Hyaluronic dermal fillers have become the gold standard in the last ten years when it comes to filling facial wrinkles. There are several reasons for the large increase in the popularity of fillers and those are their compatibility and biodegradation inside the skin, the ease of application and slight pain at injection place.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance which has a large share in building the extracellular space of our skin, where it plays an important role in water balance as well as in healing precisely because it provides good hydration.
Dermal fillers, sometimes called soft tissue fillers, are substances designed to be injected beneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness.
Different types of dermal fillers are designed to treat varying signs of aging. Depending on the filler selected, they may:
- Plump up thinning lips.
- Enhance or fill in shallow areas on the face.
- Decrease or remove the shadow or wrinkle under the eyes caused by the lower eyelid.
- Fill in or soften the look of recessed scars.
- Fill in or soften static wrinkles, especially on the lower face.
- Static wrinkles include those around the mouth and along the cheeks. These wrinkles are usually a result of a loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin.
Each one of these is designed to treat different signs of aging or other cosmetic issues.
The time they take to work, as well as how long they last, also vary. Some fillers last 6 months, while others last up to 2 years or longer.
People should discuss their individual needs and expectations with their doctor to determine what filler would be the best choice for them.

Care for beautiful lips reaches far into the past. Women from Mesopotamia were probably the first women who invented lipstick 5,000 years ago and wore it. They made it from pigments of crushed semi-precious stones, while the Egyptians used the color from purple-red seaweed. Lips are one of the most sensitive areas of female faces. Beautiful, full and sensual lips are the dream of every woman, and embellish many beautiful and famous faces like Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer.
before and after
Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with the research, diagnosis and treatment of skin and its adnexa (scent glands, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, mammary glands, hair and nails) and visible mucous membranes. A dermatologist is, therefore, a physician specialist to whom you can refer if you have any changes in your skin, scalp, or nails.
Changes that may occur are:
- warts and other growths on the skin
- fungal infections
- dermatitis (contact, atopic, seborrheic)
- connective tissue disease
- lack of pigmentation
- different skin cancers
- other changes in the skin.
