About Our Dermal Filler
Dermal filler is one of the main non-invasive cosmetic injectables procedures that we offer at Dermaq Aesthetics. Dermal filler is a thick gel substance that, when injected under the skin, can achieve a range of aesthetic outcomes.
The precise outcome depends on the thickness of the filler, technique used to inject, and area of the injection. The dermal fillers used at Dermaq Aesthetics are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin and connective tissue. It is responsible for retaining water to keep your skin plump and well hydrated. It also plays an important role in collagen production and wound healing.
Hyaluronic acid used in dermal filler is synthetically made. The gel like substance is hydrophilic, which means that it attracts and holds onto water molecules to plump and hydrate tissues. By attracting large amounts of water, the skin stays hydrated, plump and youthful looking. Hyaluronic acid can actually hold up to 1000 times its weight in water!
