Getting dermal filler training is smart for any medical aesthetics professional.
Dermal fillers are among the most popular ways to reduce wrinkles. The cosmetic treatment is fast, minimally invasive, not very painful and capable of producing noticeable results on the first round.
Since results from dermal fillers last for several months, the treatment doesn’t have to be repeated very often. Further, rising demand has lead to lowered prices, so many people can now afford to look their best with these injections. Many medical clinics and spas around the world are offering dermal fillers to their clients in addition to other medical aesthetic services.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body, which is injected directly into the sagging spaces in the dermal layers, below the surface of the skin. When collagen starts to weaken and break up with aging, it causes the skin above to sag into the spaces left behind, which results in wrinkles.
Injectable dermal fillers remedy this situation by filling in the spaces. Getting injected with a dermal filler doesn’t take much time and usually produces no side effects. The most anyone usually experiences is some temporary redness and swelling at the site of the injection.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of dermal fillers for the nasolabial folds (also called marionette lines or smile lines), cheeks and lips. Just like Botox, dermal fillers have off-label uses, too. Some of these include under the eyes, the nose, earlobes and the hands.
