Juvederm Volbella Is the first and only FDA-approved filler proven to increase and soften the appearance of vertical lines up to 1 year. A filler is administered via injection with a thin needle. The area of injection depends on the type of filler. Some are administered deep beneath the layers of tissue, while others are placed closer to the surface.
As for what the filler is made of, it varies by type. Most of the products used at Facial Aesthetics contain hyaluronic acid. Fillers made from HA mimic the HA found naturally in your skin, connective tissue and cartilage. Part of what makes this material so effective is that it binds with water molecules, thereby providing hydrated, plump, smooth skin. It also replaces volume beneath the skin, which lessens as your skin ages. Age is associated with less subcutaneous fat, which makes it easier to see the creases of the deflated skin. Dermal fillers soften these lines and other types of creases on your face by plumping up the subcutaneous volume.
