At Facial Aesthetics, our team has been voted one of the best in Denver by readers of 5280 magazine. We are dedicated to helping our patients reclaim smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Read on to learn more about what fillers are, how they work, and the options that our team offers.

What are Fillers?

Fillers are injectable treatments that are usually made of a gel-like substance. They can reduce the appearance of facial lines and restore volume and fullness to your face.

More than 1 million people in the United States get fillers every year. If you’re looking for facial rejuvenation but don’t want to deal with the anesthesia, incisions, and sutures that accompany a facelift, fillers can be an excellent alternative.

What Can Fillers Do?

Fillers can treat many of the visible signs of aging that appear on your face, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Circles under the eyes
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Laugh lines
  • Loss of lip volume
  • Jowl reduction
  • Jawline contouring

How Do Fillers Work?

Two compounds naturally occur in your body that affect how elastic, voluminous, and wrinkled your skin appears:

  • Collagen: Collagen is one of the most plentiful proteins in your body. It is essential to helping your skin maintain its elasticity and keeping it wrinkle-free. If you stretch a bit of your skin and watch it snap back into place, that's collagen in action. The protein also helps your skin heal from wounds and injuries.
     
  • Hyaluronic acid: This is a clear, gelatinous substance that holds water to help keep your skin voluminous and hydrated. A molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold a thousand times its weight in water. It continually moisturizes your skin throughout the day.

As you age, your body’s production of collagen and hyaluronic acid declines. Starting in your mid-20s, you produce about 1 percent less per year of each substance. This manufacturing never naturally picks back up again. This decline in the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid is one of the biggest reasons why people’s faces start to show signs of aging. Other factors, such as exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays and smoking, also degrade collagen and hyaluronic acid.

Several fillers that we offer at Facial Aesthetics are made of hyaluronic acid. They’re also designed to stimulate the production of collagen in the treatment areas. By infusing your skin with these substances, fillers allow collagen and hyaluronic acid to do their job and heal your skin of the visible signs of aging.
