As we age, the natural facial volume is lost due to degradation of healthy skin whereby we lose the youthful fullness and volume in our face. The result is a deflated appearance with lines, wrinkles & skin laxity which makes us look tired.

- 1. What types of Dermal Fillers are used at Dermafina
- 2. What is Hyaluronic Acid
Dermal fillers are an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid a substance naturally found in the body that attracts and binds water molecules to add volume. What’s interesting about HA is that it’s a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. When injected into the face, results are instant, adding volume to restore skin contours for a more youthful appearance.
- 3. What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is a injectable poly-L-lactic acid
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers,Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.1-3 Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
Fillers are liquid or gel substances, like hyaluronic acid or bovine or porcine collagen, that diminish lines by pushing up the dermis space beneath wrinkles and creases. Results appear immediately and can last up to several months.
Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.*
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra Aesthetic is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.1-3 As the Sculptra Aesthetic PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production. Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume4 and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.
