Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers, also known as injectable fillers, are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can restore volume to the face, alter contours and soften scars and wrinkles, giving the face a more youthful appearance.

Fillers remain one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because of the immediate results, very few risks, and very little downtime.

As we age, our facial appearance changes due to a loss of facial fat and other factors. A loss of facial fat can cause thin lips, shallow contours, wrinkles, creases, and textured scars. Without this extra fat, the facial muscles become more prevalent in some areas, while other areas lack volume.

Dermal Fillers FAQ’s

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive option to restore fullness, smoothness and a natural youthful appearance to the face, with very little downtime in comparison to face-lift surgery. Results are immediate. Sometimes, it is called a liquid facelift. The effects last between 18-24 months.

Different dermal fillers have different formulations, duration of benefit, and different viscosity. Therefore, some types work better for different parts of the face and for different purposes. The main ingredient, however, is a modified form of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in our skin and body. It naturally and safely biodegrades over time, and injections can be repeated.
