Dermal Fillers Q & A
What are dermal fillers?
As you age, your skin loses the natural volume and elasticity that once made it look plump and smooth. That’s why your cheeks may start to look hollow, while the skin around your jaw begins to sag.
Dermal fillers restore this lost volume by injecting gel-like substances, such as hyaluronic acid, beneath the skin. Using dermal fillers, Dr. Henry can fill in wrinkles and even contour the skin to sharpen your jaw and cheekbones for a more youthful appearance.
Which areas can dermal fillers treat?
Unlike Botox, which treats dynamic wrinkles — those caused by repeated muscle movement — dermal fillers improve the appearance of saggy skin and wrinkles formed by volume loss (static wrinkles). Some of the most common uses for dermal fillers are to:
- Plump up thin lips
- Diminish lip lines
- Enhance sunken cheeks
- Smooth out chin dents
- Improve facial symmetry
- Reduce wrinkles around the mouth
- Minimize nasolabial folds (around the nose)
If you have deep wrinkles and creases in your skin, dermal fillers may be the right treatment for you.
Are there different types of dermal fillers?
Dr. Henry offers several high-quality types of dermal fillers at her Manhattan office, including:
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that can enhance thin lips, moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and perioral lines (around the lips).
Sculptra specifically targets wrinkles and folds around the mouth, nose, and chin by gradually replacing your body’s lost collagen. In many cases, Sculptra produces lasting results for up to two years.
Restylane uses hyaluronic acid to restore lost volume in the lips, around the mouth and nose, and in the cheeks and chin. It’s now approved to enhance the appearance of wrinkled hands.
Belotero Balance fills in deep creases and etched-in wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and nose, to provide natural-looking results.
Radiesse fills in deep lines and wrinkles while stimulating your body’s natural collagen production for lasting results.
