WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

As we begin to age, our body stops producing collagen and elastin causing us to lose elasticity on the face. Due to the lack of collagen, we begin to get wrinkles and fines lines. But don’t worry! Here at VIP Laser we offer a solution that will make you look and feel young once again! With dermal fillers you will have a smoother and fuller appearance in no time!

Dermal fillers are gel like substance that are typically made up of hyaluronic acid. They are used to restore loss of volume on different parts of the face. Dermal fillers can be used for the cheeks, jawlines, lips, and around the eyes.

 

HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK?

Around the age of 25, we begin to start losing collagen and elastin. By your late twenties you will have completely stopped producing it altogether! However, with dermal fillers we can continue having the youthful look we all desire.

Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to restore the loss of volume on the face. This causes the fine lines and wrinkles on the face to be smoothed out! Dermal fillers can also be used to:

  • Plump and enhance lips
  • Restore volume on the face
  • Smooth out fine lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds or smile lines)
  • And more!

 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS?

There are a variety of dermal fillers. Fillers can be made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), poly-l-lactic acid, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), and more. Here at VIP Laser we have hyaluronic acid fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite fillers.
