No matter how much you diet or exercise, Father Time is undefeated. By the time most of us have reached our late 30s or early 40s, the signs of facial aging have made their unmistakable appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles, hollows under the eyes and cheeks, and uneven pigmentation can make you look older than you actually feel. The good news is that these common signs of facial skin aging can be treated without surgery using a minimally-invasive treatment technique called dermal fillers to help restore your youth.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable products that allow us to reverse the signs of facial aging by increasing skin volume or hydration. Some common ingredients found in fillers are collagen and hyaluronic acid. Fillers differ from other injectable treatments such as Botox® because they actually fill in the areas that have lost volume or developed wrinkles. Botox® is a treatment that affects the muscles that move to create wrinkles. In other words, dermal fillers are great for static wrinkles while Botox® works best on dynamic wrinkles. Which treatment can benefit you the most will be discussed at your consultation with our professionals.
How Can They Benefit Me?
Some of the fillers we offer contain a substance called hyaluronic acid. This substance is found in large amounts in youthful skin but declines in both quantity and quality with age. By injecting you with a hyaluronic acid filler, we are helping to restore your hyaluronic acid levels and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These fillers can be injected into the cheeks, jaw, temples, and lips to restore your youthful appearance.
Results of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers offer excellent anti-aging results without the need for surgery and its associated complications and lengthy downtime. Most patients obtain results that last for up to a year or longer, depending upon the product. It is important to realize that fillers will eventually be fully absorbed by your body, and you will require additional injections at that time if you wish to maintain your results. Your unique treatment plan can be developed when you visit us for the first time.
