When we were younger and our skin had abundant collagen, the only lines and wrinkles we had were dynamic. All dynamic wrinkles, with age, will eventually lead to static wrinkles as collagen is depleted and constant motion "cracks" the skin. Dynamic Wrinkles are caused by facial expressions and repetitive facial movements. Each time we use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin, which is why we see lines form with each facial expression. As skin ages and loses its elasticity, the skin stops springing back to its line-free state, and these grooves become permanently etched on the face as fine lines and wrinkles.
There is a range of Dermal Fillers available, the type, cost and amount of fillers used will be determined by the area you wish to treat and your attending Doctor's discretion.

- Juvederm Ultra 4 is used for volumising and the correction of deeper folds and wrinkles, including enhancing volume in the cheeks and chin.
- Juvederm Ultra 2 is used for the subtle correction of medium facial lines and skin depressions. It also enhances lip contour.
