Dermal fillers are injectable, gel-like solutions that produce instant volume enhancement in areas that have been affected by aging. Aging causes natural collagen production within the body to decline, leading to increased skin laxity, facial volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles, and an overall tired, sunken appearance.
Dermal filler injections directly into areas of the face that show signs of aging fill out hollow spots and smooth overlying wrinkles. Dermal fillers may contain various naturally occurring or synthetic ingredients to improve the skin condition, increase hydration, boost natural collagen production, and increase skin elasticity over time. Dermal fillers are formulated with varying viscosities to mimic natural and youthful facial tissues in specific areas of the face. For example, the ideal filler for volume enhancement in the cheeks is a thicker solution than one designed for more delicate areas such as the eyes or lips.
