Dermal fillers are injectable formulas designed to counteract the effects of aging. If you’d like to add fullness to your face and reduce the appearance of facial lines, then it might be time to consider what dermal fillers can do for you.
How Dermal Fillers Can Help You
As you get older, your face begins to lose subcutaneous fat, which causes your facial muscles to work much closer to your skin’s surface. When this happens, fine lines become much more noticeable, and you’ll see a major decline in facial volume.
A few other factors that can negatively affect the appearance of your face include lifestyle, heredity and sun exposure. With the help of dermal fillers, you can add fullness to thinning lips, soften facial wrinkles and enhance shallow contours.
Injectable fillers can even make recessed scars look much better. We recommend these products for the early signs of aging, and if you’re dealing with reduced facial volume and wrinkles, dermal fillers can significantly improve the appearance of your face.
What Can Be Treated?
Dermal fillers can work great for several cosmetic problems, and they’re regularly used for smoothing out deep creases and adding volume to the face. Laugh lines are great examples of deep creases, and they respond well to fillers.
Another problem that can be corrected with dermal fillers is thinning lips, and with the help of these injectable products, you can plump your lips and fight back against the unwanted effects of aging.
Dermal fillers are commonly used to augment and enhance the shape of the cheeks, and they’re great for restoring fullness to these areas. You might even consider injectable fillers for indented acne scars because they’re very effective for adding volume.
How Dermal Fillers Work
A lot of people confuse injectable fillers with treatments like BOTOX®. Although both treatments can be used for similar purposes, they work in different ways. Dermal fillers are made from synthetic material, and like BOTOX®, they’re injected directly into the skin.
However, this is where the similarities end. Fillers are different because they’re designed to add volume. BOTOX® reduces wrinkles by relaxing tiny muscles within the face, and it’s not engineered to add volume.
The main purpose of dermal fillers is to add fullness to areas of your face. All fillers will add fullness, and some products are made to stimulate natural collagen production in the target area, which produces long-term benefits.
What Are the Results Like?
After being treated with dermal fillers, you can expect the results to last about six months, but the results from some fillers can last up to two years. The two main types of fillers are natural and synthetic, and most available products are natural and made from hyaluronic acid.
