The Skinny on Dermal Nonsurgical Fillers

Innovations in anti-aging skin care are on the fast track to meet the growing demand of baby boomers (and their parents). Nonsurgical fillers are treatment therapies that can improve the skin’s surface texture, reduce irregular pigmentation, and help reverse the effects of sun damage.

Fillers reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles by “plumping” furrows and hollows in the face, giving the skin a more youthful-looking appearance. Fillers (like Juvaderm) are very effective at contouring specific areas on the face, such as around the lips, including long, vertical “marionette” lines that start at the corners of the mouth and extend down the chin. Botox injections also diminish lines and wrinkles associated with facial expression, including vertical lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, forehead lines and furrows, and crow’s feet.
