The new generation of injectable fillers has revitalized the plastic surgery industry. According to Forbes Magazine, "Twenty years ago, if you wanted to get rid of wrinkly, sagging skin, there was basically one way to do it--going under the knife for a face-lift. But today, a range of dermal fillers can be injected into those crow's feet, marionette lines, thinning lips and furrows between the brows, taking years off the face--and all can be done during your lunch hour, with no invasive surgery and little recovery time.

Volume Loss: The Greatest Contributor to Facial Aging
The primary effect of aging is the loss of facial volume and secondary sagging to specific areas of the face. This is due to the loss of elasticity related to gradual loss of elastin fibers in the deep layer of skin (dermis) that occurs with the aging process. Other factors include changes to bone, decreased facial fat and decreased muscle mass. The loss of elasticity coupled with the repeated action of the muscles of facial expression contribute to wrinkle formation and volume loss. Skin loses its ability to recoil after repeated contraction of muscles of facial expression. The role of gravity has been shown to have a less substantial role in wrinkle formation. These areas include the midface, cheek bones, jaw, brow and below the eyes.
The Filler Facelift
The Natural Facelift Option
Injectable facial fillers are cutting edge treatments which can help keep skin looking younger by restoring lost volume and filling deeper lines and furrows. They can even be used to perform a filler facelift providing comprehensive facial rejuvenation. These treatments typically involve little to no downtime, can be performed quickly and easily in the office setting, and are an excellent option for individuals who opt for a less invasive procedure. They can revitalize areas of the that face that show the most dramatic effects of aging. The correction of facial volume loss with facial filling agents can restore a youthful appearance to patients who are approximately between 35 and 55 years of age and can allow older patients to look healthy and attractive for whatever their age, and within age-appropriate parameters. Such correction has many benefits beyond cosmetic improvements. Facial volume loss can give the appearance of aging out of synch with chronology, and when severe, may give the impression of illness and physical disability that may have adverse effects with social, psychological, and economic implications.
