As we age, we tend to lose volume in areas of our face that used to be plump, like our cheeks. Losing this volume can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are an easy solution to this problem, but with so many different options on the market, it’s hard to know which to choose and what to expect from the process. Here’s what you need to know before adding volume back to your face.

Why They’re Popular

Dermal fillers are great for adding volume to areas of the face that have depleted over time or for areas with not very much volume to begin with, such as the lips, cheeks and under eyes. Using dermal fillers to add volume to these areas is a great minimally invasive and non-surgical alternative to getting facial implants that add volume back into the face. dermal fillers in Fort Lauderdale, FL

How They Work

Most dermal fillers are made from a compound called hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar in the body that binds with water molecules to add volume in areas of the face that should be nice and plump. Dermal fillers help to supplement the HA that has been lost over the years to restore your full, youthful look. Most of our fillers, from the Restylane® family, are HA fillers. However, we are now re-introducing Radiesse®, which is made of calcium hydroxyapatite. This is a more long-lasting filler that unlike HA, actually stimulates collagen production.
