What are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers are injectable gels that are used for contouring and restoring volume to skin depressions and wrinkles as well as adding volume to the lips. Fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid or collagen, which are natural components of your connective tissue. Facial fillers diminish lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months. Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin.
Where can Facial Fillers be used?
- Thin upper and lower lips
- Nasolabial folds-lines around the nose that get deeper as we grow old due to loss of connective tissue components (collagen and hyaluronic acid)
- Marionette lines-hollow appearance at the corners of the mouth
- Forehead wrinkles
- Sunken cheeks and cheekbones
- Nasal furrows
