Facial lines and wrinkles affect your entire look, making you look not only older but also less attractive and approachable. With injectable fillers, you can erase facial wrinkles and reclaim a softer and more youthful look.

Aging and Wrinkles

Aging causes volume loss in the face over time. As collagen levels decrease in the skin, the skin becomes thinner. Facial muscles and fat sag and atrophy, and the face develops hollows, noticeable creases, and jowls. Creases are worsened by sagging skin caused by a loss of skin elasticity over time. These signs of aging are quite a departure from the youthful appearance of full cheeks, strong facial definition, and soft facial contours. It’s true that wrinkles and lines are inevitable results of aging, but their formation does not mean that you have to live with them for forever. With the right kinds of treatments, you can fill in wrinkles or creases and rejuvenate your face.

What Injectable Fillers Can Do

Injectable fillers are an immediate and simple way to replenish facial volume. Made of the biocompatible substance hyaluronic acid, injectable fillers can soften fine lines and wrinkles and correct volume loss. Depending on where they are injected and which filler is being used, dermal fillers can redefine the lips, improve cheek volume, lift the mid-face, and enhance facial definition and contours. In doing so, facial fillers can rejuvenate your appearance and give you a softer look overall.

Choosing Your Filler

Dr. Pontell uses several varieties of injectable fillers for facial rejuvenation. These include JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Restylane® Lyft, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. Fillers are gels engineered to have different thicknesses and are designed to treat specific areas. Some also last longer than others. Dr. Pontell can help you select the filler that is best for your anti-aging needs.
