Dermal Fillers

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment used to fill deep lines associated with aging and skin laxity. They are frequently made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a substance found naturally in human skin. HA molecules naturally attract water, so when processed into a gel consistency (as it is for injectables) it can be placed into different layers of tissue to attract water, hydrating skin and creating volume where we want it.

Why do people use dermal fillers?

Faces tend to lose volume with age as structures beneath the skin change shape and drift downwards. Sun damage, age and weight loss can also lead to a deflated, sagging appearance. Hormone changes cause skin to become thinner and less resilient as collagen and elastin are depleted. Thinner skin further reveals the change in shape beneath the skin and ultimately contributes to what we perceive as a sign of aging.

While HA fillers can restore volume and hydration, they can’t directly improve the quality of skin—but don’t worry, there are other products and treatments that can! Explore them here.
