What are fillers?
As we age, loss of collagen, elastin, and the soft tissues in your face leads to skin sagging, wrinkling, and overall volume loss, and a hollowed, gaunt, or tired look. Selecting the right amount and type of dermal filler can help rejuvenate your appearance without looking overdone, leaving you looking restored, refreshed and healthy.
Soft tissue fillers are also known as dermal fillers. The main goal of fillers is to restore lost volume and smooth facial wrinkles. Most dermal fillers are made with a main ingredient called hyaluronic acid or HA, which occurs naturally in the body. HA bonds to water in the skin to provide hydration and volume. As we age, the soft tissues of the face atrophy (thinning, diminishing), which contributes to the hollowed facial look associated with aging. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the soft tissue of the face or hands, volume is restored, leaving you with a very fresh, revitalized, youthful look that is distinctly you – not overdone.
