You’d love to refresh your appearance by removing early signs of aging like frown and smile lines. They can eventually turn into deep grooves on your face. However, you may not want the expense, risks, and recovery time involved in a surgical facelift. Dermal fillers are a great answer that can help you achieve your goal.
Board-certified Dr. Tiffany Su leads the aesthetics team at Skin Shop MedSpa. She’s invested in the latest skin care and anti-aging aesthetic treatments. Dr. Su offers a comprehensive lineup of dermal fillers to tackle signs of aging caused by loss of two important skin proteins: collagen and elastin.
Dermal fillers help restore your youthful appearance: plump cheeks; full, luscious lips; smooth forehead; cheeks free of grooves when you smile; and a visible chin and jawline. Here’s what you need to know about how they work and which areas of your face they can help.
How dermal fillers work
When we inject a dermal filler, it goes to work to give specific areas of your face increased volume so that the skin on your fine lines and wrinkles becomes smoother, minimizing or eliminating your signs of aging. We carry a full suite of fillers composed of different formulas and ingredients that cover your problem areas.
We offer top brands and match them to the area of your face you want to have treated, the severity of the problem, and the condition of your skin. Many of our fillers use a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a lubricating substance produced in your body. Hyaluronic acid attracts and holds water; it keeps moisture in your skin. The fillers give your face the volume it’s missing from collagen loss.
Five of the most popular areas for dermal fillers
You may be wondering if dermal fillers can smooth out your signs of aging. Following are the top five areas on your face where dermal fillers can make a dramatic difference.
Do your lips look like thin lines crossing your face? Have they lost their youthful plumpness?
We may use Revanesse® Lips™ or Juvéderm® Volbella® XC to increase volume in your lips and soften the vertical lines that form above them.
Your cheeks used to look full and healthy. Now they may give you a tired, drawn appearance if the skin has loosened and has started to sag. Loss of collagen and elastin is the culprit. Our fillers plump up your cheeks so that you have a naturally youthful appearance.
Does your forehead feature frown lines between your brows? Those lines can give you an angry appearance. Dermal filler injectables are excellent remedies for deep horizontal creases and frown lines.
4. Chin and jaw
Fillers can help firm up your chin and stave off the appearance of jowls. They can help redefine your jawline.
Are marionette lines making grooves from your nose to your mouth when you smile? We can smooth out these unattractive lines that make you look older than you are.
