Types of Wrinkle Fillers, Uses, and Benefits

If you have concerns that involve the visible signs of aging, there are viable options that can help. A variety of dermal fillers can provide solutions to rejuvenate your skin and help you feel great about the way you look at any age.

Also known as injectable fillers, dermal fillers are a useful tool in restoring fullness and volume to the face and hands, ultimately reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and other age-related concerns. As we get older, many of us experience facial fat loss and volume depletion as a natural consequence. Fillers are gel-like substances that are injected underneath the skin. Many of the elements found in fillers also occur naturally in the body, making them well-received by most patients. Some individuals enjoy the benefits of combining fillers with other complementary skin care treatments to give their appearance an extra boost. No matter what your aesthetic goals, our friendly and knowledgeable staff is eager to assist.

Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute in Greater Philadelphia, PA, offers a range of dermal filler products. With two convenient locations in Lansdale and Fort Washington, PA, individuals can feel great knowing they have options when it comes to minimizing the signs of aging. Below, board-certified dermatologists Dr. Aradhna Saxena and Dr. David Kasper discuss the different types of wrinkle fillers they offer, including their uses and benefits.

Who can benefit from dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a fantastic solution for men and women in the Greater Philadelphia, PA, area who would like to address, tear troughs, smile and frown lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Fillers are designed to increase the volume in your lips, cheeks, tear troughs, and hands. Another significant advantage of fillers is their ability to reduce the appearance of scars while improving the texture of the skin. When injected under the surface, the filler fills the atrophic area, temporarily reversing the depression.

During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Saxena will review your medical history and any medications or supplements you may be taking. You may also be asked to form certain facial expressions like smiling or frowning in order to customize a treatment plan for your fillers.

All of our facial filler options are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the safe and effective treatment of facial lines, wrinkles, and contours.
