Fillers Q & A

Dermal fillers, injectable substances designed to replace or enhance facial volume, play a crucial role in counteracting the effects of aging. The depletion of facial volume is a significant contributor to visible signs of aging. In one’s younger years, a substantial layer of collagen contributes to skin plumpness, creating the rounded contours associated with youth.As time progresses, the natural decline of collagen occurs, leading to the loss of volume. Without this inherent support, the skin begins to sag, forming folds, lines, and wrinkles. The body does not naturally replenish collagen.

Dermal fillers effectively restore a more youthful appearance by smoothing the skin and reinstating the rounded contouring of the face.

A variety of dermal fillers are available, each designed for specific areas of use. Many fillers consist of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in your skin.Dermal fillers exhibit a gel-like consistency. Thicker formulations prove effective in smoothing deep lines around the nose, mouth, and chin. On the other hand, thinner formulations are ideal for addressing areas such as crow’s feet, vertical lip lines, and smaller lines and wrinkles.

Some fillers are specifically crafted to plump the lips or enhance the lip line. Additionally, fillers are beneficial for smoothing the backs of the hands, an area prone to showing signs of aging even before the face.

Beyond providing immediate results, research indicates that dermal fillers stimulate the body to generate new natural collagen. This collagen production extends the effects, persisting even after the body absorbs the filler material.

The term “liquid facelift” describes a combination of dermal fillers and neurotoxin injectables like Dysport® or Botox®. When administered by a skilled medical professional such as Dr. Kahan, these treatments can yield impressive results.A liquid facelift provides an opportunity to temporarily reverse the signs of aging. Many individuals opt for injectables over plastic surgery due to the lower risk of complications and the absence of significant downtime associated with a liquid facelift.
