Dermal fillers (AKA soft tissue fillers, injectable fillers,) help you to turn back the clock on aging with a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Getting treated with dermal fillers helps to restore the volume loss beneath the surface of your skin.
Dermal fillers can be used to plump the lips, add volume to cheeks, sculpt the jawline, smooth wrinkles and folds, smooth the appearance of pitted acne scars, and fill in the under-eye hollows known as tear troughs.
Dermal fillers have changed the way we think about aging skin. They’re a safe and effective alternative to a facelift, and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, from deep folds and creases, to loss of definition around the mouth and jaws. That said, dermal fillers will not provide the same level of facial rejuvenation as a cosmetic surgery like a facelift; the results are more subtle and more temporary.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most popular FDA-approved filler ingredient because it's so easy to dissolve in the event of a complication. Hyaluronic acid is a clear, thick, substance that your body naturally produces to keep your joints, eyes, and skin hydrated.
Hyaluronic acid can attract and retain up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, which is what makes it ideal for use as a cosmetic filler. Hyaluronic acid fillers are nearly identical to the chemical that's naturally produced in our bodies, so they're absorbed more naturally over time than other ingredients and come with little risk of an allergic reaction. By replenishing hyaluronic acid, skin will have more volume and the appearance of lines and wrinkles becomes diminished.
