The use of “dermal fillers,” which are injected into the skin to replace lost volume and soften facial lines, are skyrocketing in popularity. Chief among the injectable fillers is Juvéderm, which smoothes wrinkles and folds around the mouth. Its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring carbohydrate in the body that binds to water to create volume. Also very popular is Restylane, which is used to treat facial wrinkles and folds around the mouth and is also FDA-approved for adult lip enhancement. Radiesse, composed of calcium hydroxyl, is used to treat deeper lines (such as the ones around the mouth), and Sculptra is injected more deeply to treat hollow cheeks and the loss of facial fat.
