What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging. This thinning is common in the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Dermal fillers are one of the most widely used treatments when it comes to restoring smoothness and facial volume. When injected, they fill in space and absorb water to create a smoother, fuller appearance in the face or to enhance the contours of the face.
Skin aging usually begins in your 20s when the structure of your skin starts to slowly lose essential collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that give your skin firmness and suppleness, so when levels start to drop, skin loses the ability to maintain elasticity and retain moisture. Dermal fillers help to replace lost proteins in the skin by filling or bulking up underlying tissues. Dermal fillers have absolutely no paralyzing effect at all.
