Dermal Facial Fillers
With aging, in addition to skin laxity and the affects of gravity, there is volume loss in the face. Over time, this leads to deep nasolabial folds, loss of volume in the cheeks, and fine lines around the mouth.
The most common soft tissue fillers used today contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the skin. Since these products are naturally made in the skin, they are the safest type of filler available with almost no risk.
In addition to restoring volume to areas like the cheeks and smile lines, soft tissue fillers can be used to fill scars, acne scars, or any depressions. In addition, for those who seek fuller lips, they can be used to naturally enhance the appearance of the lips.
Depending on the location and type of product used, the effects can last from six months to two years.

In the field of cosmetic procedures, injectable soft tissue fillers have created new dimensions, enabling natural-looking facial rejuvenation and wrinkle removal in a non-surgical manner.
Dermal filler injections increase the facial tissue volume, mitigate wrinkles, and enhance the overall contour of the skin.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Juvederm comprises hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a natural complex sugar that enhances the volume and elasticity of the skin. It is naturally found in all living organisms. HA facilitates the delivery and retention of nutrients and moisture to the skin, and levels this compound in the skin naturally decrease with the process of aging.
The HA in Juvederm is developed using a cutting-edge production process. It is specially formulated as a smooth, malleable gel to make sure that the most natural-looking outcomes possible.
Juvederm is suitable for any facial region, including creases and lines around the nose, mouth, and forehead. The procedure can be used to contour the face and soften the appearance of scars, such as acne scarring.
In addition, Juvederm can be used to improve the shape and size of the lips. All of these regions will show significant improvement after the Juvederm filler treatment.
Restylane dermal filler comprises a clear HA-based gel that fills in facial lines and wrinkles while simultaneously adding moisture to the skin, helping it appear more youthful and rejuvenated.
Almost any facial area can be treated with one of the multiple Restylane soft tissue fillers. This dermal filler can lessen the appearance of deep folds, creases, and light wrinkles.
Fine lines around the mouth and laugh lines are among the most popular treatment areas. It is also possible to enhance the facial contours, typically achieved with the larger particle size formulations of Restylane. This innovative HA formula can address droopiness beneath the eyes, under-projected cheekbones, and recessive chins.
In another popular application, Restylane is used for lip augmentation to enhance the shape and volume of the lips for months following the treatment.
The loss of volume in the skin is an unavoidable element of aging. However, certain people lose more volume in the cheek or mid-face region in comparison to others. This can make the cheeks appear sunken with loose, thinning skin. Juvederm Voluma soft tissue filler injection is specifically meant to restore volume to the cheek area.
Juvederm Voluma has received FDA approval, and it can take several years off an individual’s face by creating a rounder, fuller facial appearance and offering a subtle mid-face lift. Juvederm Voluma gel is developed using the cutting-edge Vycross technology, which helps create a smooth and uniform gel composition offering the face a more even appearance.
Voluma is one of the more sustainable dermal fillers due to its higher HA concentration. A majority of patients can expect to sustain the outcomes with this dermal filler treatment for up to two years.
