As we age, our skin begins to change. Fine lines and wrinkles become more prevalent, and we lose volume in our cheeks and lips. Luckily, there is a way you can achieve younger looking skin without surgery or down time.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that doctors inject beneath the skin to increase facial volume, smooth lines and creases, and/or enhance facial contours.

Dermal fillers can be used for multiple things including:

  1. Smoothing out lines around the nose, eyes, and mouth

  2. Enhancing and restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples

  3. Plumping thin lips

  4. Smoothing out chin creases

  5. Improving facial feature symmetry

There are many FDA-approved dermal fillers on the market today. Fillers are categorized by the substance they contain. It is extremely important you always receive FDA-approved, brand-name dermal fillers and that an experienced physician performs the injections.

In this blog, we discuss four different types of fillers:

  1. Hyaluronic Acid

  2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite

  3. Poly-L-Lactic Acid

  4. Polymethylmethacrylate

Keep reading to learn how they work, pros and cons, and best areas of treatment for each.
