Non-invasive, temporary dermal fillers are being used by an increasing number of people, who also include well-known celebrities. Dermal fillers have become a go-to product, and not just for cosmetic augmentation. In fact, dermal fillers boost extensive surgical properties, such as treating dark circles and acne scars.
Most commonly known as injectable dermal fillers, popular brand names for the product include: Juvederm, Restylane, Profhilo Sofiderm and Stylage. The popularity of fillers rests on the fact they have no permanent effects. Also, they utilise a natural compound known as hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is produced naturally by the body, but it diminishes with time, resulting in the effects of aging.
Many celebrities have, in recent times, spoken of using or having used dermal fillers. Some of those celebrities include:
The controversial billionaire Jenner sister, Kylie is known for her range of make up and her dramatic ‘glow up.’ Part of this ‘glow up’ was a lip augmentation using dermal fillers performed by Dr Simon Ourian, which preceded her multi-million-dollar success as a beauty product icon.
