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.

Who is an ideal candidate for fillers?

Dermal fillers are used to treat deep wrinkles and expression lines, as well as recessed or pitted scars.

The best candidates for fillers are:

  • Non-smokers
  • People with realistic expectations of the results
  • Those with moderate to severe folds or wrinkles, or other problem areas that they do not want to correct with surgery (for example, under eye circles, sunken cheeks, etc.)
  • Those without a history of extreme extreme allergies
  • Physically healthy
    Committed to a good skin health
  • Those unsatisfied with the appearance of your skin due to fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin or dry skin

Your aesthetic doctor will go over your medical history and allergen history to determine if there is an injectable option for you that won’t lead to a reaction.
