As we age, our skin naturally loses some of its volume. This happens because our bodies produce less collagen, and this reduction can make skin sag or wrinkle. While this is natural, it can diminish our confidence and leave us feeling less than pleased with our appearance.
Everyone deserves to love the skin they’re in. To restore a more radiant and youthful appearance, many people turn to injectable dermal fillers.
What are Injectable Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers smooth out wrinkles, add facial volume, and help your skin look more plump, hydrated, and youthful. These fillers can help reverse the signs of aging, prevent your skin from sagging, soften wrinkles and fine lines, and more.
What are dermal fillers? They are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. Many types of fillers are approved for cosmetic procedures, and choosing the right one for your skin is critical. Speaking with an experienced professional, such as a member of our team at Glamour MD, can help you make the right choice.
How Do They Work?
Dermal fillers fill in areas of low volume to create a softer and more youthful appearance. The gel closely resembles your body’s natural hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricant in your body, adding volume to your skin. Using fillers also stimulates the body’s collagen production, helping your skin look younger and plumper.
Unlike Botox, which works by preventing muscles from contracting, dermal fillers fill in areas. This makes them a good choice for static wrinkles – those that remain even when your face is not moving. They can also help improve the appearance of fine lines.
Convenience is a reason why many people choose to receive dermal filler treatments. In many cases, the process of receiving fillers is quick – sometimes only around 30 minutes.
Dermal fillers are popular because they make your skin look younger and more rejuvenated without surgery.
There are typically very few side effects with these treatments as well as very little downtime. Unlike surgery, you won’t need to sit through a lengthy and potentially painful process, and you’ll be able to resume many of your regular activities shortly after your session.
What Areas Can They Treat?
There are many different areas where dermal fillers can help you look your best. For instance, they can be used to add volume to your lips, creating a fuller and more symmetrical look.
Fillers are also often used around the corners of the mouth to fill in lines that may develop.
They are often used to add volume to a person’s cheeks, which tend to naturally sag over time. By properly using dermal fillers, you can restore volume and look more youthful and radiant.
Using fillers on your forehead can reduce the appearance of static lines, smooth out creases, and give your skin a more smooth appearance.
The chin, nose, and other areas can even be reshaped through the use of facial fillers. Dermal fillers are often used along the chin to smooth wrinkles as well.
Dermal fillers can also help reduce the appearance of scars. Facial scars are a common insecurity for many people, so the ability to lessen the appearance of scars is a welcome relief.
Dermal fillers aren’t permanent, as they will eventually break down naturally and be absorbed in your body. However, you should continue to see results for at least six months, and potentially longer depending on the type of treatment you received and how quickly your body metabolizes the fillers.
