What are Dermal Fillers?
Injectable dermal filler (injectable cosmetic filler, injectable facial filler) is a soft tissue filler injected into
the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these dermal fillers are
temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one
injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect. The effect lasts for about six months or longer.
Successful results depend on health of the skin, skill of the health care provider, type of dermal filler
used. Dermal filler treatments are widely used in medical aesthetics to add volume, plump up and
reduce the appearance of line and folds.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the human body and is central to regulating
cell growth and renewal. Hyaluronic acid has impact on number of functions in the body, some of which
are to bind water, lubricate the movable parts of the body such as muscles and joints and to maintain
the elasticity of the skin. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the
hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long-lasting but not permanent.
How do Dermal Filler Treatments Work?
Due to the properties of the dermal fillers, once injected an instant volumizing effect can be seen (in
most dermal fillers), giving volume to the skin and longer term binding with water increasing hydration.
Unwanted folds and wrinkles can be “plumped up” to reduce their appearance, resulting in a smoother,
more youthful looking skin.
What are the Benefits of Dermal Filler Treatments?
Dermal filler injections provide an effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin
and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly in most of
the dermal fillers and can last for around 6 months to over a year depending on the kind of dermal filler
used. Dermal filler injections can give natural looking results that do not affect facial expression if they
were done by an experienced physician. As your face changes over time, dermal fillers allow you to
control you looks subtly as you age. Dermal fillers are used to increase volume and restore youthful
facial skin contours, thus smoothing away moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. These folds and lines
gradually appear in many people’s faces over time.
