The rapidly growing elderly population and considerable focus on personal grooming and aesthetic appearance is driving the demand for dermal fillers. Consumers are more aware of how the sun, environment, and lifestyle factors can age their skin. Dermal fillers can provide immediate, natural-looking results lasting several months to two years or more. They can help eliminate wrinkles and lines, reduce scarring, restore fullness, enhance facial contours, and add volume and shape to hollow or thinning areas, such as sunken cheeks and recessed temples.

As per the report, the global dermal fillers market by the material is segmented into hyaluronic acid (HA) and non-hyaluronic acid dermal fillers (calcium hydroxylapatite fillers, poly-l-lactic acid fillers, polymethylmethacrylate beads, and other).

Additionally, due to their versatility and adaptability, hyaluronic acid fillers can create natural-looking results and address a variety of indications. In 2022, Hyaluronic acid (HA) dominated the global dermal fillers market, and the trend is likely to continue during the forecast period.
