As we age we lose subcutaneous fat in our faces and our skin stretches resulting in a loss of facial volume. As this happens, our facial muscles begin working closer to the surface creating facial creases and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume and fullness to the face and diminish the signs of aging.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Add fullness to thin lips
- Soften facial lines and wrinkles (laugh lines, crow’s feet, etc.)
- Add volume to shallow contours
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers are made from naturally-derived or synthetic material and are injected directly into the skin. They add volume to the area where they are injected in order to make wrinkles, depressions or folds fade or even completely disappear.
