Ever looked at a breathtakingly beautiful actor and thought to yourself – why don’t I look like that? Well, you have to accept the fact that not everyone is blessed with good looks. Some people are just born with flawless skin, plump lips and full cheeks. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look gorgeous if you don’t have such features.
A little skincare and help from your dermatologist can set you up. One of the most popular options for enhancing your beauty is dermal fillers. They are synthetic substances injected to your skin to make it plumper, radiant and remove wrinkles.
In this post, we will learn why dermal fillers are becoming so popular in India.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath your skin by the dermatologist. They can smooth out under-eye circles, remove fine lines and add volume to your lips. These can be applied to different parts of your face such as eyes, lips, jaw and cheeks.
Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. This acid is naturally produced by your skin. Injecting hyaluronic acid increases your body’s ability to produce it. This makes your skin look fresh and hydrated. Dermal fillers are also made of substances such as calcium hydroxylapatite, PMMA (Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres), Polyalkylimide and Polylactic acid.
If you are trying out dermal fillers for the first time, go for hyaluronic acid. They last for about 6 to 18 months. Other factors that determine how long the filler will last are –
- Skin type
- The thickness of the filler substance
- Dermal filler brand
- Treatment area
How Does It Work?
To understand how dermal fillers work, let us first get to know two substances – hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hyaluronic acid maintains the water balance of your skin. It also aids the transportation of nutrients all around your skin.

On the other hand, collagen keeps your skin plump and full. It works with another substance called elastin to maintain the elasticity of your skin.
Dermal fillers boost the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid in your body. Thus, your skin looks radiated, soft and youthful.
