Dermal Fillers… What is all the buzz about?
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are products that add instant volume to plump up sagging skin and fill in and smooth out wrinkles on the face and neck. The treatments are very popular due to the high rate of satisfaction of seeing immediate results. Minimizing wrinkles, creases, and facial lines can restore aging skin to a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance lip volume, and define lip borders and to fill out shallow facial contours and enhance cheekbone appearance. They can even be used in the hands and ear lobes.
As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and collagen. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin that takes away from our youthful appearance. One way to enhance the skin’s appearance and look years younger is through the use of dermal fillers.
Fillers, like Restylane, Juvéderm, Voluma, and Radiesse have many benefits and uses.
