What are Dermal Fillers?
Static wrinkles are those that are visible when the face is relaxed and at rest. As people age, the dermal layer of the skin becomes thinner. The loss of elasticity and fullness is manifested in static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles can also eventually become permanent and no longer disappear when the face is relaxed. Dermal fillers can help eliminate these types of wrinkles by adding volume to the dermal layer. This plumps up the tissue, returns it to a state similar to that of youth and pushes out the creases. Types of fillers range from hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane to collagen fillers like Cosmoplast. Injections of fat are also used as fillers. The duration of results and possible side effects vary with the type of filler used.
