There are a range of dermal fillers on the market, which are categorized by the substances used to formulate them. Fillers are generally very safe and effective, and are widely used for facial rejuvenation, to reshape areas and restore youthful contours to the face.
How dermal fillers work
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin, and work by filling out the area around the injection site. A treatment session typically consists of several tiny injections. As the fillers penetrate they stimulate collagen, and boost the skin’s natural support structure. Treatment can be done in as little as 20 minutes. Fillers are commonly used to fill out wrinkles and replenish facial volume.
What to expect
Some dermal fillers produce instant results, while others take several days before the effects can be seen. As more collagen remodels, the skin becomes stronger and more elastic.
