Are you looking to reinvigorate the appearance of your skin without surgical procedures? If so, dermal fillers may be a good option for you. There is a reason why this treatment is increasing in popularity. It is because it is safe and is not as expensive as surgery. This treatment lets you hold onto your youthful vitality.
What is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler is designed to fill in the soft tissue underneath your skin. Fillers can be natural or can use synthetic materials. The variety you choose will determine how your facial features are changed. Different variations are created to affect wrinkling, skin sagging, and other issues that are associated with aging. Fillers are great for fixing creases and facial wrinkles, adding volume to your lips, and enhancing your facial contours.
The treatment is straightforward and administered on an outpatient basis. The number of injections you get and the depth of the injections are going to vary depending on what you are looking to address. What is great about this treatment is that there is no downtime. You should be able to immediately go back to your regular activities. Your doctor may recommend that you stay away from arduous activities for a couple of days after the treatment, but normal activities will be okay right after the treatment.
What to Consider Before Treatment
Prior to selecting a treatment, you should have clear in mind the results that you want to achieve. This will allow you to have a frank conversation with the doctor who is going to perform your treatment. The doctor will be able to tell you exactly what you should expect from each option.
The most popular dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid as its base. Hyaluronic acid is something that is naturally found in the body. It’s what your body uses for volume, hydration, lubrication, and skin elasticity. Unfortunately, as you get older, your body starts to produce less hyaluronic acid, which leads to an increase in wrinkles. Dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid are biocompatible with your skin. As the filler is injected into the area where there is a wrinkle or a loss of facial volume, that defect becomes smoothed out and eventually disappears.
Fillers can help your skin stay hydrated. This is because hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules to itself. So a small amount of hyaluronic acid is able to moisturize and hydrate your skin, giving you that healthier and vibrant look that you want.
If you are looking for a way to make your wrinkles disappear, dermal fillers could be the key for you. They cost less than a traditional facelift. They are not going to produce as dramatic of an effect, but they will give your face and your skin a natural boost.
