Facial wrinkle fillers are used when natural aging and lifestyle factors diminish the natural collagen layer that supports the skin. And where collagen diminishes, unwelcome lines and wrinkle may appear. Facial wrinkle fillers are also used for correcting prominent nasolabial folds, cheek elevation, enlargement of lips, and elevation of acne scars. Treatment results are immediate and typically last three to twelve months, depending on the area being treated and which type of facial wrinkle filler is used. Without ongoing treatments, the facial wrinkle filler is gradually absorbed by the body and your face returns to its original contours. There are several types of facial wrinkle fillers including Restylane®, Juvederm™ Ultra Plus.
The facial wrinkle fillers offer these important advantages:
Restylane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. They are both composed of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid (a natural substance that already exists in the human body).
JUVÉDERM™ Ultra Plus injectable gel is a smooth consistency hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is used to fill moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The treatment results last approximately six months.
