The ultimate guide to dermal fillers


Fillers are extremely popular and nowadays they are more readily available. Sometimes having more options to choose from makes the decision even harder. This blog will tell you all you need to know about dermal fillers and some of the reasons why you might want them.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections used in the lips and face to fill lines and wrinkles, while adding volume to areas such as the lips and cheeks. Fillers are not permanent and they generally last between 6 and 18 months. The length of time that they last depends on the brand of the injection that has been used and personal factors.

At the age of 25, our bodies stop producing collagen, which is what keeps our skin elastic and youthful. This is why as we get older, we start to develop wrinkles and sunken cheeks. Many people are now turning to dermal fillers to give their skin a boost and add volume to various areas of the face. 

Dermal fillers can be injected into the face, lips and the hands. The injections used often contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance. 


Many people get dermal fillers in their face to achieve a younger complexion by reducing deep lines and wrinkles. 


Dermal fillers in the hands are used to reduce signs of aging such as our veins becoming more prominent. Due to the skin on our hands becoming thinner with age, fillers work to enhance the volume in our hands, restoring a youthful look.


Lip fillers are generally used by individuals that have naturally thinner lips, dermal fillers are able to give the lips more volume.
