Dermal and Soft Tissue Fillers Q & A
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable, colorless gels to improve skin lines, creases, and wrinkles. Many of the best know fillers such a Juvederm are made of hyaluronic acid gel, that is a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps maintain skin volume and hydration.
What are Soft Tissue Fillers?
Soft tissue fillers are fillers used to treat areas of facial volume loss. Common soft tissue Fillers include:
- Voluma XC: injectable filler to restore areas of depression and volume loss of the cheeks.
- Fat Grafting: Injectable fat to any facial area of soft tissue depression and fat loss.
What types of fillers does a plastic surgeon use?
Dr. Williams uses a variety of dermal fillers and soft tissue filler techniques.:
- Volbella (Newly made for Lip Augmentation)
- Juvederm Ultra XC
- Nano Fat grafting
Nano Fat grafting is the newest concept in dermal fillers. Nano Fat injects regenerative cells such as stem cell to stimulate and repair aging skin. Nano Fat is made by filtering fat so that the fat cells are removed, but the regenerative cell is retained.
