What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. They are biodegradable materials that soften and reduce wrinkles temporarily, when injected into the skin.
They can address a number of common concerns including smoothing of deep under-eye circles, lifting of cheekbones, volumization of the lips, smoothing of lip lines and nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth), and rejuvenation of the hands.
The present use of dermal fillers has travelled long way from the initial days with constant and continuous study and research. Fat was one of the first soft tissue fillers to be used and is still widely used today.

Fat from the lower abdomen or other areas is procured through liposuction and then can be injected into your cheek, temple, lips or forehead through small incisions. The procedure is more invasive and achieving the desired results may require more than one session of injections. Overfilling the site is mandatory to compensate for the body’s reabsorption of the fat.
