Dermal fillers are among the most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatment for the face. These injectable solutions are designed to restore soft tissue volume to the face almost instantly, resulting in a natural reduction of wrinkles, lines and contour anomalies in the face. A wide range of facial fillers are available today, many of which have been approved by the FDA for specific aesthetic purposes.
Different categories of these injectable fillers will vary on the basis of their ingredients, palpability, effectiveness, longevity, ease of delivery, and other factors. The expertise of the doctor who is administering dermal filler treatment will play a key role in determining the final outcome. The treatment provider must have an intimate understanding of aesthetic facial balance and proportion, knowledge of various wrinkle filler products, and injection skills.

Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance occurring in the human skin that holds the skin tight. In addition to providing structural support and volume and fullness to the skin because of its hydrophilic properties, hyaluronic acid also facilitates transportation of nutrients for the cells. As hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, the dermal fillers based on this ingredient are highly biocompatible and do not require any prior allergy tests before the treatment can be administered.
The versatility of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers is high with respect to the choice of treatment areas and the depth of placement. Some of these fillers are FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds, but they are also commonly used to reduce other facial wrinkles and lines.
Hyaluronic acid based filler treatments are safe and pose minimal risk of complications. Results are visible almost immediately and may last for anywhere between six and 12 months, depending on the type of filler and the strength of treatment used. The treatment involves no downtime, and the procedure is relatively painless with the application of a local anesthetic.
