Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin's surface so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent. Dermal fillers can be very effective in lessening the early signs of aging, including:
· Lips (volumizing)
· Nasal labial (smoothing "marionette lines")
· Cheeks (lifting and volumizing)
· Jawline (create definition)
· Chin (create definition and symmetry)
· Temples (add volume)
· Eye troughs (correct hallowing)
