Dermal fillers are part of a category of what is called “injectables”. They plump up fine lines, wrinkles, some scarring and augment the lips and cheeks by restoring volume and definition.
The most commonly used fillers are Hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar that is contained in almost every part of our body and because it is a naturally occurring substance within our body, it is safe, effective; therefore the allergy occurrence is minimal. As we age, the body produces less and less Hyaluronic Acid.
The other injectables such as Sculptra are colagen boosters but should not be defined as fillers.
Prior to using any injectable filler we urge you to do your research and look into the manufacturer.
