The gels are injected into the skin to fill fine lines, folds and wrinkles, and restore volume to the lips and face. They work simply by plumping the area to the point where the fine line is gone. Dermal Fillers are different from Botox, however, and the two shouldn’t be confused. Both treatments involve injections, but Botox is injected to immobilise muscle movement which result in wrinkles and fine lines, whereas Dermal Fillers are all about smoothing out the affected area by plumping it with a naturally-derived material. That being said, since Botox and fillers both work in different manners, many people decide to go for both treatments, which can result in a remarkably younger-looking face.
The effects of treatment are immediate, though the solution is not permanent, lasting, usually, between 3 and 18 months.
