Dermal and facial fillers

Below is an overview of dermal and facial fillers, both of which are popular plastic surgery procedures. When considering facial improvement, it can be helpful to review the following information.

What are dermal and facial fillers?

Facial fillers are also referred to as dermal fillers, and they are a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that uses gel-based injections containing hyaluronic acid. While dermal fillers may sound similar to other facial rejuvenating procedures, they are actually quite different. Fillers in the face contain hyaluronic acid, which is already found naturally in the skin, thus making it safe and relatively natural to the body. 

They are used to restore volume and fullness in the face. Additionally, they can be used to soften creases and smooth out fine lines, which can restore youthfulness. Outlined below are a few other things that dermal fillers can address.

  • Restore fullness in thin lips
  • Improve scar marks
  • Reconstruct facial abnormalities 
  • Soften wrinkles and creases
  • Improve smile lines and crow's feet
  • Restore fullness in the cheeks

Oftentimes, dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other types of facial plastic surgery procedures, such as facial rejuvenation. While dermal fillers are great on their own, they can also be very beneficial when used to enhance other procedures. 


Dermal fillers offer a number of benefits including improved aesthetics, a youthful appearance, stronger skin and a natural plastic surgery option. Additionally, recovery times are less than a day because the procedure is not invasive, which cannot be said about other facial rejuvenation procedures. 

When to consider plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is very involved, which requires careful thought and consideration. With that being said, it is important that patients carefully consider their options, as well as their goals and desires. If the plastic surgery is cosmetic-based then oftentimes, it may not be essential; however, that is not to say that it will not be beneficial. On the flip side, if the plastic surgery is reconstructive-based then it may be to help improve function, which could be seen as essential.

In the case of dermal and facial fillers, the procedures are not really essential. However, many people can benefit greatly from getting either. Aesthetics can be improved, which can, in turn, boost one's confidence.
