The collagen and hyaluronic acid levels in our faces tend to decrease as we age, which ultimately causes wrinkles. Wrinkles are unwanted signs of aging and are clearly found in the older population. As many of us involuntarily know firsthand, wrinkles can appear all over the face including around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, jaw line nose and brow.
Fortunately, I have great news for those with wrinkles! Soft Tissue Fillers can reduce the presence of wrinkles and replenish your youthful appearance.
Soft Tissue Fillers is a procedure offer a variety of beneficial dermatological results, such as plumper lips, softer and suppler skin, reduced appearance of scars, and a greater volume on deep folds and shallow contours (for example, hollow cheeks).

The Types of Soft Tissue Fillers
Many soft tissue fillers are designed for different purposes, and your dermatologist may provide you with a selection of fillers to choose from, including:
- Calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), which replenishes lost fullness and volume in your skin
- Poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra), which stimulates natural collagen production
- Hyaluronic acid, the base for brands like Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm, is usually utilized in the temporary treatment of lines around the mouth (i.e., laugh lines), in the augmentation of thin lips, and in the elevation of depressed scars.
The qualified dermatologist will decide on the type of soft tissue filler that is best for you. However, choices will depend on the type and severity of your skin issues.
