Cosmetic procedures are surging in popularity due largely to recent advancements in the field, as well as increased public acceptance of sensible procedures that offer significant results. Many people are unsatisfied with the appearance of their skin because of the aging process, skin discoloration or sun damage.
Many people would like to have skin that is more youthful, hydrated and smooth, but they still wish to avoid surgical procedures that they perceive as being too risky. For these people, non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers are providing a safe and effective alternative.
One of the chief skin complaints of older people is lost facial volume. This can occur due to the loss of sub-surface fat and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. These unwelcome changes, while completely natural, can be minimized using non-invasive methods such as treatment with dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injections of various substances into the skin that promote more youthful skin and help restore lost facial volume. The most popular dermal fillers contain active ingredients like collagen and hyaluronic acid. Once these substances are injected below the skin’s surface, they go to work restoring lost facial volume, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smoothing out facial contours.
Dermal fillers can make the difference between someone looking haggard and tired and someone who appears much more youthful and energetic. The positive impacts range from feelings of increased self-esteem to more success in relationships and work.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are some of the main components of the skin. They provide a framework and support structure for skin cells, encouraging the development of blood vessels that carry nutrients to our skin cells and carry away waste materials that would otherwise damage healthy cells.
As we get older, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid, leading to skin that begins to sag and lose volume. By injecting dermal fillers under the skin, we are restoring normal levels of fullness where it is needed the most. The result is thicker skin that is more youthful, supple and displays fewer fines lines and wrinkles.
Treatment with dermal fillers has been proven to be safe, effective and fast. The procedure is performed without the need for general anesthesia. By supplementing our declining levels of facial volume, we are promoting more youthful, healthy, hydrated skin. The results are immediate and long-lasting. Follow-up treatments will be required several months after to maintain the results.
