These days, people expect the very best when it comes to anti-aging treatments and procedures. This is a very exciting time of innovations in the cosmetic medical field, with many treatments coming online to help you add facial volume and smoothness to your skin so that you look like a more youthful, energetic person. One such treatment is dermal fillers.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Treatment with dermal fillers offers a safe and effective way to significantly increase your facial volume and smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure involves the injection of a gel containing certain substances like hyaluronic acid.
The results are very much dependent upon the product and brand that you are injected with. Generally, dermal fillers offer results that last from several months to a year or more. At a certain point, the filler will need to be re-applied in order to maintain your results.
Are Dermal Fillers Like BOTOX®?
No. Dermal fillers and BOTOX® contain different ingredients and work very differently. BOTOX® is an injectable substance that relaxes the facial muscles that cause facial wrinkles. Dermal fillers work by adding facial volume and lifting up the skin to minimize lines and wrinkles.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid-Based Dermal Fillers
You may be familiar with hyaluronic acid as a common ingredient in many skin care products. It can also be directly injected to enhance facial volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is produced by your own body in abundance during your youth. When you get older, your body produces less of it and your skin begins to thin and form wrinkles.
Since hyaluronic acid is able to attract and bind water molecules, it helps lead to the formation of thicker skin that is more hydrated. When we inject your face with a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, we are correcting this age-related deficiency to help reverse the process. The result is thicker, smoother skin and fewer wrinkles.
