What Are Dermals Fillers?
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane® are made of a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) found naturally throughout our body. HA is a complex sugar that maintains its three-dimensional shape in the body by attracting and holding large number of water molecules. In the skin, HA fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers and replenishes the natural support layers lost with aging while delivering essential nutrients and hydration.
Unfortunately, the amount of HA in the skin decreases as a result of pollutants, sun exposure, smoking and the aging process. In addition, over time the amount of HA produced by the body diminishes. By age 50, you have roughly half the HA of childhood. Fortunately, with dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane®, you can restore the HA in the skin and give your face the volume and structure lost with aging or enhance your current features without any surgical procedures. Often referred to as the “liquid face-lift”.
