Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to restore volume and fullness to various areas of the face, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. They are primarily used to treat signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial volume.
The most common type of dermal fillers are made of a gel-like substance composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found in the skin that helps retain moisture and adds volume. Synthetic versions of HA are used in dermal fillers because they are biocompatible and offer long-lasting results.
The procedure of administering dermal fillers involves injecting the gel into specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth), and marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin). The injections are performed by a qualified healthcare professional, typically a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon, who has expertise in facial aesthetics.
Dermal fillers work by physically filling in the targeted areas, which helps smooth out wrinkles, plump up thin lips, and restore volume to hollow or sunken areas. The procedure is minimally invasive and usually requires little to no downtime. Some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site may occur but typically subsides quickly.
The effects of dermal fillers are temporary and can last anywhere from several months to over a year, depending on the specific product used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes and absorbs the filler, and additional treatments are needed to maintain the desired results.
