Dermal fillers are one of the fastest acting and longest lasting ways to reverse the signs of aging and contour your face. While dermal fillers all work differently based on their composition, hyaluronic acid — found in JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® — is one of the most common and most effective ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that attracts moisture, so your skin is plumper, softer, and more volumized almost immediately. But hyaluronic acid dermal fillers go a step further. They help stimulate collagen formation since collagen — a skin-tightening connective tissue — breaks down as you age.
So as your dermal filler injectable gradually starts to wear down over a period of 1-2 years, it actually leaves smoother, tighter skin behind. These injectables are ideal for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and scars, as well as for contouring your cheeks and plumping your lips. You can even get dermal filler injections to smooth out the skin on the backs of your hands. The following conditions can be treated by dermal dillers:
Mid-face volume loss
Jaw and chin definition and build up (including pre-jaw sulcus correction)
Temple hollows correction
Augmentation of lips
Hand volume loss
And so much more!
Downtime varies from no time to a few days, depending on the area treated.
