Dermal fillers are typically used to add volume and plump the skin. The most commonly used Dermal Filler is made from hyaluronic acid, predominately because there is a material available that can reduce the effects of the dermal filler. The material is injected using both needle and cannula. The fillers are a gel like substances of varying consistencies; a firmer consistency is required in the cheek area whilst a more elastic material is used in the lips.
Lip fillers are tailored to redefine the margins of the lip and to enhance their shape.
