Soft Tissue Fillers

These fillers cause a more youthful appearance and smoother skin, with maximum safety. Soft tissue fillers are a flexible substance that is injected into the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We can utilize an assortment of soft tissue fillers, including human and bovine collagen, hyaluronic acid (Restylane® Juvederm, Radiesse, one’s own fat (autologous fat), and donor tissue. Soft tissue fillers do not involve major surgery and thus are generally cost effective.

What can soft tissue fillers do?

As the underlying collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin fibers begin to deteriorate, the volume in your face is lost due to the fat stores decreasing. This is what occurs during the aging process. Soft tissue fillers are special in that they can fill and contour those aging characteristics.

How do soft tissue fillers work?

A filler substance is injected under the surface of your skin, correcting a line or wrinkle by temporarily plumping and smoothing out the skin depression. Often fillers work by actually replacing natural parts of the skin: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Some fillers can even stimulate production of collagen.
