Dermal fillers work by imitating the hyaluronic acid that gives younger skin its fullness and buoyancy. These also boost the supply of this sugar molecule in the skin. When injected into facial skin, dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of skin laxity, sagging and wrinkles while also adding more youthful volume to the face. Dermal fillers are a safe and soft injectable gel and dissolve in the body over time.
Dermal fillers are used primarily to address issues such as skin laxity in which facial skin begins to lose its firmness and sagging is seen in the cheeks or at the jawline. Fillers can also be used to address fine lines and wrinkles, including the marionette lines that can appear at the nasolabial fold. Dermal fillers can also help with sunspots and sun damage.
We recommend consulting a specialist to help determine if dermal fillers are the best treatment option for you.
