Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Revanesse Versa® are hyaluronic acid gels made from synthetic materials that can be used to restore volume and youth to your face. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance naturally found in the tissues of our bodies. Hyaluronic acid functions to hydrate and lubricate the tissues in our bodies and is necessary for proper cell function. As we age, decreased function of the HA in our skin results in dryness, thinness and looseness of our face. When combined with gravity and age related loss of collagen and elastin, we start to look old and tired.
Dermal fillers attract the water moisture we lose with aging and hydrates the skin to plump and firm the skin while helping to stimulate new collagen growth. The added volume and hydration you receive from dermal fillers restores the fullness we all once had in our youth, recovering what gravity and time have taken away. In general, the results of dermal fillers can last for about six to nine months, depending on the type of filler, your muscle anatomy and metabolism.
