Wondering what to do about sagging jowls? Loss of volume is the trademark of an aging face, because it causes the face to sag, and contributes to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are regularly used to replenish volume and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. But with so many options on the market, how do you know what’s the best dermal filler for volume loss.
What’s the best dermal filler for volume loss?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are considered ideal for volume loss and are generally used to smooth wrinkles, and enhance volume in the cheeks and chin.
HA is found naturally in the skin and helps keep it plump and hydrated, but the body’s production of HA diminishes with age. However, using a HA filler to restore facial volume is a safe solution that provides natural-looking results.
When HA fillers are injected into the skin they attract and store water. The increased volume smooths lines and wrinkles, and gives the skin a plump, lifted appearance.
