Are Fillers Safe?

There’s a reason more than 2.5 million dermal filler injections are given each year. These convenient, anti-aging treatments restore volume where your face loses it through the years, helping with everything from wrinkles to thinning lips. 

Still, though, will these beautifying treatments come at a cost? To give you peace of mind and your ideal cosmetic results, Dawn Woods, ARNP, and our dedicated team at Revive Medical Aesthetics have chosen to offer only the safest dermal fillers. Let’s take a look at the specific fillers we offer to our patients in Longview, Washington, and the surrounding areas. 

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers

The two dermal fillers we offer — Juvéderm® and Restylane® — both primarily consist of hyaluronic acid. The word “acid” might give you pause, but hyaluronic acid is actually a gooey substance your body naturally produces to cushion your joints and your tissues, including your skin.

By using this naturally occurring substance to fill in the volume where your face needs it, both Juvéderm and Restylane can replenish your skin and rejuvenate your youthful appearance. 

Specifically, these dermal fillers can:

Clearly, these fillers are versatile. And knowing that they’re derived from a naturally occurring substance helps many people feel more comfortable getting them. But how do you know they’re truly safe?

FDA-approved dermal fillers

To ensure we’re only offering you the best, safest cosmetic treatments, we’ve chosen to offer Restylane and Juvéderm because they have both been extensively tested and ultimately approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

That’s the same federal organization that clears pharmaceutical drugs for distribution and works to keep our food supply safe. In the United States, they’re the leading agency for testing things like cosmetic treatments and determining whether or not they’re safe for public use. And because both dermal fillers we offer have their green light, you can rest easy. 

All told, dermal fillers are safe. They primarily use hyaluronic acid to replenish volume in your face and they have FDA approval. What’s more, they can deliver results that last a year or more with a treatment that takes just minutes and comes with no downtime.
