Are you getting older? If so, you have likely noticed a reduction in facial volume. This change can lead to other skin changes like the development of lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, treatment with dermal fillers can help. This non-surgical technique can help restore lost facial volume in a very natural way.
What are Dermal Fillers?
As the name suggests, dermal fillers help fill in areas of the skin that have lost volume. Skin can lose volume because of things like aging, poor dietary habits, or extreme weight loss. Dermal fillers contain differing ingredients, but they all work basically the same. The ingredients are injected in gel form to promote an increase in facial volume. Once restored, normal facial volume helps smooth away fine lines and wrinkles and fill in hollowed-out areas to make you appear more youthful and vibrant.
A Look at Hyaluronic Acid
One great thing about dermal fillers is that they typically contain substances that are already naturally present in the body. As such, there is an extremely low chance of an allergic reaction. One of the main components of healthy, youthful skin, hyaluronic acid can be added into an injectable gel to restore facial volume.
For all dermal fillers, you will eventually need to return to our office for touch-up treatments to replace the product that will be gradually broken down by your body. This will help to ensure that you maintain your impressive yet subtle results.
To better understand the importance of hyaluronic acid, picture a dry creek bed. When it was full of water, it was also full of life. Now that the water has run off, the soil underneath becomes dry and cracked. This is what hyaluronic acid depletion looks like. Hyaluronic acid attracts and holds many times its own weight in water molecules. When you are young, you have ample amounts of it. As you age, your body produces less of the substance. Your skin begins drying out and cracking, leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles.
By injecting your skin with hyaluronic acid-based gel, we can help reverse this process, restoring your skin’s moisture and radiance. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away as your skin begins absorbing moisture once again and increasing in volume.
