What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that are injected into the skin at different depths to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve facial volume and augment facial features such as the nose and/or chin. With little to no downtime, this non-invasive procedure is relatively discomfort free and highly popular amongst all genders and ages.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal filler is a smooth injectable gel containing hyaluronic acid designed to replace the hyaluronic acid that is gradually lost during the process of ageing. fillers work almost instantly by boosting your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. This leads to added volume, reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles, and revitalised skin that offers a natural softer look. Additionally, dermal fillers also have a biological effect on your own hyaluronic acid by encouraging it to increase collagen and elastin production which improves skin integrity and quality.
