Can dermal fillers help me?
As time goes by, skin becomes lax. This is a natural part of aging skin but it's not what many perceive as beautiful. Symmetrical, youthful and smooth skin are promoted everyday. So, where does that leave you? Easy. At The Fountain Clinic, located in Rocky River, OH, doctors provide patients with dermal fillers to regain and rejuvenate that youthful look.
What are injectable dermal fillers?
For several years collagen was the first and only FDA approved filler consisting of highly purified bovine, a dermal tissue extracted from cow.
A new filler was later developed that had only one percent rejection rate and contained human collagen. There was simultaneously a popular silicone filler removed from the market when silicone was banned from being used in breast implants.
Today, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, a naturally occurring substance that contributes to cell proliferation, are popular. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are made from bacterial proteins and don't require skin testing because they're already found in the body. The transparent gel is injected into facial tissue to eliminate wrinkles and smoothen folds.
Where are dermal fillers injected to improve?
- Nasal labial folds
- Marionette lines

What are other dermal fillers used in the USA?
Restylane received FDA approval in 2003, as well as other cosmetic fillers such as Perlane, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma
You'll find calcium-based fillers instead of hyaluronic acid in markets these days, just ask your Rocky River doctor. These new dermal fillers include Radiance/Radiesse, which is FDA approved and said to last up to 18 months.
Technological advancements have proven effective in creating safer products to rejuvenate your skin. If you have any questions about cosmetic fillers, don't hesitate to call your doctor at The Fountain Clinic in Rocky River, OH.
