When a person ages, the face naturally loses the subcutaneous fat, and the facial muscles are then forced to work closer to the skin surface. As this occurs, it makes smile lines around the mouth, and crow's feet around the eyes become more visible. The skin on the face will also stretch slightly adding to the loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to help diminish facial lines and to help restore volume and fullness in the face.
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in treating those early signs of aging. There are several uses for dermal fillers including:
The biggest difference between dermal fillers is the size of the particles used, the active ingredient, and the quantity in each vial. Most fillers have hyaluronic acid and some have additional qualities that will impact their suitability for injection. To make sure the right filler is chosen for your treatment, you should discuss your specific needs in advance. Sonoma Skin Works offers Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Dysport, Perlane, and Kybella.
