What is Dermal Filler?
Dermal Filler is a natural complex sugar that gives volume to the skin. It is found in the second layer of skin called the dermis. As the skin ages, there is a gradual loss of this filler substance resulting in skin sag, wrinkles and a loss of volume. The filler helps to improve wrinkles and restore volume to areas affected by the ageing process. Filler adds volume to the skin by attracting water to the area where it is injected.
How long do Dermal Fillers last?
Dermal Fillers can last anywhere between 6 to 24 months depending on the placement on the face, and may vary from patient to patient. As a guide, more active areas such as lips will break down the product at a quicker rate, whereas less active areas, such as the cheeks, last longer.
