Soft tissue fillers
As we age, some people might not see as many wrinkles, but can instead see certain areas starting to sag. This is due to collagen losing elasticity and volume in aging skin. Dermal fillers are injectable, naturally occuring protein that acts like a filler to help plump up problem areas and add structure to the face. Fillers can be used to fill out fine lines on the surface of the skin like smoking lines, and it can also be used to fill out deep areas around the nose, forehead, and cheeks. Fillers act like a sponge and bind water, creating volume in the injected areas, promoting smooth and soft skin. The results can be seen immediately, but are more subtle and delicate compared to a face-lift.
