What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular procedure performed at skin and beauty clinics to enhance various areas of the face and body, reduce wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin, and address acne scars. This non-surgical method involves injecting substances to add volume, resulting in noticeable improvements in the skin's appearance. Unlike surgical procedures that require incisions and stitches, dermal filler injections offer quick results without the need for invasive measures.

Dermal Filler Types

Dermal Filler Types

Dermal fillers are divided into two general categories:

  • Dermal fillers made from the person's own body (fat cells)
  • Dermal fillers made in the laboratory (Gels)

Fat Cells

Fat cells used as autologous fillers are safe and produce natural-looking results. They are transferred from the thigh or abdomen to areas like the face and body. Successful transplantation requires a vascular connection for cell survival. Only 30-40% of the injected volume remains after 2-3 months. Over-correction is often done. Repeat procedures may be needed after 6 months to one year. Fat grafting is a natural and safe way to add volume.


Dermal filler gels can be divided into two categories: permanent and dissolvable. Permanent fillers remain in place over time but can come with complications and are difficult to remove. Dissolvable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid derivatives, are absorbed by the body over months to two years. They are a safer option with fewer complications and can be reversed if needed. The drawback is that they require repeat injections and can be costly, but they are currently the best option available.

Dermal Filler Treatment

Application of Dermal Filler Treatment

Dermal fillers are versatile injectable materials that offer various benefits and applications for rejuvenating and enhancing different areas of the body. They are commonly used in anti-aging skincare treatments and can be applied to the following regions of the skin:

  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Tear troughs
  • Submental area
  • Glabella
  • Acne scars

In addition to these facial applications, dermal fillers can also be used to enhance and volumize various facial features, including:

  • Lips
  • Nose
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Under eyes
  • Jawline
  • Forehead

Overall, dermal fillers offer a wide range of applications to enhance and rejuvenate different areas of the face, providing natural-looking results without the need for surgery.

Dermal Filler Before and After

Pre-Filler Injection Care:

Avoid blood thinners like aspirin two days before the injection to reduce bruising.

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol.
  • Keep your skin clean before the treatment.
  • Avoid putting pressure or rubbing the skin while showering.
  • Don't use cosmetics before the treatment.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and tanning two weeks before the injection.

Dermal Filler Aftercare:

  • Apply a cold compress to prevent swelling and bleeding.
  • Avoid washing your face for 24 hours after the injection to prevent movement of the filler.
  • Refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol.
  • Avoid using cosmetics for 24 hours to prevent infection.
  • Sleep with your head elevated to minimize swelling and inflammation.
  • Avoid heavy physical activities and exercise.
  • Stay away from saunas, Jacuzzis, and hot showers.
  • Postpone activities like skiing and playing in the snow.
  • Use sunscreen to protect the treated area and prevent irritation.
  • Avoid direct sunlight exposure.

Dermal Fillers vs Botox

Botox, or anti-wrinkle injections, prevents muscle movement to reduce wrinkles in the upper face. Dermal fillers use materials like hyaluronic acid to add volume and fill lines around the mouth, thin lips, and cheeks. They can also be used for deep forehead wrinkles, acne scars, and areas needing more volume.


Are dermal fillers permanent?

Dermal fillers can last in the body for up to 2 years. Usually, from the day of the injection, you have to wait for 3 to 6 months until the definitive and main results are visible. Of course, post-injection care is also very important.

Aare dermal fillers dangerous?

Dermal filler injections need to be performed at licensed and reputable beauty clinics. If done by an unqualified practitioner, they can easily lead to injury or infections.
