Many people are finding that dermal fillers offer a great alternative to some types of cosmetic surgery when they are dealing with light to moderate wrinkles. Although traditional cosmetic surgery is as effective as it ever was, many patients do not really need such a dramatic type of treatment when they are only dealing with minor signs of aging or hollow areas on their face. Fillers also offer the advantage of fewer complications, less expense, and far less downtime.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances such as hyaluronic acid that helps to restore facial volume. They offer long-lasting results without any need for hospitalization or downtime. Since no surgical invasion is involved, a convenient treatment with fillers allows you to return to your work or daily activities immediately after your treatment.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers make a great choice for those who are dealing with both wrinkles and dry skin. That’s because hyaluronic acid is able to draw moisture into your skin at an amazing rate, leading to a volumizing effect. Hyaluronic acid is produced by your own body in abundance when you are young. Getting older leads to a loss of hyaluronic acid production, but we can rectify this deficiency using a hyaluronic acid dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm.
Dermal Fillers Results
Dermal fillers offer excellent anti-wrinkle results that are long-lasting, but they do not last forever. Sometimes the effects of this skin remedy can fade away after multiple months, depending upon what type of filler is used. Others offer longer-lasting results as long as one year or more.
It is important to keep in mind that your skin will continue to age normally after your treatment. The filler ingredients will also be metabolized by your body eventually, and you will need touch-ups at that time if you wish to maintain your results.
