Dermal Fillers Q&A
What You Need to Know about Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular anti-aging treatments available from your dermatologist. They are used to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother, firmer-looking skin. Dermal fillers can also help restore lost facial volume due to aging, diminishing the appearance of sagging skin.
What Happens to Your Face as You Age
Your face starts to lose fullness because your body naturally produces less collagen as you age. Collagen is the protein in your skin that keeps it full, smooth, and strong. Fortunately, when your body’s collagen production starts to diminish, dermal fillers can step in.
