What is a dermal filler and what does it do?
Offered at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery serving Walnut Creek dermal fillers are medically formulated materials that can be injected into your face to smooth skin and add volume and contour. You may also have heard dermal fillers referred to as injectable implants or wrinkle fillers.
These fillers, however, are not neuromodulators made from neurotoxins that restrict muscle movement by interrupting the signals between nerves and muscles, causing them to relax. They are also not acids that break down fat. As the term implies, dermal fillers fill in lines and wrinkles, restore lost facial volume, and some also hydrate your skin from within or increase your body’s production of healthy connective tissue.
