Evolution of Beauty: Dermal Fillers
Looking to quickly reduce lines and wrinkles? Add volume? Eliminate sagging skin? A dermal filler is the best bet for fast and effective results. There are a few options out there and a short history of mediums used. Present day fillers are safe, non-invasive, and designed to target specific areas and problems.
Where did this technology come from? At the turn of the 19th century physicians were using fat transplants from other areas of the body (like arms) to fill facial defects. Over the next few decades, other fillers like silicone and animal collagen were experimented with as well as uses for fillers other than just defects. Fast forward another 50 years and we have the start of modern injectable fillers and the successful use of Hyaluronic Acid. Here at Beautique we utilize various forms of Hyaluronic Acid such as Juvederm®, Volbella®, and Voluma®. Dermal fillers have revolutionized the plastic surgery industry. No longer do you have to consider an invasive operation to look younger. Results are also instant and continue to look better over time. The best part? Minimal down time. You don’t have to hide out in your house for weeks waiting for your face to heal. Amazing right?
Injection fillers are not just for a pouty pucker. The Juvederm® family of dermal fillers features injectable gel filler and is available in different thicknesses for different needs like wrinkles and lines. Volbella®, caters to the lips while Voluma® treats sagging skin and sunken cheeks. As we age, the molecular structure of our skin begins to break down. The video below shows exactly how it all works.
