Dermal fillers are injections typically made out of a substance like hyaluronic acid or collagen to help fill in the skin to add more volume or to get rid of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

FAQ: What Are Dermal Fillers Used for? 

The unique thing about dermal fillers is that they can be used almost all across the face. Typically, dermal fillers are used from the eyes down to help with the following cosmetic concerns.

FAQ: How Long Do they Last? 

Depending on the type of dermal filler that you use, they may last six months or they may last over a year. Some fillers are harder to metabolize by the body which means that they will last longer. If you want your fillers to last a long time, then talk to your dermatologist about which options take longer to metabolize. 

If you've wanted to make some tweaks to your face without committing to a surgery, then dermal fillers may be the ultimate way to go. To learn more about dermal fillers, reach out to a dermatologist near you.
