As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent. In addition, the facial skin also stretches a bit, resulting in sagging skin. Sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle will worsen the aging process.
Dermal fillers offer minimally invasive procedures to correct the volume loss. In many cases, a hyaluronic acid based filler is injected which occupies space and attracts water to itself resulting in a filling effect.
Dermal Filler Can:
- Add volume to lips
- Correct shallow contours
- Soften facial creases
- Remove wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
