Although some misconceptions still exist, most patients have heard of dermal fillers and how they can safely and effectively reduce signs of aging like lines and wrinkles. If you are considering undergoing this type of facial sculpting treatment, you likely have some questions that you would like answered.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are products that help to combat the appearance of facial volume loss. Volume loss is one of the main causes of facial aging that involves an increase of skin laxity and a reduction in subcutaneous fat due to the aging process. The end result is that you appear older and more tired. The fillers themselves are injectable substances that help to promote increased skin volume for a reduction in lines and wrinkles and a natural-looking alteration of the facial anatomy.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
The most appropriate candidates are those with realistic expectations. Good candidates for the treatment also include those with light to moderate wrinkles or folds, or other difficult areas like sunken cheeks, eye circles, sunken temples, etc. The best candidates are looking for a significant reduction in lines and wrinkles without needing to undergo surgery or experience extensive downtime.
What are Some of the Most Popular Dermal Fillers?
Juvederm® is extremely popular right now because of the way that it offers significant anti-aging results for a wide range of facial areas. Juvederm® is actually an umbrella term for various products in a family of injectables.
Juvederm® works by increasing facial volume through an injection of something called hyaluronic acid. This special substance has the unique ability to attract and bind many times its own weight in water. Think of Juvederm® as an internal moisturizer that goes to work to immediately plump and hydrate your skin.
Radiesse® is another popular filler involving the injection of something called calcium hydroxylapatite. Once injected, Radiesse® immediately begins increasing facial volume to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.

How Long Do the Results Last?
The answer depends upon the type of product that you were treated with and other factors. One important point to remember is that fillers will eventually be absorbed by your body, and you will need follow-up treatments at that point to maintain the results.

TREATMENT: Male Facial Sculpting Using Dermal Fillers REASON: Micro-optimization of masculine male facial features HOW IT WORKS: So many men are coming to me for enhancement of signature features and to give their faces more contouring and shaping. This younger male patient, already has a very bold, masculine and squared-off appearance to his face but always looks to give it more definition by shadowing areas such as the cheeks, jawline, chin and lips so his face looks more sculpted. The filler is injected slowly in ‘micro-aliquot’ amounts with cannulas and needles in layers to get the face to lift and areas of the face we wanted shaped, defined. You can see immediately the shaping and optimization of his already defined facial features and how ultimately he will maintain his modelesque apperance. Trust your face to an expert.
