Dermal fillers, such as Restylane, are a crystal-clear gel form of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. The hyaluronic acid holds water, which hydrates and gives volume to the skin. Dermal fillers have been used for a long time for their healing properties and are also used for treating gum disorders. You'll find them referred by their trade names such as Restylane® and Hydrofil®.They are used for wrinkles, and deep folds such as the nasolabial area (lines that run from nose to mouth) and the glabellar region (frown lines between the brows. They are also used for augmentation of the lips and for filling out acne scars and other types of tissue deficiencies. They are also ideal for "trying on" augmentation before undergoing a more permanent procedure.
