Dermal fillers are a popular minimally invasive procedure that can help plump lips, remove wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars from acne or burns. These fillers work by restoring fullness to the face and diminishing unwanted facial lines.
As we age, our face naturally loses subcutaneous fat, which can make smile lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet more visible. Factors such as sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle can also have a negative impact on the skin.
Dermal fillers can help combat these early signs of aging by increasing volume in areas such as the lips, cheeks, chin, and back of the hands. They can also correct contour deficiencies, such as wrinkles and acne scars, and soften moderate to severe facial skin folds, such as the lines from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth and small wrinkles around the mouth and lips.
While some patients may require a partial or full surgical facelift, dermal fillers have the potential to delay the need for surgery. However, it’s important to note that dermal fillers require ongoing maintenance for long-term results.
