Throughout one's life, the sun's radiation, stress, gravity, and other factors cause the skin to sag and fit more loosely. Areas of the face and neck, in particular around the jawline, are especially prone to the aging process. Though these changes are gradual, wrinkles and other signs of aging can make individuals "feel older" than they really are.
Fillers are a temporary fix (they last for different amounts of time), but they are a simple procedure that can generally be done in an hour or less. Unlike a face or brow lift, you won't need general anesthetic, stitches or have a long recovery period. They will plump up facial hollows, reduce frown or laugh lines, and give you a more youthful appearance.
What are Dermal Fillers?
If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression. But that's not all. Did you know instead of undergoing a nose job you can use derma fillers to achieve a balanced straight beautiful nose!?
Derma fillers can be used to augment the chin and jawline giving the face a more symmetrical, balanced youthful look.
As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play.
Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers add volume to weakened facial features and can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way but similar in two. First, they plump skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen and restore your face to a more natural, youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers approved by the FDA are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising and swelling which are usually very minimal and resolve quickly.
Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment.
