What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are not to be confused with Botox, injectable drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration to smooth lines and wrinkles. The latter “freezes” muscles to reduce wrinkles, while dermal fillers are injectable implants approved by the FDA to help smooth skin and wrinkles. As the name implies, they are injected beneath your skin using a needle.
According to the FDA, there are four categories of fillers. Each is named for the type of material they’re made with:
- Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body and already found in your skin and cartilage. Generally, fillers made with hyaluronic acid last between 6-12 months.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite is a mineral that is found in our bones. Fillers made with this material last up to 18 months.
- Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable synthetic material that’s also used to make medical products like dissolvable stitches. These fillers may last up to two years.
- Polymethylmethacrylate beads are the only filler that can’t be absorbed by your body, meaning the results are permanent. They’re only used around the mouth.

Dermal fillers can be very helpful for those with early signs of aging or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

It is important to remember that dermal fillers require temporary treatments for facial aging and ongoing treatments for long-term results.
