Injectable fillers, also called dermal fillers, are a popular medical aesthetic treatment used to replace or enhance facial volume. Lost volume is a normal part of the aging process, but it’s also what creates the lines, wrinkles, and folds associated with middle age and beyond.
When you’re young, your facial features have a softer, more rounded appearance. That’s because a thick layer of collagen creates natural padding in the deeper layers of your skin. As the years pass, you lose much of that collagen.
Your skin begins to pool and sag into lines and folds. Injectable fillers offer the chance to temporarily add fullness to your facial contouring by placing a smooth, gel-like substance that plumps your skin.
There are many different dermal fillers to choose from. Many, like Juvederm®, Juvederm® Voluma®, Juvederm® Volbella®, Volux®, and SkinVive are formulated from hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally.
When injected into your skin, the gel-like filler spreads to create added volume in the treatment area. Many areas require multiple injections, but numbing cream ensures you stay comfortable.
Some fillers are created to be thicker than others and add volume beneath deep lines or hollows. Others are much thinner and work well to reduce the appearance of fine lines at the corners of your eyes or around your lips. There are even fillers that can plump your lips or fill in the backs of your hands.
A liquid face-lift is a combination of injectable treatments that work together to create impressive improvements. Outside of plastic surgery, a liquid face-lift is the most effective way to refine facial contouring.
Botox® and Dysport® are often part of the process. Both work to prevent treated muscles from tugging and pulling the skin into lines and wrinkles.
Kybella® is an injectable treatment that destroys a portion of treated fat cells in the area beneath the chin. One or more treatments can dramatically refine your profile with lasting results.
Sculptra® is another type of injectable filler. In addition to delivering an instant volume boost, Sculptra also triggers your body to create new collagen, yielding results that can last for years.
