Dermal fillers work by plumping up the area around the injection site. Over time, aging thins the upper layer of skin, the epidermis, decreasing its ability to serve as a barrier to retain water. Additionally, the body’s production of collagen slows, and the existing collagen becomes less effective. Thinning epidermis and decreased collagen effectiveness lead to eye wrinkles and other signs of aging. All dermal filers act as anti-aging products by reducing the effects of thinning epidermis and less-effective natural collagen. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body

The thicker consistencies are used for the cheeks/chin/nose/hands and the thinner consistencies are used for fine lines and under the eyes. Both can be used on the lips.
