If you have reached a certain age, you are likely noticing unwelcome skin changes, particularly on your face. Losing facial volume is a very common sign of aging that can lead to feelings of lower self-esteem and even anxiety and depression for some people. Besides the loss of facial volume itself, the problem can also lead to the development of lines and wrinkles on the face. A face with less volume is not as plump, and this results in a more wrinkled facial appearance, leaving you looking older than you may actually feel. If this sounds like your situation, consider the many benefits of dermal fillers.
What are Dermal Fillers?
One reason that a growing number of women and men are turning to treatment with dermal fillers is that this method offers great results without the need to resort to cosmetic surgery. You can expect to resume your daily activities immediately after your treatment, in most cases, and any side effects should be mild and short-lasting.
Although various substances can be used for the active ingredient, dermal fillers have some things in common. They are all injectable gels that restore lost facial volume by plumping the skin. Although they offer significant and noticeable results, dermal fillers are temporary in nature. You must return to our office as necessary to maintain your results.
A Look at Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is somewhat similar to collagen in its effects, but it plays a different role in the body. This important substance is found throughout your body and concentrated in soft tissues like your skin. It has the ability to attract and hold many times its own weight in water, making it an ideal ingredient for dermal fillers.
Like collagen, as you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid. The result is a face that has lost volume and gained wrinkles. We can help reverse this process by injecting your face with a hyaluronic acid-based gel, leading to immediate skin plumping results that look and feel natural.
