What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, we begin to notice the changes in our faces and in our skin. The development of wrinkles and lines, the formation of loose skin, and hollowness of areas of the face. These are all common to the aging process.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances used to fill in and ease away these unwanted signs of aging. Most dermal fillers are pure synthetic substances that replicate what occurs naturally in the body.
Part of the aging process is the decrease in the production of certain proteins. With less of the connective protein that holds water molecules, our skin loses volume and structure, making our face look gaunt around the cheek and lip areas. Wrinkles and sagging skin also form. With the help of dermal fillers, the skin tissues can be rejuvenated and revitalized.
