Aging can cause a number of changes in the skin, including wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume, and sagging.
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable filler that can address these signs of aging by adding volume to the skin and smoothing out wrinkles and lines.
Keep reading and find out how you can achieve younger-looking skin with dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that can restore lost volume and fullness, while also helping to lessen the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. The most widely used FDA-approved fillers have hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that reduces the risks of rejection or allergic reactions.
These fillers are typically injected into the following areas:
They can also be utilized as a follow-up procedure after a facial thread lift to further refine certain problem areas.
That being said, dermal fillers don’t offer the same degree of facial rejuvenation as a facelift, but you can achieve lasting results by having follow up treatments.
What Are the Different Types of Dermal Fillers Available?
- There are various types of dermal fillers available and each one offers unique benefits. Some of the most popular types of dermal fillers include:
- 1. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, which are comprised of a modified form of HA that results in natural-looking and long-lasting volume.
- 2. Poly-L-lactic acid fillers, which contain a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production to treat deep lines, wrinkles, and folds for a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Here are just some of the things that dermal fillers can do for you that will surely make you feel good:
1.Plump lips, add volume to cheeks, and improve the appearance of acne scars.
2.Smooth wrinkles and folds and fill in under-eye hollows or tear troughs.
When performed by a qualified, skilled injector, the treatment itself is quick, generally painless, and perfectly safe.
4.Because hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally occurs within the human body, there’s a much lower risk of side effects or rejection with HA-based fillers.
And if you’re unhappy with the results, your injector can use hyaluronidase, an enzyme that dissolves HA, to safely and quickly reverse them.
5.You will notice an immediate improvement, and there is usually no downtime after the treatment. Some patients may experience some bruising and swelling, but these tend to subside within a few days.
Dermal fillers require virtually no downtime, so you can resume your usual activities following the procedure. Minor swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection sites are to be expected, but these side effects are temporary and normally subside within a few days. (Though you should consult your provider if side effects last for more than a week.)
