Dermal Fillers are cosmetic injectable treatments used to soften facial wrinkles, lines and fill out hollows to recreate the smooth contours of younger skin.
There are different types of Dermal Fillers, composed by a variety of substances, natural or synthetic. Some Dermal Fillers are made of collagen – the main structural protein of connective tissues in animals – others are synthetically produced in laboratory and derived from hyaluronic acid, a water holding molecule acting as a cushioning and hydrating agent in all mammals.
Cosmetically, Dermal Fillers are used mainly to assist the correction of skin conditions that may appear as a result of aging, including wrinkles, creases and folds.
A Dermal Filler procedure consists in injections in the Dermis layer of the skin for the purpose of increasing soft tissues.
Widely regarded as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions, Dermal Fillers are most popular among those who seek a swift, non-surgical solution for aged skin that has lost volume.
Dermal Fillers can also be used to treat scars and depressions in the skin, including acne scars or those acquired from surgery.
It is highly recommended that you consult with a qualified practitioner before receiving a Dermal Filler treatment.
