Guide to First-Time Filler

Here’s your complete guide to dermal fillers, where they can be applied, and how they work to enhance and provide a naturally contoured look.

What are dermal fillers and lip fillers?

As you age, your face will naturally lose volume over time (thank gravity for this). Dermal fillers contain a soft, almost gel-like form of hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in your body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. Hyaluronic acid is considered a super ingredient in the aesthetic world.

You’ve probably seen hyaluronic acid as an ingredient in your moisturizer or serum. It acts as a humectant, which means it draws water into your skin for ultimate hydration. When hyaluronic acid is used in a filler, the results are subtle and natural—but effective.

When applied, dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid add structure back to your face by plumping up the volume from the inside-out. The result? A smoother appearance of lines and wrinkles, and a full, natural look—with nearly instant gratification (i.e. you’ll see results fast).
