Katz Dermatology on Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are used in cosmetic dermatology as treatment to temporarily eliminate or reduce wrinkles, folds, and scars. These dermal fillers are made of a certain kind of carbohydrate called hyaluronan which is naturally present in our skin but declines as we age.

Dermal fillers are also called injectibles or soft-tissue fillers which are injected to the skin to increase volume and eliminating most, if not all, fine lines, wrinkles and other deep creases on the skin which enhances appearance and confidence.

How long does Dermal Fillers Last?

According to Dr. Matthew Katz, dermal fillers are temporary and would last within 6 to 18 months, depending on the filler used for the cosmetic treatment. Dermal Fillers as said are temporary and would require maintenance.
