours
  • Uneven jaw contours
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Sunken or bony temples
  • Bony, wrinkled hands
  • Recessed scars
  • Lower lid shadows
  • Large wrinkles next to your mouth


How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The amount of time your dermal filler lasts depends entirely on the dermal filler you use.  During your initial consultation at MIWLS & Gulf Coast Aesthetics, the team reviews your options and helps you select the filler best suited to reach your goals.

Many of today’s fillers last for one year or longer depending on the type and area you choose to treat.  Your tissues safely and naturally absorb the filler over time, so there’s no need for a second procedure to remove them.
