Summary Of Your Treatment
Our bodies naturally produce a substance called Hyaluronic Acid that keeps our skin firm and plump. However, production of Hyaluronic Acid diminishes as we get older. To replace lost Hyaluronic Acid, dermal fillers have been specially created which allow to fill in lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows in a smooth, natural looking manner. Some of the most popular gel fillers are Juvederm, Restylane and Emervel. Juvederm is commonly used to plump thin lips, minimize the appearance of marionette lines, smoker’s lines, and nasolabial folds. Restylane and Emervel are good for lip enhancement and lip border definition, and the jowl area. In addition, dermal fillers can also be used to improve the appearance of scars or dents on the face.
