What are dermal fillers?
How do dermal fillers work?
To understand how dermal fillers work, you must understand how aging occurs. As you grow older, your skin loses its collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid reserves. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin appear firm and smooth. Hyaluronic acid is a biodegradable component that holds 1000x its own weight in water, making your skin look soft, hydrated, and luscious. As such, the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid leads to hollow cheeks, a gaunt facial appearance, thin lips, and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers work by restoring your skin’s hyaluronic acid or collagen reserves. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm, inject hyaluronic acid molecules underneath the skin to fill in the fine lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume. Other dermal fillers, such as Sculptra, are made of components that encourage collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to restore your skin’s youthful firmness and volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers work instantly, whereas collagen-inducing fillers’ results gradually improve over several weeks.

What are the side effects of dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are completely safe and effective with no risk of harsh side effects or complications. You may experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites for a few days, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. Dr. Ramesh will select the ideal fillers for your specific goals to ensure optimal, consistent, and safe results.
