As we age we lose facial fat, bone structure, collagen, and elastin fibers. Dermal fillers are a common treatment approach to replace lost volume and help smooth wrinkles and restore an overall more youthful appearance.
Based on your anatomy, injections can be used to volumize the nasolabial folds (the two sets of parentheses that extend down from the nose to the corners of the mouth), the marionette lines (the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin), the mid face (cheeks), the jawline, lips, temple, and or tear troughs.
There are many different materials used as dermal filler:
• Hyaluronic acid (HA) – a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. HA helps keep skin plump and hydrated. Results from HA fillers typically last 6-12 months.
