WHAT IS DERMAL FILLER?
Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of temporary dermal filler. Injectable HA is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhance volume in areas of the face. Dermal fillers can create structure, framework, and add volume to the cheeks, jawline and chin. Softer dermal fillers can add volume to the lips or smooth hollow areas like the under eye area or nasolabial folds.

Most dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring complex sugar in your body that helps provide volume, structure, elasticity and moisture to your skin. HA is lost with age. Fillers are meant to replace volume to facial structures that have lost volume secondary to age and/or lifestyle. Adding volume to facial structures gives a more youthful-look to the face. Dermal fillers can be used in the tear troughs, nose, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline. Dermal fillers can also be used in the hands for hand restoration.
How does it work? HA filler is a smooth injectable gel. It is placed below the skin and often deep above the bone to fill space of volume loss. Doing this improves hollowing, folds and loose skin. Your body makes HA and is able to sustain it as well as break it down. HA filler is not permanent. Once the HA filler is placed it then fills with water from your body leaving a volume restored and natural look. Receiving HA filler also improves the moisture to your skin as HA holds 1,000 times its weight in water. Even better, the addition of new HA in your body encourages your body to increase collagen and elastin production which also improves overall skin integrity and quality.
