Three layers comprise normal skin: the epidermis or outer layer, the dermis or middle layer, and the innermost layer of fat. The major component of the dermis is collagen. As we age, the normal volume and production of collagen decrease. The reduced volume and the effects of gravity contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are compounds that are injected directly into the dermis to restore volume and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Currently, Semler Dermatology offers the Restylane® line.
Both brands smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, smooths the lines around the mouth, and adds lift and volume to the cheeks. You can even talk to your dermatologist about hand rejuvenation and lip enhancement.
With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last from six months up to a year.
