Modern dermal filler injectables often contain a proprietary solution of synthetic hyaluronic acid that’s designed to closely mimic the hyaluronic acid your body naturally produces. As the gel-like substance fills in gaps and grooves with tiny uniform particles for detailed shaping and smoothing, hyaluronic acid goes to work.
Hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers attracts moisture, so your skin not only looks volumized and smooth, but it feels naturally plump to the touch. As hyaluronic acid gradually absorbs over time, it stimulates collagen production, leaving your skin firmer and tighter from the deepest layers.

Are dermal fillers permanent?
Dermal filler treatments are entirely long-lasting. Depending on which type of dermal filler you choose and the severity of your volume loss, you can experience optimal benefits for anywhere from 6-18 months, and sometimes up to 24 months.
