What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic gels that are injected into the skin to volumise, lift and improve the appearance of lines. The vast majority of dermal fillers are completely biodegradable and temporary however there are some permanent fillers available as well. Although the idea of a more permanent filler may seem more appealing to a patient, they are generally associated with more complications and longer term problems and rarely used in practice. The vast majority of dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid.

 

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body, identical across species. It attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibres and providing a medium, or carrier, for chemical messages between the cells.

Dermal fillers are manufactured, usually through fermentation and cross linking with proteins to produce a clear, sterile gel for injection into the skin. Not all hyaluronic acids are the same and legitimate brands are not available forgeneral sale on the internet and should only be administered by trained clinicians. Each brand has a range of ’tissue tailored’ products indicated for different areas and depths of injection.

One size does not fit all.
