What Are Facial Fillers

Woman getting lip procedureCosmetic dermal fillers are injectables gels made of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance naturally found in the body that attracts and binds water molecules to add volume. In contrast to neuromodulators, facial dermal fillers create volume and fullness to achieve natural, youthful appearance.

As we age, our skin’s appearance changes. This is the result of many factors, like genetics, repeated facial expressions and sun exposure. It is also caused by the gradual loss of Hyaluronic Acid, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin and creating facial volume; as well as collagen, which provides elasticity.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?

HA is a natural sugar in the body that attracts water, restoring volume to the face. Over the time it is broken down by the body. As we age, we make less HA and our skin becomes dull and dry, and its quality (like elasticity) diminishes.

The good news is that replacing Hyaluronic Acid can help reduce the visible signs of aging*

How Facial Dermal Fillers Can Help?

Cosmetic fillers can help revitalize, rejuvenate and enhance your natural facial features:

  • Restore volume lost to aging for a youthful appearance
  • Enhance shape and definition for a balanced appearance or to improve your natural contours
  • Smooth away and soften lines, wrinkles and folds for a more youthful look
  • Add fullness and definition to your lips

How Long Do They Last?

One of the great advantages of dermal fillers is that aesthetic results are immediate, long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as type of treatment, treated area, individual’s type of skin, skin condition, strength of metabolism, lifestyle and age.

There is a wide range of dermal fillers available nowadays that can be tailored to individual skin needs.
