Dermal Fillers

With aging, our skin tends to lose subcutaneous volume/fat naturally. Since facial muscles work closely with the skin surface, the lines become more apparent. Dermal fillers help in restoring the lost volume and offer fullness to these areas. 

What are Dermal Fillers?

It is quite evident by the name itself that Dermal Fillers are meant to fill up the hollows and provide volume. Hence, by plumping up certain areas it provides the right contours and helps highlight the best features of the face. These are also known as soft tissue fillers and most commonly used dermal fillers consist of Hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our bodies and is responsible to provide hydration and suppleness to the skin. However, as we age the body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases leading to volume loss.  Therefore, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most preferred type of dermal fillers as these are proven to be safe and effective for various concerns.

The Procedure

Dermal filler is a non-surgical treatment with no downtime at all. A soft tissue filler is injected into the skin with the help of a very fine needle. Numbing cream or topical anesthesia is applied to the area of the treatment. Nowadays, fillers are formulated with a local anesthetic to provide painless injection. Depending on the treatment area, it will take 30 to 60 minutes at the max for the entire procedure. The result lasts for 6 to 18 months or more. The procedure has to be administered carefully under the supervision of an expert.
