What are Dermal Fillers?
Injectable fillers are a collagen material made of either synthetic or natural substances. Filler is injected into the skin to help fill facial folds, wrinkles and they also help restore a smoother, more youthful appearance and are often most popularly used to add volume to the lips.
How do Dermal Fillers work?
Dermal fillers are injected directly into skin with the purpose of plumping and smoothing out the area where there may be unwanted wrinkles, folds or imperfections. Depending on the type of filler used, the effects can last anywhere from 6-18 months, this will depend greatly on each individual and their skin and lifestyle factors.
Not to be confused with Botox, although the procedure does involve the administration of injections, Botox is most often injected around the eyes, forehead, neck or mouth to stop muscle movement that results in wrinkles, whereas fillers are used to plump and smooth.
