Dermal fillers are small injections that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in various parts of your face such as your cheeks, mouth, jawline and around the eye.

As we get older, our bodies stop producing elastin and collagen, both of which are proteins that allow many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. This means it plays a crucial role in your youthful look. It is said that the age at which these levels of proteins start to decline is 25. The declining levels of elastin and collagen can lead to deep set lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers combat this by increasing volume and plumping areas. This results in a rejuvenated look.

Depending on how your body reacts with the filler, it will usually last between 6 to 18 months. This means it will require repeat treatment in order to maintain the look.

Dermal fillers can also be used to prevent ageing. Getting fillers at an earlier age with small signs of ageing are said to prevent severe deep-set lines and wrinkles as you get older.
