For years, cosmetic scientists have been developing both natural and synthetic materials that can be injected into the skin in order to make the patient’s appearance more youthful. Dermal fillers can come in various different sizes and thickness, meaning that the thicker the product, the deeper into the skin it is injected, and therefore the greater the risk. Dermal fillers can either be permanent or non permanent, with different levels of effectiveness.
Dermal filler procedures proceed as follows:
The area of your face of which is being treated is cleansed thoroughly, before a numbing cream is applied to make sure the injections cause as minimal discomfort as possible.
Small quantities of dermal filler are injected into your skin using an ultrafine needle.
