Dermal Fillers Treatment

Dermal Fillers treatment is one of the popular anti ageing treatments today. As we age, the collagen in our skin reduces and our skin tends to sag and wrinkles start to appear. As the name ‘filler’ suggests, a dermal filler or a soft tissue filler is an injection given to fill an area in the skin. Dermal fillers volumnize facial wrinkles and depression giving our skin a smoother and fuller appearance.

Where can fillers be used on the face?

Filler treatments are mostly done for correcting various signs of facial ageing, including:

  • filling out the groove that runs from the nose to the mouth also known as nasolabial folds / laugh lines
  • plumping of thin lips
  • filling of the cheeks to give a fuller youthful appearance
  • correcting pitted acne scars and chicken pox scars
  • filling of depression under the eye

An ideal dermal filler should be non-allergenic, non-carcinogenic, non-teratogenic, inert, and should not degrade fast.

What are the advantages of dermal fillers treatment?

Dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers are non-surgical, minimum risk fillers. Filler treatment does not require hospitalization or post operative care. It can be done in a span of a few hours and the downtime is indeed short, say a few hours.

Unlike most other cosmetological procedures, in a dermal filler treatment results are immediate. So much so, they can be noticed soon after the injection.
