Just because dermal fillers have been around for quite a long time does not mean you know everything you need to know about what these products can do for you. Many people hesitate to schedule this wrinkle-reducing treatment for that very reason; they don’t know everything they want to about what dermal fillers are and how they work to take that leap. If you’re growing weary of seeing lines and wrinkles on your face, now is a great time to learn more about dermal filler treatment.
What are Dermal Fillers?
A dermal filler is an injectable gel that has an active ingredient that increases volume in soft tissue. Many of the dermal fillers that we use contain tiny, cross-linked particles of hyaluronic acid. This ingredient restores volume to the skin by binding to water particles. Other fillers restore the structure needed for smooth skin with microspheres of calcium or other ingredients. While formulations may change, fillers all work on the same premise of enhancing plumpness in the skin to smooth creases or build better facial contours.
Dermal fillers, used properly, have a long record of success. The treatment is very safe and incurs few side effects if any. Remember, though, that injections should only be received from a licensed, trained professional. Where you get dermal filler treatments matters.
Benefits of Dermal Filler Treatment
An experienced injector deposits small amounts of dermal filler into target areas to achieve consistent, natural-looking results. Dermal filler treatment is associated with several benefits, including:
- No downtime
- Immediate results
- Minimal redness, swelling, and bruising, if any
- Additionally, dermal fillers offer several opportunities for enhancement, including:
- Soften lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
- Reduction or elimination of melolabial folds between the corners of the mouth and sides of the chin
- Eliminate fine lines around the lips
- Enhance the volume and shape of the lips
- Cheek augmentation
- Reduction or elimination of undereye bags
- Reduction of undereye hollowing
