Soft Tissue Fillers

Soft tissue fillers are used to treat wrinkles that occur when a groove develops in the skin due to gravity, loss of subcutaneous tissue, and/or repeated muscle contraction. The filler is placed into the valley of the wrinkle line to bring the skin back up to the level of the surrounding tissue. There are a number of excellent products that may be employed to as soft tissue fillers. Areas where fillers are particularly beneficial include: nasolabial folds, lips, marionette lines, tear trough, and volume augmentation for the brow.

Hyaluronic Acid – One answer to lasting wrinkle correction is the hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is used as a cosmetic dermal filler, made from a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. This means it is very unusual to have any allergies or reaction to the filler product. Hyaluronic acid maintains its shape using the body's own moisture. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results. The wrinkle improvement may last 6 to 12 months or longer.

The hyaluronic acid material is placed into the wrinkle lines with an injection technique. Topical or injected anesthetics are used to make the process comfortable. Almost everyone experiences some swelling and occasionally some bruising after the treatment. This diminishes after 3 days. If you're considering a wrinkle correction treatment, we invite you to learn important facts about Restylane. Restylane® has been used in more than 1.5 million treatments in over 60 countries and is now approved in the U.S.

Collagen - Collagen has been successfully used as a filler for decades. Collagen is available in two forms, bovine and human collagen. For patients who have used the bovine collagen successfully in the past, we continue to use this material. New patients may wish to consider human based collagen which does not require patch testing prior to use. Collagen is the filler of choice for very fine or superficial wrinkles that are treated with filler materials. Although somewhat shorter in longevity than hyaluronic acid ( 2 to 4 months), collagen still works nicely for fine lines and in the thin skin. As an example, collagen and hyaluronic acid can be combined in the same treatment if one wishes to define the edges of the lips with collagen as well as fill volume in the lips with hyaluronic acid.
