 If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer you’re looking for. Dermal fillers lift the face without the use of a scalpel. They can't help with excess sagging skin, but they can replace lost volume and provide immediate results at a lower financial and downtime cost and than surgery. The downside? Results aren’t permanent, so they must be repeated and maintained.
Soft tissue fillers are used to refill wrinkles, augment lips and noses, revolumize the midface (aka, the liquid facelift), define the jawline, fill scars, and rejuvenate aging hands and under eye hollows.

Popular dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid, calcuim hydroxylapetite, autologous fat, polylactic acid, and Artefill.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found in your body. It provides support and hydration to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is not derived from animal sources, so these are used without fear of skin allergies. HA fillers are also fully and quickly reversible, so if the patient does not like the result, it can be easily removed. HAs Familiar brand names include Juvéderm, Perlane, Prevelle, and Restylane.

Calcium hydroxlapetite (Radiesse) is found naturally in human bones. Radiesse, composed of calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel, helps to restore volume and promotes the growth of the body’s own collagen. This compound is used to fill the deepest creases such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines as well as to revolumize the midface. Radiesse provides lasting (but not permanent) augmentation.

Autologous fat is harvested from your own body. Using your own fat requires a 2-step process. First you have to harvest fat via liposuction prior to injection. Doctors tend to overfill the treatment area because not all of the fat cells will survive when transplanted. As a result, at first you might look overfilled, but within a week or two, the true results will become visible. About 25% of fat transfer patients require another transfer procedure to achieve their rejuvenation goals.

Polylactic acid (Sculptra Aesthetic) is unlike other dermal fillers because it doesn't produce immediate results. Instead, it stimulates collagen production, so results appear gradually over a period of a few months. Sculptra is known to work particularly well in the lower half of the face to fill laugh lines, to fill thin lips, and revolumize to pick up deep nasolabial folds.

Artefill (PMMA, polymethylmethacrylate) contains tiny microspheres that are suspended in a collagen gel. This is the only semi-permanent filler, which can provide long-lasting results. If you are unhappy with results, however, reversing the procedure requires surgical product removal. PMMA is often used to treat deeper wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to fill out scars and thin lips.
