Dermal Fillers are designed to reduce common signs of aging we all start to notice as we get older. Lines, creases and wrinkles can start to form at various ages in different places for a variety of reasons. Sometimes repetitive facial muscle movements are causing the lines, sometimes loss of skin elasticity may be causing skin sagging, and sometime a loss of valuable fats and volume may lead to creases and wrinkles. In the latter case, Dermal Fillers may be the best way to replenish the volume lost and smooth out areas that have begun to wrinkle or appear sunken in.
Dermal Fillers are administered by injection and there are a few different types of Dermal Fillers, sometimes called facial fillers or injectable fillers. Each different type of dermal filler has its own strength and an area of the face it works best in. Sometimes a patient may opt to combine dermal fillers with botox or other facial rejuvenation procedures for a more comprehensive result.
