There are currently a number of non-surgical ways in which facial wrinkles can be minimized or even eliminated. Certain aesthetic treatments can cause a small amount of controlled skin damage that incites increased collagen production and the rapid regeneration of skin cells. Some injectable treatments have the ability to relax the expressive muscles and release dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet. For more advanced signs of aging, however, facial fillers may be used. These are gel-like substances that are injected into the skin to immediately restore lost volume and fill in lines and wrinkles.
Why Choose Dermal Fillers?
For every type of facial wrinkling, it’s important to choose the most appropriate anti-aging solution. While injectable purified protein solutions can release the tension responsible for the development of dynamic wrinkles, these products cannot fill in loose skin or facial hollows that are the result of volume loss. Moreover, other treatments that cause controlled skin damage are only meant to resolve superficial aesthetic issues that affect the very topmost layers of the dermis. Dermal fillers, however, are perfect for plumping up loose, aging skin and for eliminating the deeper facial creases that are the result of both volume loss and a general, age-related breakdown of the skin’s structure.
The Benefits of Using Dermal Fillers
There are many benefits in using facial fillers to turn back the hands of time. When these solutions are appropriate for addressing the specific type of wrinkling that a patient is experiencing, they allow for a very fast and convenient treatment. Facial filler injections are performed in the comfort of our office. Many people are able to head right back to work as soon as their dermal filler treatments are finished.
Different Types of Fillers
Consumers now have access to a very broad range of options in dermal filler materials. Many of the most popular facial fillers, however, are primarily comprised of a naturally-occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid (HA). Your body produces HA and stores it at the foundation layer of your skin to provide ongoing structural support. As you grow older and the integrity of your skin starts to break down, there will be significantly less HA present within your skin tissues.
Once HA-based facial fillers have been injected into your skin, this acid will bind to nearby skin cells and start attracting and absorbing water molecules. The result is a rapid and impressive plumping effect that efficiently fills in and smooths out static wrinkles.
