What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers help restore volume and fullness in the face, as well diminish facial lines. As we age, facial fat pads and compartments shift down and medial. In addition, skeletal bone loss can cause the face to transition from a “triangle of youth” to a “pyramid of aging.”
When we age, our faces slowly lose subcutaneous naturally. The muscles in our face then start to work closer to the skin surface, so the smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
Dermal fillers replace the volume loss that occurs as a natural part of the aging process.
