What is the Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Volumizers?

Potential cosmetic patients like you have a lot of treatment options available to you. You no longer are relegated to undergoing extensive and invasive surgery to improve your looks. You can now utilize safer and less invasive measures to turn back the hands of time and regain a youthful and healthier facial appearance. When you want to improve the quality, tone, feel, and overall look of your face, you may have heard about dermal fillers and volumizers. But unlike volumizers that you can buy over-the-counter, dermal fillers actually offer results!

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are typically made out of hyaluronic acid, which is an organic substance found in all living organisms. Hyaluronic acid, or HA as it is simply known, has a low rejection rate and is capable of providing instant improvements in the way your face looks and feels.

Dermal fillers that contain HA can be used to:

• Fill in lines and wrinkles
• Restore facial volume and fullness
• Plump the lips
• Enhance facial contours
• Ease or eliminate the appearance of scars
• Rebuild contour deformities
• Remove shadows in certain areas

Dermal fillers are used primarily to improve the signs of aging and can be utilized alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic rejuvenation procedures, such as BOTOX®. They cannot tighten or replace lost tissue. They also do not provide long-lasting or permanent results. However, the treatments can be safely repeated as needed at our office for ongoing benefits.

Choosing Between Fillers and Volumizers

So, how can you decide between dermal fillers and volumizers? Your choice may be made easier when you consult an experienced cosmetic doctor who can diagnose your condition accurately and help you determine the best course of your treatment for it.

Our doctor will also take into consideration factors like your age, overall health, and what lifestyle habits, such as smoking or going out in the sun, you have. Based on this information, we will determine if you can benefit from dermal fillers.

We warmly invite you to schedule a consultation at Doctors MedSpa to see if dermal fillers can work for you. This is your opportunity to learn as much as you can about the procedure, as well as ask any questions you may have. Contact us today to schedule an appointment at our office in Little Rock!
