As we age, collagen and hyaluronic acid – two key components of the skin that help maintain firmness and volume – gradually disappear. As a result, unwanted wrinkles and folds develop, lips become thin and flat, and the cheeks lose their youthful proportions.
Often referred to as soft tissue augmentation, "Fillers" are substances that are used to reverse the signs of aging by replacing the structure and volume that time has taken away. The procedure involves microinjections that diminish unwanted lines and folds, restore natural lip plumpness and definition, and re-contour the cheeks to a more youthful lifted appearance – all with little or no downtime. The ultimate result is completely natural – it’s still you, only better!
There are a variety of fillers – some of the more commonly used ones include Restylane, Juvederm and Voluma. A consultation will determine which filler is optimal for you.
