Dermal Fillers at a Glance

Dermal Fillers

One of the biggest trends in aesthetics is using dermal fillers on patients who wish to soften lines and wrinkles. For men and women alike, dermal fillers are among the most popular anti-aging treatments. Why? Because they are affordable with little to no down time.

In fact over 2.6 million dermal filler procedures were performed last year. If you’re new to dermal fillers, here’s more about what you should know.

What exactly are dermal fillers?

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and our faces lose subcutaneous fat, making lines and wrinkles more obvious. In addition to aging, genetics, sun damage and other lifestyle factors can affect the look of our faces over time.

But the good news is, there are solutions that can take years off the face…sometimes in mere minutes.

Dermal fillers are comprised of naturally-derived or synthetic material that medical aesthetic professionals inject into the skin to diminish facial lines and restore volume in patients’ faces. Dermal fillers can help soften facial creases, recreate lost contour, plump areas of volume loss and even help to plump the lips and improve the appearance of scars.

Dr. Andrew Lofman specializes in Juvederm Voluma, one of the latest and most popular dermal fillers out there, at his metro Detroit plastic surgery office.
