Cosmetic Dermal Fillers
If you read health and beauty-related articles, you may have come across the term "cosmetic dermal fillers". Dermal fillers are the newest trend in skin rejuvenation, as skin is stretched in a way that sagging skin is filled with a natural gel that makes it look taut and youthful-looking. Compared to other forms of skin alterations such as surgical treatments, tucks, and facelifts, dermal fillers are more practical, easy, and require minimal maintenance.

What are Cosmetic Dermal Fillers?
Cosmetic dermal fillers, or dermal fillers as they are commonly called, are injectable gels that have a collagen or hyaluronic acid base. They are injected under the skin to fill up the area that has sagged because of aging or skin injury. Dermal fillers have become popular in recent years because they are practical, painless, and the procedure does not take long.
Silicone is different from dermal fillers in such a way that dermal fillers do not require an incision where the silicone will be inserted. Through injection, the gel is introduced into the dermis of the skin to reconstruct the area and make it taut and youthful-looking.
Where are Cosmetic Dermal Fillers Used?
Cosmetic dermal fillers are commonly used for aesthetics purposes to help improve skin that has sagged due to injury or aging. They can be used under the eyes, on the cheeks, on the lips, on the jaw, and any other body part imaginable. Although most clients prefer to undergo dermal filler treatment to look young, there are also clients who undergo this procedure to help recover from skin injuries caused by deep wounds, burned skin, etc.
How Much do Cosmetic Dermal Fillers Cost?
If we are talking about the cost per vial, dermal fillers usually cost £300 apiece. For a cosmetic dermal filler treatment, you have to take into consideration the professional fees that you would have to pay as well. People who can afford a dermal filler treatment often do it in one session alongside a Botox treatment. For people whose budgets are limited, you have the option to target small areas in different, successive sessions. To get the best deals for your dermal filler treatment, visit several clinics to get their opinions and accurate estimates based on your need.
What are the Side-Effects of Cosmetic Dermal Fillers?
There are a small number of recorded cases where cosmetic dermal fillers have caused side-effects to a patient. Dermal fillers rarely trigger allergies. Although there are recorded cases of swelling and soreness, this is a typical reaction of the body from any type of injury (in this case, injury was caused by the insertion of a needle into the skin). There are also a few cases where the needle accidentally hit a small blood vessel in the process, causing the area to look bruised for a few days. Other than these "side-effects", there are no recorded cases that have caused serious health risks or death. The lack of side-effects is the likely reason why it is preferred by many practitioners and clients compared to other skin alteration procedures.
