Facial Fillers, also known as Dermal Fillers, work just like you might think they would, by filling in areas that are sunken in, or have creases, lines, and wrinkles due to loss of volume. This injectable form of facial rejuvenation takes just minutes to administer and can create a natural looking result that makes you look more youthful and vibrant. There are several different types of Facial Fillers and each has its own strengths. Juvederm®, made with hyaluronic acid–a naturally occurring complex sugar found in all living cells–to smooth our folds and wrinkles, particularly those that run along the side of the nose and mouth. Restylane® is also made with hyaluronic acid and treats those nasolabial folds as well as lip lines, and can even enhance the lips themselves.
RADIESSE® is used for more severe facial wrinkles and folds and BELOTERO® is a prescription injection used for moderate to severe nasolabial folds. In some cases a combination of more than one facial filler may be used or other facial rejuvenation treatments may be used in combination with one or more facial fillers.
