Dermal filler is one of the main non-invasive cosmetic injectables procedure 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. This depends on the thickness of the filler, technique used to inject, and area of the face. 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. HA can actually hold up to 1000 times its weight in water!
As we age the quality of our skin decreases due to the loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Along with thinning of facial bones and loss of subcutaneous fat pads, the skin appears to sag, and the loss of volume results in hollowing of areas
such as the temples. Luckily there are non-surgical ways of correcting these changes!
