Aging skin can be a major source of annoyance for aging people. If you still feel young, but your skin displays signs of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and less facial volume, you may suffer from feelings of embarrassment or lowered self-esteem.
Turning to surgery is the right choice for many people, while others would like to avoid surgical methods they view as too risky or requiring too much downtime. Fortunately, some relatively new methods have come to market that can help you turn back the clock without the need for surgical intervention. Dermal fillers are at the top of this list of treatments.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers have become an increasingly popular choice for those seeking facial rejuvenation, as they offer a means of minimizing lines, wrinkles and lost facial volume in a safe, minimally-invasive manner.
Although there are various dermal fillers available with different ingredients, the process is very similar. A special gel containing an active ingredient is injected into the target area. Dermal fillers, as their name suggests, help to fill in areas that have become wrinkled or need filling in. There are different types of dermal fillers available, and we will help you determine which one is right for you during a consultation at our office.
A Look at Hyaluronic Acid
A popular choice for a dermal filler ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance that is produced by your body. As you age, you produce less of it, and it begins breaking down more quickly.
After being injected with a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, your face will begin filling in. Your skin will immediately begin looking plumper and more moisturized. This will smooth out your skin and minimize any fine lines and wrinkles.
Although the results of most treatments with dermal fillers are immediate and long-lasting, they are not permanent. You will need to return to our office for follow-up treatments to ensure your results will remain.
