How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are designed to improve facial aesthetics by injecting the fillers into the skin. They are often used to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, to contour and create volume in targeted areas, and to revitalize the skin. The fillers can also be used to help protect joints and other moving parts of the body as a lubricant or shock absorber.

The base of the dermal filler is Hyaluronic acid (HA), which naturally exists in the human body as well as most living organisms. The HA does not come from animals but is a sugar molecule that can be naturally absorbed. It is a gel which will bind to water in the body when injected because it closely resembles the natural acid found in humans.

The injections will add volume and shape to the targeted area, creating a fuller, more even skin tone. Some of the more common uses of dermal fillers are:

  • Smooth lines that form between the mouth and nose
  • Smooth lines between the eyebrows
  • Smooth out a chin crease
  • Add volume or shape to lips
  • Remove vertical lip lines
  • Restore volume to sunken cheeks
  • Improve facial symmetry 

Types of Dermal Fillers

There are different types of FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approved dermal fillers being used today. At Newport Beach MedSpa, we offer dermal fillers by:

  • Juvéderm
  • Restylane
  • Xeomin

Botox can also be used to rejuvenate a more youthful appearance. These injections will also help reduce muscle activity in the targeted area that causes wrinkles.
