How Dermal Fillers Work
Dermal fillers are gel substances that are injected with a needle or cannula into the skin. The fillers used at Biolite contain a naturally occurring ingredient found throughout our bodies, (hyaluronic acid) including in our skin and connective tissues. This means the fillers are biocompatible, non-allergenic and low-risk.
Together with collagen, this ingredient acts as your skin’s natural hydrator and volumizer. After injection at the treatment sites, dermal filler immediately begins drawing moisture into your skin and plumping the area. Some research indicates fillers can also stimulate collagen production, helping your skin rejuvenate itself from the inside out.
Our medical providers work with you to craft a personalized treatment plan that achieves your desired look. Dermal fillers can be used independently or combined with other treatments for complete facial rejuvenation.
