The most common type of Dermal Filler is the Hyaluronic Acid Injections.
When we are younger we have plenty of Hyaluronic Acid, but as we get older this substance in our bodies reduces. Therefore, fine lines and wrinkles start appearing.

The amount of substance injected can be controlled on how much volume does the patient needs. It’s important for you to know that the results are reasonably long-lasting but not permanent and it depends on how your body reacts to the hyaluronic acid.
Before we go ahead to explain the steps of the procedure, we know some people get nervous by the word injection, with dermal fillers pain and discomfort is minimal, this because the procedure doesn’t take a lot of time, it can last as short as 15 min.
However, pain at the injection site may be ameliorated by using an anesthetic ointment to numb the skin or local anesthesia.
