Dermal filler treatment comprises the injection of certain substances either temporary or permanent in to the skin and below to correct wrinkles and folds of a static nature. It can also be used to contour the face, reshape the nose and augment lips. The treatment is generally carried out using a topical anaesthetic cream to reduce discomfort and takes no more than 20-30 minutes. The most commonly used filler substance is Hyaluronic acid which is what naturally binds water in the skin and gives it smooth contours. The filler is safe, natural and biodegradable. Results are seen either immediately or within a few weeks depending on the kind of filler used and the correction required. Generally the correction lasts 6 - 18 months based on filler characteristics and site of injection.
