Dermal Fillers and Lip Augmentation
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are made of naturally occurring substances such as polysaccrides (sugar molecules) and that can be injected into the body to smooth wrinkles and fill hollows around the eyes, cheeks and chin. Fillers can also assist in lip augmentation processes. Popular fillers include Juvederm Voluma™, Juvederm XC™, Restylane™ , Radiesse™ and Bellafill®.
Am I a Candidate for Filler?
If you are over the age of 30 then you are likely a candidate for a dermal filler. As we age, we lose fat in certain parts of the face, and hollows can develop under the eyes, in the cheeks and around the mouth. These contour depressions make our face appear tired, older and less energetic. This aging process often begins in our 30s.
