Lost facial volume is a leading cause of visible aging and is something that happens naturally as the years go by. When you’re young, a thick layer of collagen gives your face a naturally rounded contouring, often referred to as a “baby face.”
Over time, you lose much of that collagen, and unfortunately, your body doesn’t naturally replace that lost tissue. Without the same padding, your skin begins to sag and pool into folds, lines, and wrinkles. Some people see sagging at their jawline; others notice changes in the skin beneath their eyes.
Dermal fillers work by replacing that lost volume with a soft, gel-like substance. Most fillers are created from a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally.
There are many different dermal fillers on the market, each designed for use in specific areas of the face. Some of the areas where dermal fillers create beautiful results include:
Some fillers are thin and perfect for use in smaller areas. Others are much thicker and deliver an overall plumping effect in larger areas like the mid-face.
There are even dermal fillers created to plump your lips and refine your lip line, as well as options to soften and smooth the backs of your hands. Fillers deliver temporary improvements, with options that last from four months to a year or longer.
A liquid facelift is a term used to refer to a combination of dermal fillers and neurotoxin injectables like Botox®. In the hands of a skilled and experienced practitioner, a liquid facelift can create impressive results.
Your face is unique, and your facial contouring needs are also one-of-a-kind. A liquid facelift is a highly customizable treatment that begins with a discussion of your goals. A quick skin assessment also guides your treatment planning.
