Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid and are non-permanent. They are used to enhance lips and cheeks and address issues caused by the ageing process.

History Of Dermal Fillers

Modern society has more and more individuals looking to aestheticians to help them achieve a more youthful appearance. The skins natural ageing process shows itself as changes in contour, the formation of wrinkles and the depletion of subcutaneous fat plus the loss of dermal collagen. Today there is a multitude of minimally invasive procedures aimed at rejuvenation.

Dermal Filling is not a new treatment. In the 1890s doctors had the technology to take fat from a patients arm and inject it into their faces. By the early 1900s, paraffin was being used by doctors as a skin filler although this was not without risks and side effects. Then in the 1940s, the use of highly refined silicone emerged as a dermal implant.

The past 25 years have seen an explosion in technological advances contributing to a cascade of new dermal filling material. The most recent of these being in the form of hyaluronic acid. The popularity of Dermal Fillers is on a huge growth curve that is led by the United States.
