Lost facial volume is one of the main common signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, and creases. Just as a balloon that deflates will become less smooth and develop creases, your skin loses the ability to produce certain substances that promote skin thickness, resulting in the development of lines and wrinkles that grow into creases and folds over time. Dermal fillers could be the answer.
There is a growing trend among patients toward seeking non-surgical treatments for conditions like lost facial volume. There is still a need for conventional cosmetic facelift surgery, but more gentle techniques are often more advisable for those with less skin damage. Non-surgical techniques offer the advantage of less downtime and fewer complications.
Dermal fillers are injectables that help to increase skin thickness and fill in lines and wrinkles that can make you appear older than your actual age. These days, the most common ingredient found in these injectables is hyaluronic acid.
At some point in time, the injected materials will be metabolized by your body and require replacement to maintain your increased skin thickness. Of course, your skin will continue to age normally during this time. Dermal fillers are known for offering excellent results that are long-lasting. Many products last several months to a year or more before requiring follow-up injections.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring skin component that has the special ability to attract and retain many times its own weight in water molecules. Like a sponge inside of your skin tissue, hyaluronic acid soaks up moisture, leading to skin that is dewy and radiant.
Once injected into your skin, hyaluronic acid begins working immediately to thicken and hydrate your skin to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office, and it’s known to be quick and simple.
