What are dermal fillers?
Naturally derived dermal fillers, which come in the form of hyaluronic acid, are injected into the facial skin to pump up the area and add volume. Dermal fillers are very effective against wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines or marionette lines. Plumping of the facial skin diminishes the depressions, folds and wrinkles to give you a fresh and youthful appearance. Dermal fillers should not be confused with Botox® even though both of these treatments involve injections.
The Hyaluronic acid, which is the prime content of the dermal fillers, occurs naturally in our body and immensely helps in the hydration and addition of volume to the skin. It helps to fill up the gaps between the elastin fibres and collagen in the skin to give your face a younger appearance, without affecting your facial expressions. The naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective skin rejuvenation products of our time.
What areas can dermal fillers treat?
Areas which can be treated with dermal fillers include:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Enhancement of shallow contours
- Reconstruction of contour deformities in face

What is the filler treatment procedure?
During the procedure, dermal fillers will be injected into the skin with a fine needle. The hyaluronic acid will add natural volume to your face, even out the fine lines, give you voluminous lips, and enhance your facial structure. An anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment area to prevent any kind of pain or discomfort during the procedure. The entire procedure will take about 20-30 minutes after which you will be able to resume your regular activities. The best part about this treatment is that you get to see visible results within one hour, and more than often these results are known to improve with time.
Are there any side effects with filler treatment?
Dermal fillers don’t come with any permanent side effects, which is the reason why so many women from all around the globe are opting for this minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Some of the immediate side effects, which can bother you after the injection, could include redness, swelling, itching or bruising. These side effects are temporary and gets better within a week’s time.
