Most visible signs of aging can be due to loss of volume. With age, facial tissues thin out, lines surface around the nose and mouth and cheeks form a slight hollow. Dermal fillers can help resolve and restore lost volume to smooth wrinkles, achieve fuller lips and restore a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid, the safest material to be used for fillers, are gel-like substances that are injected underneath the skin to plump up the areas of volume loss. Filler help smooth lines, soften creases and even enhance facial contours. Annually, more than 1 million men and women opt for this popular facial rejuvenation treatment since it’s a cost-effective and minimally invasive way to look younger without any downtime.
The effects of dermal fillers can last anywhere between six to twelve months. It depends on the product being used and where on the body the product is being injected.
Skin rash, itching, redness, bruising, bleeding, or swelling asymmetry, lumps, or overcorrection of wrinkles, or infection are some of the minor side effects associated with dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers can be used in lips, chin, cheeks, jawline, and under the eyes to replace volume loss and restore the structural support, improving the shape and contour, and giving the patient a more youthful appearance.
Dermal filler treatments are generally not painful. Although, treatments around the lip and nose area are typically the most uncomfortable but this can be tolerated well though topically applied anaesthetic numbing cream.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are very safe and have been used for over a decade.
The dermal fillers cost varies and depends on the area being treated and the type of filler selected.
