Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments and are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and revitalize the skin. Dermal fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body.
Dermal fillers are soft injectable gels consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long-lasting but not permanent. For injectable dermal filler treatment, it is always advisable to get in touch with a skin expert.

All hyaluronic acid soft-tissue fillers are temporary, lasting anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the filler and type of procedure. Some patients require maintenance treatments to achieve the best results. Expectations differ following treatment:
- Lip therapy: Dermal fillers can improve the shape, structure, and volume of the lips for up to six months. Following treatment, ice may be given to ease discomfort and swelling. Avoid applying firm pressure on the treatment area. Lipstick and other lip products should be avoided immediately following the procedure.
- Scars and wrinkled skin: Dermal fillers can also be used to treat scars and wrinkles on your skin. Following treatment, ice may be given to ease discomfort and swelling. Avoid applying firm pressure on the treatment area.
