Facial fillers are composed primarily of hyaluronic acid. Ingredients are added to create a gel like consistency. When injected into the skin, they create volume and attract water. Most people are familiar with the use of fillers in lips. Hyaluronic acid is a key component in the skin that attracts water and helps in the creation of collagen. As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid resulting in drier and more saggy skin. In addition to creating volume, fillers also help create more healthy skin.
- Lips: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There is no such thing as the perfect lip structure. With dozens of techniques and materials available, we strive to help our patients create the most beautiful and age appropriate lips possible.
- Cheeks and Tear Troughs: The eyes and cheeks are one of the first areas of the face to show ageing. The natural fat pads in our cheeks and under the eyes succumb to the effects of gravity in early adulthood creating prominent tear troughs and the hollow eye, baggy, tired look of age.
We utilize a number of different fillers to reduce the tear trough, lift the lines above the corners of the mouth, and create the beautiful apple shaped cheeks of youth.
- Jawline: Fillers can be used to create a sharper, more prominent jawline as well as create more prominence in the chin.
