What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers plump the skin and add volume to facial features. Many popular fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a molecule found naturally in the skin, but there are many other options. Skinatomy Laser Clinic has the best option available for each line, wrinkle, and facial feature by offering several of the most popular groups of dermal fillers.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
While some dermal fillers add immediate volume when injected, others act as a collagen scaffold to trigger more long-term results. We offer these dermal fillers:
- Juvederm® family
- Restylane® family
- STYLAGE® family
All of these except Bellafill® contain different formulations of hyaluronic acid. Because this molecule already occurs in the body, reactions to hyaluronic acid fillers are extremely unlikely. Some formulas address lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. Others restore lost volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face. Some formulas plump and enhance the lips.
Bellafill® contains microspheres of polymethylmethacrylate. When injected, this triggers collagen development and forms a new collagen framework that adds fullness and firmness. This filler also treats nasolabial folds and can improve the appearance of acne scars.
