Dermal fillers are an integral element of aesthetic and cosmetic dermatology. The growing understanding of the characteristics of an ageing face has enabled the successful development of soft tissue augmentation. The rise in individuals using techniques such as dermal fillers are a testament to their efficacy and safety; primarily due to their biocompatibility when compared to previous fillers. Dermal fillers are used worldwide by both men and women to produce a more pleasing aesthetic by volumising, smoothing the skin and augmenting specific features. The beauty of dermal fillers is their ability to produce immediate effects without the need for surgery, while ensuring a natural yet defined appearance.
