How do fillers work?

In general, dermal fillers work to plump up the skin. They do this by replenishing the levels of hyaluronic acid in the dermis layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance which is found in the dermis. Our collagen stocks diminish as we age, and this is why wrinkles, folds and creases begin to emerge. By plumping the skin and supplying collagen, dermal fillers can effectively reduce the visibility of wrinkles.

Who are fillers for?

While dermal fillers are most commonly used to plump up and reshape women’s lips, they have many uses in cosmetic surgery. Men and women frequently turn to dermal fillers to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and other signs of aging, and even younger patients may seek out out the treatment for stress lines and acne scars.
