Dermal fillers are an injectable substance used to smooth out facial wrinkles or indentations in facial skin. These fillers are semi-permanent; they will tend to last for about six month, with the thicker types of filler used for deeper facial crevices lasting the longest.
There are various types of dermal filler, but most are based on hyaluronic acid (HA). This a complex compound that is found in all living cells, including human skin. It not only fills in gaps beneath the skin, smoothing the facial appearance, it also helps retain moisture and keep skin hydrated. Over time the biodegradable HA is reabsorbed into the body, and the face returns to its pre-treatment state.
Side effects of dermal fillers are quite mild and short term. Any redness, bruising, itching or swelling will subside within a few days. Some allergies can be aggravated by dermal filler; a different type of filler may avoid this problem. As a precaution pregnant and nursing women should avoid dermal fillers.
