Dermal Fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures offered in the United States. While less people may be familiar with Dermal Fillers than Botox, the two are similar in that they are both very effective treatments that are virtually painless and quick to administer. Like Botox, Dermal Fillers are injected into the face and the procedure takes just a few minutes. The primary difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers is that Botox targets aging caused by facial movement while Dermal Fillers target aging caused by a loss of volume. As we age our skin loses elasticity and we lose valuable fats in the face that keep our skin looking smooth and youthful. Dermal Fillers work just as they sound they might, by filling in the deficient areas of the face to create a natural looking, yet significant rejuvenation.
