Wrinkles and lines are the most obvious signs of aging, but sometimes the skin can sink, leaving your face looking hollow. The loss of skin elasticity contributes to all of these signs of aging and is part of what makes you seem older and more tired regardless of how you may feel. Dermal fillers are a cosmetic solution that adds volume and reduces the appearance of a variety of aging signs.
Some of the most popular dermal fillers are Juvéderm and Restylane. These two brands of filler fall into a class of fillers made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the body and is known for its ability to hold 1,000 times its volume in water. As an injection, Juvederm is excellent for lip augmentation and filling out wrinkles, with the benefits lasting up to a year.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Perhez Jaffer if you would like to know more about the different kinds of dermal fillers.
