Dermal fillers are a popular non-invasive treatment for men and women nowadays to look young and good instantly. There are many different types of dermal fillers available, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. One of the most popular choices for dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. This type of filler is often used to add volume to the lips, nose, forehead, temples, nasolabial folds, or cheeks, and can also be used to improve hydration and reduce the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is a safe and effective option for many people, but not everyone is suitable for it. Another popular type of dermal filler is collagen and elastin stimulator filler, causing your body’s own production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin contribute to the skin’s strength and elasticity. Due to aging and exposure to environmental factors such as sun damage, it is harder for our body to produce collagen and elastin. Get a consultation from an experienced Aesthetic Physician before you get dermal fillers as he will examine your face and ask about your goals and what areas you would like to enhance. Below are the dermal fillers with FDA approval for safety, effectiveness, and quality:
