A Comprehensive Guide To Dermal Fillers: Procedure, Benefits And Cost

Dermal Fillers Comprehensive Guide

Don’t we just love our skin when it’s soft, glowy and plump? Collagen works at its best in our tender years. As we age, we lose it gradually, which results in loss of elasticity and firmness. Our cheeks start sinking, the area under the eyes starts digging inside and wrinkles start forming. It’s true that a healthy diet keeps your skin healthy but at times, it’s just not enough. Cosmetology helps in this case. Dermal fillers are one the most common cosmetic treatments that people go for.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers, are a type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure that smooth fine lines, plump lips, reduce wrinkles and restore volume in the face. These injectable fillers are injected just under the skin. This age-defying treatment brings enormous changes to one’s looks, enhances facial features, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, smooths nasolabial folds and whatnot!

This facial sculpting treatment is quick and lasts long. We all know the importance of collagen for healthy and younger-looking skin. Aging reduces the amount of this substance which results in thinner and sagging skin. The hyaluronic acid fillers treat this problem, moisturize the skin and help in volume restoration.

Benefits of dermal fillers
