Dermal filler is a gel-like matter which doctor injects under your skin. Usage of dermal fillers can fulfill various needs of people such as the lifting of cheekbones, reducing under-eye circles, smoothing of lip lines and increase volume in lips. Dermal fillers are a mixture of various natural and synthetic elements. The most common element used in the dermal filler is hyaluronic acid. This acid helps to hydrate and bounce the skin. Dermal filler can last for a minimum of six months depending upon particular chemical makeup.

There are other dermal fillers that are made of calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, autologous fat and methacrylate. Calcium hydroxylapatite is used in dentistry and plastic surgery for many years. Poly-L-lactic acid helps to excite collagen production.


It is true that dermal filler is very much expensive but do not try to buy dermal filler from the black market. The report of medical literature and media outlets have shown us the harmful effect of self-injecting of fillers by non-professionals. If you purchase dermal fillers online, keep in mind that the fillers may contain various elements like hair gel. You can face various types of allergic reactions, dead skin cells and infections. Online purchase of dermal filler can lead you to blindness. According to FDA, you should not buy dermal fillers online as they can be harmful to your body.


To reduce aging effects, a noninvasive treatment like dermal fillers is great! But like all medical procedures, it should be done by the right person. The dermal filler procedure should be done only by a specialist with good experience; and finding that right person is key to solving your aging signs. You should always inquire about the physician’s training, certifications, and experience before you undergo such procedures.
