Are you an Austin resident who needs some facial skin smoothing but would like to avoid surgery? Dermal fillers provide just such a treatment option. This minimally-invasive treatment involves the delivery of skin-smoothing ingredients via injection in a fast and simple treatment.
What Causes Skin Aging?
Dermal fillers provide a very natural treatment option that usually involves the injection of a natural ingredient to rectify a deficiency, or a product that closely mimics a natural substance. One such substances is called hyaluronic acid. It has a special affinity for water and is able to draw many times its own weight in water and hold it within your skin cells. Hyaluronic acid tends to become depleted in older people and those with certain health problems.
Collagen and elastin are two important skin components that tend to break down as you grow older. Collagen’s role in your skin is to create bulk and structure, so its loss leads to skin that becomes thinner. Elastin give your skin its elasticity. A deficiency here leads to skin that does not spring back to its normal shape when stretched.
What Is RADIESSE®?
RADIESSE® is a type of dermal filler containing calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance found commonly in bones and teeth. After injection, RADIESSE® begins to immediately fill out your face and fill in wrinkles by increasing skin thickness.
What Does JUVÉDERM® Treat?
JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid. This naturally occurring substance helps to draw moisture into your skin. Its age-related depletion leads to skin that is thinner and more susceptible to wrinkle formation. Just one injection of JUVÉDERM® is all that is needed to help reverse the process that forms wrinkles. Lidocaine is also included to ensure your comfort during your treatment.
How Long Before I Notice Results?
The answer depends somewhat upon what product you were treated with, but fillers generally provide immediate results. You may also notice some additional results that accrue in the next few weeks after your treatment.
One key aspect of fillers is that they offer results that are impressive but temporary. At some point, depending upon the product, the injected gel will be absorbed by your body and touch-ups will be required.
