Apart from the lines and wrinkles that develop on the face over time, structural changes also occur. Facial volume loss happens as we age, as the natural support of the skin starts to break down. The shifting of fat pads downward, along with the shrinking of facial bones, contributes to an aging appearance with less defined facial features.
In this episode of Cutis TV, Dr. Sylvia talked about restoring facial balance and cosmetic fine-tuning using dermal fillers. She explained in detail the changes that occur in the face, with regards to loss of fat pads and aging of the skull. This is to demonstrate structural changes in the skin and determine the right placement of fillers.
She also went on discussing the goal of volume replacement in restoring facial balance in both young and older patients. Dr. Sylvia talked about the dermal fillers commonly used at Cutis Laser Clinics, as well as where they are typically used. These include hyaluronic acid or HA fillers (Juvederm) and calcium-based ones (Radiesse).
Dermal fillers, according to Dr. Sylvia, are among the most versatile treatments. This only means that how you place it, how deep you place it, and what type of fillers you used makes a big difference in the final outcome.
