At the age of 30, your skin begins to change, your face begins to show signs of aging and all those days spent tanning in your 20’s start to catch up to you. This is usually around the age people start considering injectables and fillers to rejuvenate their skin.
Over 2 million people received injectable dermal fillers just last year according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Injectables and fillers are used to lessen the appearance of facial creases, wrinkles, loss of skin tone, vascular damage, changes in pigmentation and acne scarring. They are also used to plump up lips and shallow areas of your face.
Common Types of Fillers
Here are the most common dermal fillers along with their brand names to restore volume and combat facial lines, tear troughs and wrinkles.
- Collagen – Cosmoderm, Cosmoplast, Cymetra, Evolence, Zyderm, Zyplast
