What Do Dermal Fillers Treat?

Hyaluronic acid and other dermal fillers are some of the most effective antiaging treatments available. In general, dermal fillers return volume and fullness to the face, eliminating overt signs of aging and imparting a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical way to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Enhance shallow contours (such as the the nasolabial folds)
  • Soften facial wrinkles and creases
  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers – Restylane® and Juvederm®

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally present component of connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate. Hyaluronic acid helps the body to lock moisture in the dermis which results in a more youthful appearance. The hyaluronic acid molecules lock in moisture because they bind many times their weight in water. Both natural and injected hyaluronic acid will degrade in your body over time. Hyaluronic acid injections help to achieve a fuller look for approximately six months. Brand names for popular hyaluronic acid dermal fillers include Restylane® and Juvederm®.

Hyaluronic acid is not a new product. In addition to being used for aesthetic purposes, hyaluronic acid has been used for more than 20 years to help improve arthritic joints as well as for eye surgery and wound repair. Its long term effects have been well tested and documented.

Hyaluronic acid naturally contains an anesthetic called lidocaine so there is no need for the use of topical or local anesthetic at the injection site. Additionally, there is a very low potential for allergic reaction because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that exists in the human body.
