What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers also called hyaluronic acid, is naturally produced by the human body and is an essential component in skin hydration. Replenishing the skin with hyaluronic acid is effective in combating the natural aging process. Dermal Fillers fill lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas such as your lips, cheeks, temples, chin and jawline. This substance attracts and locks in moisture to skin, making it an effective anti-aging treatment.
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that binds easily with water to keep the skin, joints, eyes and other connective tissues moisturized and lubricated. It has a low molecular weight, which means it can easily penetrate the skin. It is best known as a moisturizer, and can help plump up skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Because it is naturally found within the body, hyaluronic acid side effects are uncommon and occur most often as a result of the application method.
It is formulated within skin care products, can be injected into the skin, or taken orally as a supplement.
Because Dermal Fillers are naturally found within the body, they are very safe for injecting. Fillers are not permanent. How long they last depend on things like the type of filler and where it's injected. They usually last between 6 and 18 months.
