The Softform implant is a persistent yet removable facial implant for the treatment of deep facial furrows or creases such as nasolabial folds (creases between the nose and corners of the mouth), deep frown lines, and definition of the border surrounding the lips. The facial implant will help provide substantial correction of the furrow or crease.

The Softform implant helps to eliminate deep facial creases and furrows by providing structure and support underneath the skin. The SoftForm facial implant helps to reduce the depth of the crease or furrow by raising it to the level of the surrounding skin.

Treatment with Softform implant consists of a simple in-office procedure done under a local anesthetic. The implant is inserted below the surface of the skin through two small incisions. The procedure generally takes less than one-half hour, but will vary depending on the number of implants used.
