As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers are used to directly plump the skin in certain areas on the face where there are wrinkles, or depressions. Although it involves a similar injection to BOTOX®, it is different since dermal fillers are used to improve skin’s smoothness, while BOTOX® is used to stop muscle movements that create wrinkles. At All About Family Dental, we use dermal fillers from Revanesse® to plump and smooth out:
Deep creases around the nose and mouth
Thin lips and vertical lines around the lips
Under the eye area
Scars from acne or chicken pox
Gauntness in the lower temple or cheek area
