Comparing Types of Dermal Fillers
guide to dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular tools in the fight against aging. Hailed by some as “liquid facelifts”,  today’s dermal fillers for sale can reduce many common aging related issues such as wrinkles, thinning lips, or hallowing cheeks, without the pain or long recovery time associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.

This surging popularity has spurred the development of many different types of dermal fillers, each with their own benefits and specific uses. While having more choice is great for experienced injectors, choosing between filler treatments can get confusing for patients.
