Dermal fillers are a nice alternative to more invasive forms of anti-aging treatments for those who have light to moderate wrinkles or other signs of facial aging. The sheer number of products available can be confusing to some patients. But it is not that difficult to narrow down your treatment choices when considering this popular skin rejuvenation procedure.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
A dermal filler is an injectable gel that has an active ingredient mixed within it to fill in lines and wrinkles by enhancing facial volume or stimulating your own body’s production of collagen. Once injected into your skin, fillers offer long-lasting results of up to a year or more, depending upon the formulation of the product that is injected.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid may be familiar to you as a popular ingredient found in many topical skin care products to increase moisture and prevent wrinkles. In addition to making an excellent topical, hyaluronic acid makes a very effective wrinkle reducer when used as an ingredient in a dermal filler.
When you are young, your body produces sufficient amounts of hyaluronic acid to attract moisture into your skin and maintain appropriate skin thickness. The age-related loss of this important substance leads to skin that grows gradually thinner and more susceptible to wrinkle development. A hyaluronic acid filler injection can replace what has been lost due to aging and reverse the thinning and drying of your skin.
Results of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers generally offer excellent results that are long-lasting. However, your skin will continue to age normally both before and after your treatment. So the product will need to be replaced periodically in the form of follow-up injections. Depending on your specific skin goals our team of experts will help you determine which dermal filler is the right option for you.
