Many visible signs of aging are due to volume loss. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into the skin and used to replace volume, plump the lips, smooth wrinkled skin and raised depressed scars. Dermal fillers are gradually broken down by the body and their effects can be expected to last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the area treated and the filler used. 

Dermal fillers can be used to treat:

  • Thin lips or age-related loss of lip volume

  • Loss of facial volume in the temples and cheeks

  • Lines around the nose and mouth

  • Hollows under the eyes

  • Vertical lip lines

  • Asymmetry of facial features

  • Loss of volume in the hands
