Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to restore volume and fullness to areas of the face that have lost their youthful appearance due to aging, sun damage, or other factors. The most common areas treated with dermal fillers include the cheeks, lips, under-eye area, and nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth).

Dermal fillers are made of various materials, including hyaluronic acid, collagen, and calcium hydroxylapatite. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular, as they are natural and highly effective at restoring volume to the skin. The injections are performed by a qualified healthcare professional and are typically done in an outpatient setting.

Dermal fillers can help to soften wrinkles and fine lines, restore lost volume to the face, and improve overall facial symmetry. They can also be used to enhance facial features such as the lips and cheeks. Results can last from several months to several years, depending on the type of filler used and the location of the injection.

Like any medical procedure, dermal fillers carry some risks, including bruising, swelling, infection, and allergic reactions. It is important to choose a qualified healthcare professional who is experienced in administering dermal fillers to minimize the risks and ensure the best possible results.
