Similar to the fact that the subway doors are going to close before you get on the train at least once in your life, you’re also going to get wrinkles and lose facial volume as you get older. These things are an inevitable part of life for those of us living and working in New York City. While you might not be able to control the trains, at least you can fight back against the inescapable signs of aging. 

The exceptional team of general and cosmetic dermatologists at Manhattan Dermatology, conveniently located in Murray Hill and Midtown East, offers a comprehensive selection of dermal fillers to plump, firm, and smooth all the evidence of volume loss and facial wrinkles, including your lips. Discover how dermal fillers can restore lost volume to your face and help you look as young as you feel. 

Why you lose facial volume as you age

As if the lines and wrinkles from years of making the same facial expressions over and over again weren’t bad enough, as you get older, your skin loses volume, too. When you’re young, the fatty tissue in your face is evenly distributed so your cheeks look round and supple, and the area around your mouth and nose stays firm. With age, the fatty tissue naturally loses volume, clumps up, and shifts downward.

As your body produces less and less hyaluronic acid with each passing year, your skin loses volume. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance that retains moisture and keeps your skin naturally hydrated and plumped up in all the right places. It’s also found as lubrication in your joints. 

You also produce less collagen and elastin as you get older, and these elements are the internal support structure of young, healthy skin. As hyaluronic acid and collagen production decreases, and gravity plays a role in pulling everything downward, your cheeks may appear sunken, skin may sag around your jawline, and you see more noticeable nasolabial folds — the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. 

Dermal fillers are the antidote for volume loss

At Manhattan Dermatology, we offer the safest, most effective dermal fillers available, including:

Each of these injectables works in a slightly different way to restore volume to different areas of your face, from moderate to severe, by supplementing hyaluronic acid or stimulating collagen production. 

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers

Juvéderm, Belotero Balance, and Restylane contain hyaluronic acid to help restore volume beneath the surface of the skin in your cheeks, lips, and around your nose and mouth. When your doctor injects these dermal fillers into the areas of your face that have begun to sink or shift downward, the hyaluronic acid instantly gives your skin the lift it once had when you were younger. 

When it comes to age-related volume loss, there’s no need for surgery, because these injectable gels plump up your skin so your face appears more youthful again. As volume is restored, lines and wrinkles also appear smoother and less noticeable. Depending on which areas of your face you treat, the results are long-lasting — up to two years!

Collagen stimulating dermal fillers

Sculptra Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen, which also helps restore facial volume and smooth out lines and wrinkles around your nose, mouth, and chin. Sculptra may also help stimulate your body’s own collagen production to restore your skin’s inner support structure for long-lasting results. 

Want fuller cheeks again? Plumper, smoother lips? Dermal fillers may be your ideal solution. At Manhattan Dermatology, we customize your anti-aging treatment plan based on your individual needs and aesthetic goals, so you get the best results possible. 

Our doctors recommend the type of fillers that can enhance your facial features so you can grow older with renewed confidence.
