The premature development of facial lines and wrinkles is often due to facial volume loss, which is itself caused by a deficiency in naturally-occurring substances that decline with age. A number of non-surgical face-lift techniques have been developed that rival the traditional face-lift. Dermal fillers offer you a safe and effective way of correcting fine lines and wrinkles to help you appear more youthful and vibrant.
What are Dermal Fillers?
A dermal filler is a type of injectable substance that can either replace substances that you have lost through getting older or help you appear more youthful through the injection of a synthetic material.
Dermal fillers offer a less expensive alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery for those who do not require such a drastic treatment. If you are only dealing with light to moderate wrinkles and skin laxity, a dermal filler treatment can help bridge the gap.
Most dermal fillers offer long-lasting results that can vary, depending upon the exact type of product used. Generally, dermal fillers provide results that last for many months to a year or more. After the injected materials are metabolized by your body, you will require touch-up treatments to maintain your increased skin thickness.
What Types of Dermal Fillers are There?
Different substances can be used as active ingredients in dermal fillers, including hyaluronic acid. The type that will work best for you depends upon your own unique medical history, age, genetics, and current skin condition.
Hyaluronic acid makes an excellent dermal filler when you require both increased skin volume and hydration. This naturally-occurring substance tends to become deficient in older people. Since its role in your skin is to enhance skin thickness and moisture, its deficiency leads to skin that becomes thinner and drier, making it more susceptible to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
You should see immediate results after this type of non-surgical facelift treatment. Your skin will begin soaking up moisture like a sponge, and the effect will continue to build in the weeks and months after your treatment.
