What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are made of various kinds of natural, man-made or synthetic materials that have been developed over the years for injection into the skin, such as hyaluronic acid.
They help to restore our skin and facial contours to their former youthful appearance, as the material is injected into areas where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer, both in terms of filling out wrinkles or revolumising the face as well as addressing ageing hands. The treatment has many applications so it’s important to learn about what they can treat.
Fillers come in different thicknesses, and in general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermal layer of the skin to help plump out medium to deep lines and wrinkles, such as naso-labial folds (nose to mouth lines), fill scars, contour or revolumise the cheeks and chin or to augment or reshape lips.
