Getting Started with Dermal Fillers

When it comes to anti-aging treatments, dermal fillers are one of the best. This convenient treatment offers excellent anti-wrinkle results without the need for any real downtime. If you are dealing with fine lines and wrinkles that make you look older than your actual age, you owe it to yourself to learn more about this amazing skin rejuvenation treatment.

Causes of Facial Aging

One of the primary causes of facial aging is the gradual loss of skin volume. Like a balloon slowly deflating, the loss of volume in your skin will eventually result in the formation of the folds and creases known as wrinkles.

The age-related breakdown of collagen and elastin tends to lead to a reduction in facial volume and the development of lines and wrinkles. Collagen adds bulk and structure to your skin, while elastin helps it become more elastic.

Hyaluronic acid is another naturally-occurring substance that tends to break down more readily in older individuals. Its role in the skin is to attract and bind moisture. Think of it as an internal moisturizer that also plumps and adds volume to your skin.

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers are able to restore your proper hyaluronic acid levels via skillful injection. Once injected into your skin, the products will go to work to attract moisture and fill in sunken areas affected by a loss of volume.

Dermal Filler Results

It is important to keep in mind that, although fillers offer excellent results, your skin will continue to age normally. The injected products will eventually be metabolized by your body, and follow-up injections will be necessary for the maintenance of your beautiful results.

Fillers offer excellent results that can last up to a year or more, depending upon the product used. Other factors that can influence the length of your results include your age, lifestyle, and current medical condition. We can give you a better idea of the longevity of your results during your initial consultation at our office.
