Recently, a study has revealed that 80-year-old participants who were injected with dermal fillers slowed the skin’s aging. We previously knew that dermal fillers could make us appear younger, but until now we were not aware that they could actually improve the health of the skin as well. Restylane was injected into the buttocks of the patients. Samples of the skin were then taken at different times during the 12 week study. The end result of the study was that the areas treated with Restylane had more collagen, which caused the skin to grow thicker and to produce more blood vessels, both signs of healthier and more youthful skin.”
Fillers If you’d like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.
Although they can’t help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatment aren’t permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.
Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. Your plastic surgeon will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.
Juvederm is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that the body makes in order to maintain skin water content and is a great choice for erasing laugh lines, filling in acne scars, banishing under-eye bags, and lip enhancement.
Radiesse is a filler made of calcium hydroxylapetite spheres floating in a gel. Radiesse has an additional advantage of stimulating your own skin to produce collagen. Collagen is the framework that keeps skin firm and youthful looking. Radiesse is great for moderate-severe facial wrinkles, especially nasolabial folds, also known as “smile lines”. Smile lines extend from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth and are a telltale sign of aged skin. Radiesse is also a fantastic choice for enhancing the shape of the face.
Restylane is an injectable gel filler that immediately restores youthful volume to the face. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid- a natural, non-animal derived substance.

The effects of Restylane last for months- they are not permanent, giving you a more control over the amount of results you desire.
