Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Boletero) are composed of hyaluronic acid, a large water-absorbing molecule found naturally in our skin, where it provides firmness and volume. As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin naturally decreases, resulting in the loss of volume and firmness associated with aging. The end result is skin looseness, thinness, and wrinkling.
Fillers are injected into areas of volume loss and wrinkling to restore youthful contours and tent up creases. After the procedure, the lifting effect is usually instantaneous. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally broken down by the body, fillers may need to be performed every six to nine months on average.
Filler injections require a combination of surgical skill and aesthetic talent. The injector should have a profound surgical understanding of the three dimensional anatomy of the human body to inject into the correct anatomic location. The best outcomes involve subtle changes and a natural appearance.
