Derma fillers are injected into areas of decreased volume that show up in your face over time due to aging, smoking and the effects of gravity and sun. These fillers are hydrophilic and the purpose is to add volume, thus diminishing or almost completely eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. These techniques are also used in conjunction with plastic facial surgery. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and provides volume and fullness in the skin. Over time, women lose this substance 33% faster. Derma fillers are modified to provide a volume-enhancing effect that will last longer than what would be expected from “naturally” occurring hyaluronic acid found in the body.
Derma filler is specifically designed for deeper lines and wrinkles. Many times both fillers are used at one session depending on the correction required. Your provider will recommend what is best for your concerns. The goal is to get you the longest duration possible. Your provider will also prepare you for the injection with an anesthetic block, numbing cream, or ice. There are numerous areas that are possible for treatment, including lips, nasal folds, and marionette lines around the mouth and under the eyes. Cheeks and other areas can also be enhanced with Derma fillers .
