Dermal fillers or injectable implants are gel-like substances that are injected into the skin in order to restore a smoother and fuller appearance, or augment facial features. They are minimally invasive, meaning they do not require surgery.
Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to fill in facial wrinkles and creases, as well as nasolabial folds, plump the lips, and add volume to the cheeks. There are a variety of fillers; some are made up of organic materials and some contain synthetic ones.
Fillers are not permanent, and naturally dissolve by time. They usually last anywhere between 6 to 18 months, and at some point you will need to repeat the procedure again. Filler duration and success are highly dependent on the amount of activity in the injection area, the type and volume of the filler, underlying tissue structure and where the filler is injected.

Lip fillers help eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, in addition to making your lips plumper. They can also change the size of your lips, and make them look fuller, which will, in turn, tighten the skin around your lips and reduce wrinkles.
