What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft injectable gels, containing hyaluronic acid, which add volume to the skin, filling the depressed area to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
For many patients, the desire to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles (which can often have a significant ageing effect) is the main motivation for undergoing dermal filler treatment. They are typically used in the lower part of the face, albeit in a wide range of different areas, from the fine lines around the mouth, to the deeper nasolabial lines – the lines between the nose and the corners of the mouth. They can also be used to add volume to the lips, to give a more rounded, fuller appearance, or to address any unevenness or lack of symmetry. Other fillers can be used to re-contour the face, for example by adding volume to the cheeks for a younger, fresher, more vibrant look.
