What are dermal fillers?
Temporary dermal fillers are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural biodegradable component of our skin that can be synthesized. HA contributes to hydration of connective tissue, wound repair and regeneration, and collagen production. Dermal fillers have a gel consistency and can restore and volumise skin and facial contours to form a more youthful appearance.
