Dermal fillers are also known as wrinkle fillers, facial fillers, soft-tissue fillers, or injectable fillers. As we age, we lose volume and elasticity in the face resulting in visible wrinkles, lines, and folds. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to help re-volumize the face and soften the appearance of wrinkles. Fillers can also be used to add volume to thin lips and to add contour to cheeks and other areas of the face giving a more youthful appearance.
Some can even be used to improve the appearance of aging hands. Many dermal fillers, such as Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne are composed of hyaluronic acid. Radiesse is a dermal filler composed of calcium hydroxylapatite. Bellafill is a collagen filler. Your provider can guide you as to which product is right for you.
