What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers come in a variety of different materials. At Krauss Dermatology, we use hyaluronic acid fillers due to their effectiveness and safety. The skin uses hyaluronic acid to attract and lock in moisture, so the body recognizes and does not react to this material. When injected, dermal fillers add volume, which can lift the facial features or smooth out lines and wrinkles. Injections with HA fillers can stimulate collagen production over time, too – making it an easy treatment to keep up and maintain. And to make us feel even more confident, hyaluronic fillers are fully dissolvable. Small areas or all of the filler can be removed with a safe injection.
We offer three families of dermal fillers, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and RHA®. While all contain hyaluronic acid, they also have unique properties.
Krauss Dermatology has been chosen as one of only a few practices in the country to offer RHA®, a popular European brand of dermal filler. The hyaluronic acid formula in RHA® more closely mimics the body’s natural hyaluronic acid and works very well in mobile locations such as the area around the mouth.
With popular formulas including Voluma, Ultra and Ultra Plus that target everything from fuller cheeks to line and wrinkle removal, Juvederm® remains a popular choice for many people.
The Restylane® family of fillers contains formulas that address many types of lines, wrinkles, and volume enhancement, as well as the lip filler Restylane® Kysse.
