What are dermal fillers?

Dermal Fillers are for Deep Wrinkles of the Face and Lip Enhancement.

Dermal FillersDermal fillers are used to fill or replace the lost volume in static wrinkles, lines and folds. They do not affect facial muscle contraction. Generally, dermal fillers are used in the treatment of wrinkles, lines, and folds that appear at rest, rather than those that appear during facial expression. Wrinkles due to facial expression are best treated with anti-wrinkle injections. Facial volume loss is one of the key factors in the aging process, and dermal fillers can help to replenish this lost volume and rejuvenate the face.

Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance, define or enlarge lips, and to shape the face by injection into cheeks, chins, and noses.
