WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are a substance that is injected into the dermis of the skin. They are used to fill in lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume in different areas of the face. After the treatment, the skin is instantly smoother, younger-looking and fresher.
The most popular dermal filler is the hyaluronic acid one. Hyaluronic acid is already present in the skin and is in charge of plumping and hydrating the skin.
Facial fillers are more than suitable for treating different areas of the face because they can be of different structures and textures. For instance, when treating lips, facial fillers are softer, easily moved when smiling and add moisture to the lips. But, when treating cheeks, facial fillers are firmer and add a voluminous definition to the cheekbones. In any case, facial fillers when injected properly, smooth the lines, soften the creases and enhance facial contours. Most importantly – they look natural.
