Dermal Fillers vs. Midface Lifters


Dermal fillers and midface lifters are injectable products that are composed of a naturally occurring substance the body produces, hyaluronic acid (HA).  While fillers are injected just under the skin, lifters are injected deeper, adjacent to bone.


Fillers are perfect for the treatment of lines, wrinkles and crevices of the lower face.

Lifters are injected along the cheek bone and provide a lift effect for lower face, thereby reducing the “sagging” of skin along the mouth, chin, and jowls.

These products are inert (non reactive with body tissue).

Use of these products by an experienced injector can reverse signs of aging without having surgery.  Overall, these products are amazing and should be employed as appropriate to prevent signs of aging.

Remember, it is best to start a skin care program in your 30s and 40s.  In modern times, professional skin care can truly keep your skin youthful.  As with other aspects of medicine, prevention is key.
