Types of Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers can help to rejuvenate, smooth, lift, contour, firm, and enhance your features. This type of dermal filler can be used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds in patients 22 years of age or older.

Knox Dermatology also offers an FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler that can be used for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation in patients 22 years of age or older.

HA attracts moisture, and less HA means less moisture, which can contribute to sagging and drooping skin.

Where you can see wrinkles:

  • Cheeks – Loss of collagen, thinning of underlying fat, and decreasing bone volume can lead to a reduction of volume in the cheeks, giving a sunken appearance.
  • Nasolabial Folds (Laugh Lines) – Through volume loss and aging over time, the skin on our cheeks may drape over to become nasolabial folds, creating a tired-looking face with wrinkles between the nose and mouth.
  • Lips – As we age, our lips may lose shape and there can be an increase in small vertical lines around the mouth, while the corners sag (marionette lines).
