Dermal fillers, whether synthetic or naturally obtained, are substances introduced into the skin by injection to fill lines and lend fullness to the lips. They help to reverse the effects of aging on the facial skin. For Wiping Away the Signs of Aging
Aging is accompanied by a decrease in the production of collagen and the dermis losing important components such as collagen fibers, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. This results in the deterioration of the dermis skin structure and causes wrinkles, creases, and folds. Dermal fillers replace the skin’s lost components thereby not just wiping away the lines but also enhancing the facial contour. Commonly used dermal fillers include Radiesse, Restylane, Hylaform, and Juvederm.
Smoothes Out Wrinkles and Improves Sunken Areas
Depending on what the individual needs of the patient are, the consultant may suggest a single filler or a combination of various fillers achieve impressive results. Usually, before injecting the dermal filler, numbing medication would be locally injected or a topical numbing cream applied. The dermal filler is injected deep into the skin at the locations of scars, wrinkles, creases or sunken areas. Wrinkles are smoothened and the sunken areas are given more volume. So, if old age has caused the patient’s cheeks to become sunken, dermal fillers could help.What Good Dermal Filler Treatment Is About
A good dermal filler:
• Can be easily administered
• Would stay in the dermis for a considerable length of time
• Has high safety standards
What a person gains out of a properly administered dermal filler treatment is firm, youthful looking skin.
Keep in Mind
Reactions to the injection include redness, swelling at the injection site, discoloration, and discomfort but thankfully these reactions are temporary, most of the time. Follow-up treatments would be necessary for sustaining the results.
