As we age, our collagen production begins to naturally slow down, which leads to wrinkles forming along the cheeks, nose, and around the lips.
Many people who strive to retain a natural and rejuvenating face often seek medical treatment or plastic surgery. For those who do not wish to undergo surgery, dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical alternative that effectively treats facial symptoms, restoring a youthful and natural appearance.
Dermal Fillers: What It Can Address
One of the most common conditions treated on a patient’s face during facial rejuvenation is the reduction of wrinkles. The older we get, the deeper the creases throughout our face become, specifically smile and lip lines that occur from repetitive movements. Dermal fillers not only effectively restore a youthful appearance, but they can also reduce sagging skin and pre-jowl folds. Fillers best suited to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin would be:
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
Because the production of collagen in your face slowly deteriorates over time, this can also cause the shape of your cheeks to lose definition. Lack of collagen in your face may also lead to hollow cheeks and a gaunt appearance. Dermal fillers sculpt your cheeks to help reclaim facial volume to achieve a more full and youthful appearance. Fillers best suited to restore volume to the cheeks would be:
- Restylane® Lyft™ or Restylane Defyne™
Many patients who struggle with thinning lips will often turn to plastic surgery. Through temporary dermal fillers, plastic surgeons can provide patients with a thicker lip size while also creating an attractive pout to complement their facial appearance. Restylane® Refyne™ is the best option when it comes to plumping up the lips.
