Have you ever wondered how exactly dermal fillers improve facial volume loss? The answer is simple: hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring, gel-like substance in the body that fuses with water. It’s what gives us our youthful ‘plump.’ As we age, our body loses HA, which results in fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
That’s where dermal fillers come in. Made with hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers are injected into the skin to fill the space of lost collagen. The mid and lower parts of the face are particularly susceptible to aging and can benefit from hyaluronic acid.
Dermal fillers can treat:
- Nasolabial folds also known as smile lines
- Marionette lines (at the corner of mouth)
- Cheek hollows
- Under eye area
- Temporal hollows
There are many different types of facial fillers, each of which addresses different parts of the face or different types of wrinkling or volume loss. An experienced plastic surgeon can help you decide which type of dermal filler is right for you.
Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid are both reversible and temporary, meaning if you are not pleased with your results, you may have them reversed or they will fade away over time.
