The Uses for Dermal Fillers

Posted .

Dermal fillers can actually have a wide range of applications in many common cosmetic procedures. Dermal fillers have been approved by the FDA to help plump and add volume to the face as well as other parts of the body. Filling these areas can help to remove wrinkles, smooth skin texture or reduce the presence of deep lines. One of the most common types of dermal filler is Hyaluronic Acid.

Dermal fillers can often be used to mitigate issues with skin aging and hand aging. They can also help to fill wrinkles and lines on the face, cheek and chin. Some patients also like the use of dermal fillers for lip augmentation, eye filler for sallow skin under the eyes and they can even be used in some non-surgical nose job procedures.

The dermal filler injection only takes a few minutes and is almost always performed on an outpatient basis. How long the dermal filler lasts will vary depending on a number of factors, including the location, the amount of filler required as well as lifestyle and health choices you make.
