A New Era of Beauty with Dermal Fillers
The Basics Of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injection that can be used to change the shape and volume in areas in the face or body. They work by adding volume to areas where there is less, such as in wrinkles or folds, or by softening areas where there is excess, such as in deep lines. Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid-based products, which are injected into the skin through a needle or smooth tipped cannulas and then gradually break down.
There are two main types of dermal fillers: temporary and semi-permanent. Temporary fillers last only six months or so before they need to be re-injected while semi-permanent fillers last up to three years. Temporary fillers are safer and usually hydrogel-based, which is what holds the materials that give volume. They can be injected into the skin, and then dissolved by body fluids and removed naturally by your body. Semi-permanent fillers utilize collagen for stability and are mixed with serum for longevity in your skin before injection.
