How Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers (facial fillers) are gel-like substances that are used to rejuvenate and sculpt the features, providing natural plumpness where volume has been lost or is lacking.

Facial Fillers are used to:

  • Lift the cheekbones
  • Define the jawline
  • Smooth wrinkles on the face, neck, hands, & chest
  • Plump the lips
  • Sculpt the nose
  • Fill hollows under the eyes, cheeks, & other areas

The majority of dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally-occurring substance in the human body that absorbs moisture and keeps the skin plump, supple, and hydrated.

Other facial fillers are made with compounds found naturally in the human body that achieve similar effects to HA-based fillers. 

Dermal fillers are safe and dramatically effective, and because they are injectables, they only require about 20-30 minutes to achieve beautiful results–and there’s no downtime.

What are the Different Types of Dermal Fillers?

There are many different types of dermal fillers:

Each of these specializes in treating a specific part of the face. Not only that, but they also behave differently. This means different dermal fillers will produce different results when applied to the same area of the face. Our providers understand how each filler interacts with the body, allowing them to use them in the proper areas, like lip fillers in San Antonio. During your initial consultation for dermal fillers, we will go over these different types and ensure you understand exactly what will be done.
