Skin is the largest organ in the human body and can be affected by many factors, such as genetics, lifestyle, environmental conditions and age. As we enter our 40s, the skin begins to lose volume, leading to wrinkles and lines.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical way to improve the appearance of aging skin, lines and wrinkles. They are minimally invasive treatments that involve injecting hyaluronic acid gel or other fillers into deep layers of skin (dermis) under your facial tissue.
The filler can help restore volume to areas where it has been lost due to age-related changes or illnesses such as acne scarring or rosacea.
What is Dermal Filler?
Dermal fillers, also known as injectables, are medical devices used to enhance facial tissue’s structure and volume. They can help reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and lines and restore fullness to lips and cheeks.
Dermal fillers come in various formulations with varying active ingredients, so not all dermal fillers are created equally. Your dermatologist will work with you on choosing which is best for your unique needs—and together, you can decide if dermal fillers are suitable for you.

Dermal Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and can be injected into wrinkles and folds in your face or other areas where you have lost volume. Dermal fillers can also be used for lip augmentation, breast enhancement and more.
Dermal fillers are not permanent; they will gradually dissolve over time.
Various dermal fillers are available, and each offers different benefits.
The active ingredient in dermal fillers is the substance that causes the dermal filler to take effect. The active ingredients may be synthetic or natural substances, depending on what you’re looking for in your filler.
For example, hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient found in your body’s connective tissue and has been used for years as an injectable filler by doctors worldwide.
What is the active ingredient in dermal filler?
Although there are many types of dermal fillers, the active ingredient is usually one of the following:
- Collagen: This substance is derived from bovine or porcine sources and injected into the skin to help restore volume. It’s been used for decades as a natural way to treat wrinkles and fine lines.
- Hyaluronic acid: A naturally occurring sugar in our bodies, hyaluronic acid can be found in some fillers that claim to help with anti-aging by promoting collagen production and plumping up fine lines around the eye area (crow’s feet).
- Polylactic acid (PLLA): This synthetic version of hyaluronic acid has also been shown to improve skin elasticity while reducing fine lines around the mouth area (nasolabial folds).
- Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA): One of several acrylic derivatives used as an alternative option for patients who aren’t candidates for other types of dermal filler injections due to allergies or other issues such as sun sensitivity; PMMA injections have also been shown effective at treating acne scars
How is dermal filler administered?
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin. The procedure is done by a doctor or nurse and lasts about 15 minutes. Most patients feel little to no pain, though some may experience mild discomfort at the injection site.
After the treatment, you can return to your routine immediately; however, we recommend avoiding exercise or strenuous activity for 24 hours so your body can absorb the filler properly.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Less invasive compared to surgery
Dermal fillers are an excellent option for people who want to improve their appearance but are not ready for surgery. Dermal fillers can be injected into the skin to plump up wrinkles and folds, creating a smoother look. They’re also less invasive than surgery and produce results that last longer than creams or lotions you apply topically.
No downtime after treatment
The results of dermal fillers are immediate, so there’s no need for any recovery time. This means you can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment and won’t have to cancel work or appointments for several days. There is no downtime at all.
As long as you follow your practitioner’s post-treatment instructions, there should be little pain associated with dermal filler injections.
Shorter recovery time than surgery
- No surgery required
- Quicker recovery time than surgery
- No downtime and minimal discomfort
Safe and non-surgical.
Dermal fillers are a safe and non-surgical way to improve the appearance of your skin. They’re also an excellent alternative if you don’t want to go under the knife for cosmetic procedures like liposuction or facelifts.
Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in our bodies and helps give us a healthy glow by keeping our skin hydrated. Dermal fillers are made from these same ingredients; they’re just injected into targeted areas using a needle so that they can add volume to sagging areas such as cheeks or lips (or even reduce wrinkles).

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to improve the appearance of aging skin, lines and wrinkles. They can be used on all areas of the face, including:
- The cheeks (to lift them)
- The skin around the mouth (to plump it up)
- Between eyebrows (to smooth them out)
People must understand the benefits of dermal fillers so they can make an informed decision on whether or not they should have this procedure done. Although there is some discomfort during treatment, most people find it to be tolerable and well worth it in the end.
