With age, comes the decrease of the skins protein components known as collagen and elastin, which create fullness in the skin. When these two proteins diminish, the skin is left with wrinkles and parts of the face that appear sunken in, making some people appear a lot older than they may be. Injectable soft-tissue fillers are one of the most common procedures used to repair these problem areas of the face. The soft-tissue fillers are made from a naturally occurring complex sugar known as hyaluronic acid (HA). HA attracts and holds water, aiding in skin hydration, and combines with the skin proteins, collagen and elastin, to supply elasticity and support the structure of the skin. Soft-tissue fillers are carefully injected beneath the surface of the skin and work to diminish any wrinkles and restore volume to the face and lips.
These soft-tissue fillers are a great option for patients who desire more full, youthful appearing lips lifting the corners of the mouth, subsequently improving the contour of the jaw lines, or to treat common wrinkles appearing around the nose and around the nasal portion of the lower eyelid. Injectable THE ENHANCERSrs are an excellent, non-surgical way to reduce wrinkles, improve the volume of your skin and look young again!
Soft-tissue fillers can be identified under common brand names such as Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm®. Results will vary with each individual patient.
