Dermal fillers ultimately restore loss of volume but results achieved can vary depending on the main active ingredient in the specific type of filler selected. A dermal filler is based on the natural composition of human skin, therefore with age, the upper layer of the skin, the epidermis, gradually becomes thinner, offering less protection to the lower layer, the dermis. Also, the ageing process reduces the production of collagen, the main component of the dermis, which gives the skin its strength, elasticity and firmness. This results in the appearance of wrinkles, folds and other age-related skin depressions. Dermal fillers integrate natural collagen, in different ways and varying specificities in relation to different areas of the body.
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Hyalronic Acid and Sculptra are very popular, quick injectable treatments that can soften facial wrinkles, lines and fill out hollows to recreate the smooth contours of younger skin. Fillers are popular with those seeking a swift, non-surgical solution for ageing skin that has lost volume as the collagen that previously helped to shape and support it has disappeared.Go to Treatment
