Dermal Fillers at Forever Young Medical Spa in Philadelphia
Collagen is a crucial component in keeping our skin looking youthful and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. It breaks down over time. Fillers replace the fat we lose and help restore the fullness appearance to our face. Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are used to soften wrinkles and folds, add volume to sunken cheeks, enhance facial contours, plump thin lips, and improve the look of scars.
Dermal Fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a hydrating substance that is found in your skin. HA hydrates your tissues and acts as a cushioning agent. When we are young, fat in the face is evenly distributed. With age, the fat loses volume and shifts downward. This causes the skin to lose structure and sag.
What are the areas typically treated by Dermal Fillers in Philadelphia and the Main Line?
Smile/Laugh Lines These are lines around the nose also known as the nasolabial folds. As we grow, we lose fat, crucial connective tissue components such as collagen/elastin and hyaluronic acid in this area which result in these deep folds and a more aged appearance. Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® effectively reduce the appearance of these folds and give you a more natural appearance.
Marionette Lines Hollowness in the angles of the mouth. These lines are corrected along the nasolabial folds.
Lips Dermal fillers are used to give lips more definition and plumpness.
Cheek Enhancement As we age, our cheeks become shallow due to loss of fat, collagen/elastin, and hyaluronic acid. JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are used to restore full cheeks and give you high cheek bones.
Under-Eye Hollowness or Sunken Eyes Dermal Fillers restore the youthful appearance under the eyes and can help with dark circles.
