Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid gels that are injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, add volume and firmness. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. These products are injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur giving the appearance of a smoother surface. The average time filler can last is 6 months to 2 years.
