Soft tissue fillers, also called dermal fillers, facial fillers, or simply “fillers”, are used to fill up defects in the soft tissues, typically wrinkles, folds and dents in the face. Some fillers are intended to add volume, for example to the cheekbone or the chin and are often used for lip enhancement.
Facial fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse, can be injected into the skin to reduce wrinkling, restore lost facial volume, and resculpt facial contours. All this can be accomplished with no downtime or discomfort, no anesthesia, and no incisions.
Dermal fillers are effective for
• Plump thin lips
• Enhance shallow contours
• Soften facial creases and wrinkles
• Improve the appearance of recessed scars
• Reconstruct contour deformities in the face
• Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
