Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are soft tissue injectable medical grade materials that are injected into the skin at different depths to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds, cheeks and lips and for increasing the volume of the back of the hand. These substances are used in soft tissue augmentation to enhance or replace volume that is lost in any part of the skin or subcutaneous fat.

Why are dermal fillers done?

As a person ages, the body stops producing collagen and elastin that causes the skin to become lax, appears wrinkled, and sags. Apart from this, there is a lot of subcutaneous fat that is lost from under the skin. This volume loss gives a hollow appearance to the face. Areas like the cheeks, midface, infraorbital area, lips prominently loose volume and contributes to a very aged appearance.

Dermal fillers revitalize and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. Today, the majority of the dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid. Once injected at different depths depending on the location, it plumps the skin. Over a period of time, it also absorbs fluids and provides a much smoother skin texture.

How is a Dermal Filler treatment done?

The vast majority of dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based. They are differentiated by their various characteristics like concentration, particulate size, crosslinking, viscosity, g-prime, etc, They are supplied in 1ml gels in syringes and are injected to the indicated area with the help of fine gauge needles or blunt cannulas. Different techniques are used for restoring different parts of the face.
