What Exactly Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal filler is a collagen material which is either natural, man- made or synthetic injected into the dermis to restore lost volume and restructure the face. These injectable substances can erase wrinkles, enhance lips, treat appearance of facial lines, correct recessed scars and augment the skin tissues. There are two main types of dermal fillers that are available in the market today. They are the permanent and the non-permanent ones.

When Are Dermal Fillers Used?
Dermal fillers are generally used when people cross 35 years of age and when they start to experience the effects of premature aging. However people around the 20’s also use dermal fillers to correct minor deformities. Dermal fillers are used to correct nasolabial folds, marionette lines, loss of volume in the cheeks, smoker’s line around the mouth, receding chin, thin or unshapely lips and to fill in pitted acne scars.
Why Are Dermal Fillers Used?
Dermal fillers are used to artfully and aesthetically design the exact look a person desires. Your skin changes with age. The body begins to slow the production of collagen and elastin. Moreover prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays, personal habits like smoking and diet can also lead to appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Dermal fillers are an important tool in the management of ageing skin. Though ageing is a general phenomenon it does not occur evenly and uniformly on all areas of the face. This is because the subcutaneous fat on the face is not a single layer but it is compartmentalized. Each and every compartment ages at a different pace. Hence these dermal fillers can be implemented to correct the individual compartments of the face separately.
