Have you ever noticed that fine lines and wrinkles become more apparent as you get older? This happens mainly due to volume loss in the elasticity of your skin during the aging process. As you age, this volume loss makes any lines and wrinkles more apparent. What if you’re not ready for that? The good news is there is a solution for you! Dermal fillers are a treatment option that will smooth out the wrinkles and rejuvenates the skin for a youthful look.
WHAT ARE FILLERS?
Fillers are substances injected into the skin that resemble gel. They are composed of synthetic and natural compounds, including hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found in several over-the-counter products to add moisture and elasticity back into the skin. Fillers do the same thing with more dramatic results. As a treatment to enhance volume into the skin, fillers are a safe and effective option.
WHAT DO FILLERS TREAT?
Wrinkles and fine lines are some of the more popular reasons you might seek fillers. However, these are not the only things that fillers treat. Here are some of the ways fillers can benefit you:
- Crow’s feet and frown lines
- Lift and volumize cheeks
- Lip plumping
- Fill in acne scars
One of the benefits of fillers is that they are a great alternative to surgery and other more invasive options. Since different compounds treat specific conditions, it’s important to know what you want to treat ahead of time.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before undergoing filler injections, you will have a consultation to discuss your goals and any potential medical conditions that might prevent you from moving forward. The actual treatment requires no surgery with results seen after just one office visit. Your provider will apply a numbing agent before injecting the filler, and you should see results right away. After the treatment, you can go about the rest of your day without too much pain or worrying about downtime after surgery.
Depending on the type of filler you use and what you want to treat, the results are long-lasting. For hyaluronic acid fillers, you can expect that the results last about one year. Other filler compounds are created to last several years or even indefinitely, which can be a wonderful benefit if you want an almost permanent treatment option. Dermal fillers provide a non-surgical option to rejuvenate and add volume back into the skin that loses elasticity as we age.
If you want a treatment option that targets your fine lines, wrinkles, and other areas like your lips and hands, fillers are an excellent choice.
