How do Soft Tissue Fillers work?

Soft tissue fillers have become a staple in many anti-aging regimens. Fillers provide the layer of moisture needed to revitalize the skin. They not only reduce the signs of age, but they also promote collagen growth to make your skin look younger and fresher. But how exactly do soft tissue fillers work?

What are soft tissue fillers?
Soft tissue fillers also known as injectable fillers or dermal fillers,are products that are injected into the skin to plump the skin tissue and fill in folds, lines,creases, and wrinkles. They also add volume to areas such as the cheeks and lips.

How do soft tissue fillers work?
There are various types of fillers, but those derived from hyaluronic acid are among the most common. These include Restylane, Juvederm, and Volbella. When these soft tissue fillers are injected into the wrinkles and other areas of the face, they immediately fill in the lines by increasing the tissue layers. Hyaluronic acid fillers absorb water from the environment, and this also creates a plumping effect.

There are also synthetic fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse that work by stimulating the production of your body’s collagen. The full effects can be seen gradually, as more collagen is produced over time.

Depending on the type of fillers used, the results can last between 6 to 18 months.

If you are thinking about getting soft tissue fillers, be sure to choose a skilled and experienced injector if you want to get the best results.
