Why Dermal Fillers Are a Great Anti-Aging Option

You can’t stop the clock but, with some effort, you can roll it back for a while. Every part of our body eventually breaks down with age, including our skin and bones. The good news is that there are more options than ever to reverse the signs of aging. These options are minimally invasive, meaning you don’t need surgery to look years younger.

How Can Dermal Fillers Help Me?

Dermal fillers can restore volume to sunken areas like cheeks, as well as smooth and plump wrinkles around your eyes, nose, and lips. These injectable fillers can not only restore your youthful looks, but they can also enhance them by improving facial feature symmetry, one of the proven ways of increasing your beauty.   

Dermal fillers are made with a variety of FDA-approved substances, each one filling or plumping a different area on your face and sometimes other parts of your body. Using a variety of dermal fillers is sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift. One of the best parts about dermal fillers is while your looks can improve significantly with the use of them, the overall result is subtle.

One of the substances used in dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid, is naturally found in your body. Research suggests that injections of this substance can not only fill lines and plump areas on your face, but it can also boost collagen production. Collagen, a substance that diminishes in our body as we get older, is a protein that helps our skin look supple and firm.

What Types of Dermal Fillers Are Available?

At Precision Plastic Surgery, you can choose from a variety of the latest dermal fillers to improve whatever bothers you about your appearance. Many of the products come with lidocaine, to numb the area, so the injection is more tolerable. Dermal filler options include:


Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, a natural substance found in our bones. Radiesse is one of the thicker fillers, lasting up to 12 months. It’s used for smoothing and filling deep lines around the nose, also called nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and frown lines.

Juvederm® Ultra

All Juvederm products are made with hyaluronic acid, but have different consistencies, ideal for addressing lines, creases, and sunken areas in different parts of your face. Ultra is perfect for severe facial wrinkles and folds.

Juvederm Volbella

This hyaluronic acid product is used for giving lips a naturally full and plump look.

Juvederm Voluma

This Juvederm product helps correct volume loss in your mid-face by plumping and lifting. This treatment is long lasting, with results lasting up to two years, and can be used in your cheeks, chin, and jawline.


This lightweight hyaluronic filler helps smooth out fine lines around the mouth.

Other Anti-Aging Injectables

Kybella® and Botox® are also substances injected into your skin to improve your appearance and make you look younger. But these are not fillers. Botox is a neurotoxin that freezes the muscles that cause wrinkles, usually used in your forehead to eliminate lines between your eyebrows and above them, and around your eyes to eliminate crow’s feet.

Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that helps break down fat. This injectable anti-aging product helps reduce fat in a double chin.
