Dermal filler

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic treatment used to address signs of aging and improve the appearance of the skin. They are commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to the face, and enhance facial contours. This article will explore the benefits and considerations of dermal fillers, as well as the different types available and the procedure itself.

Dermal fillers are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, plump skin and improve definition by replacing lost volume due to aging or other skin changes.

Due to the natural reduction of collagen, elastin, and fat, our skin loses its volume as we age. These elements are what gives the skin and face its structure and contribute to a youthful appearance.

Scars and other impressions in the skin also become more noticeable as the skin gets weaker, and changes in the face can cause an asymmetrical appearance. All these symptoms can dent our self esteem and make us feel less confident.

But they can all be treated with dermal fillers, an injectable treatment which includes high levels of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, but our levels of HA diminish as we age, which is one of the causes of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Dermal fillers instantly restore skin volume and have a hydrating effect over time.
