Derma fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. These are effective for smoothing out irregular surfaces or volumizing the desire areas for a youthful and sleek appearance.
Common purposes of the filler are giving volume to deep under-eye circles and nasolabial folds (laugh lines), lifting cheekbones, volumizing the lips, and smoothing lip lines. Derma fillers are composed of several substances.
The most common substance is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance that occurs naturally in our skin, and it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and volumized. Normally it lasts from six to nine months before it is naturally absorbed by the body.
