Fillers

The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic lines, a deeper fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face by replenishing your body's natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.

What are fillers, also known as facial or dermal fillers?

As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid, the natural filler substance in your body.

Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of this causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play.

Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression.

In fact, 2.1 million filler procedures were performed in 2018, just in the United States.

With age, skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to damaging sun rays and years of muscle movement (squinting, chewing, smiling) contribute to the breakdown of tissue and loss of volume in the skin.

If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift, smooth out a few fine lines, or fill in deep set wrinkles, fillers may be the ideal choice for you.

Fillers are a temporary to long-lasting solution administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of your face.

The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic lines, a deeper fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips.

Thanks to its ability to store moisture, fillers containing hyaluronic acid are responsible for giving skin a plump, hydrated look, while adding volume to weakened facial features and stimulating collagen growth.

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm are injected right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face by replenishing your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.

Not to be mistaken, fillers aren’t the same as neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport.

The latter type “freezes” muscles to reduce wrinkles, while fillers smooth out skin by filling wrinkles.
