Dermal fillers are a product range aiming at substituting volume. This can be volume that is lost due to natural processes or volume where it would enhance features of the face like the popular lip enhancement. They can also smooth out deep wrinkles and support the effect of anti wrinkle injections. They can even improve or restore the shape of the face where volume has been lost like the cheek area.
Modern fillers have hyaluronic acid as their main ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body which plays an essential role in the hydration of the skin. The natural production of hyaluronic acid declines as we age and lines appear as skin becomes less hydrated. Therefore fillers are a natural way to replenish the skins hydration, giving your face volume and helping to smooth out lines.
Over the time the hyaluronic acid degrades again and the effect fades. It is important to choose the right filler for the right indication. There is no one best product. There is only the best product for the individual’s treatment requirements.
