Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are substances that are placed under the skin for cosmetic effect.  The term ‘dermal fillers’ is actually a misnomer.  Most fillers are injected not in the dermis, but rather beneath the dermis in the fat layers or on top of bony structures such as the cheek bones.  There are many types of dermal fillers as there are a number of brands of fillers.
