Dermal Fillers, where are they normally used?
I discovered that most people who make the effort to maintain quality of health and lifestyle also take the time and effort towards their aesthetics, their looks, and their presentation. I was surprised to find this field has such strong growing demand. The level of technology and innovation in Cosmetic Medicine over the past 20 years has been phenomenal. There are so many treatment options that can be tailored to patients' needs. That is why in 2021 I completed my certification in Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine and I am very excited to enter this specialty and render treatments
How long do dermal fillers last?
This depends on a variety of factors, including where they are applied, and which product is used. The doctor will evaluate each individual and the locations to be injected and recommend a filler to provide the best results. Fillers last between 1-2 years; small touch-ups may be required in the interim; and special longer-term fillers last 2-4 years.
