If you are like many people who are getting older, you are beginning to notice lines and wrinkles when you look in the mirror. If your wrinkles have only recently developed and are light, you probably don’t need cosmetic surgery at this point. Dermal fillers offer a safe and effective alternative for some forms of cosmetic surgery when you are only dealing with superficial lines and wrinkles.
Wrinkle Reduction with Dermal Fillers
Fillers are injectable products that contain substances like hyaluronic acid. No matter what is contained in the filler, its objective is to correct lines and wrinkles by increasing facial skin volume. The products will push wrinkles up and out as skin increases in volume in the treatment area.
Advantages of Fillers
Treatment with dermal fillers is fast and easy, taking place at our office. Since it is a minimally-invasive treatment technique, you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately after your procedure. And since less skin tissue is damaged in this particular treatment, there is a far less chance of developing adverse events.
Another advantage to undergoing a treatment with a filler is its ability to offer you results that are very soft and natural. We are not injecting your face with some type of synthetic substance that can change your facial contours beyond what is plausible. We are merely correcting a deficiency of naturally-occurring substances.
Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that declines in both quantity and quality during the aging process. This unique substance has the ability to attract many times its own weight in water molecules. Its age-related deficiency leads to skin that gradually grows thinner and more susceptible to forming wrinkles. Juvederm® can correct this deficiency and reverse the process, leading to skin that is far smoother and more free of wrinkles.
Dermal Filler Results
Dermal fillers offer excellent anti-aging results that can last for up to a year or more, depending on the filler. There is a fairly wide range of duration of results, depending upon the type of product that you are treated with. It is important to realize that dermal fillers contain ingredients that will be eventually absorbed by your body, and you will need follow-up treatments to maintain your results.
