Dermal fillers offer a convenient alternative to conventional cosmetic surgery for those dealing with light lines and wrinkles or other issues. Fillers provide a way of reducing signs of aging without the need for surgery and the downtime that goes with it.
What are Dermal Fillers?
A dermal filler is an injectable product consisting of some form of active ingredient suspended within a flowing gel. Once injected into the face, the filler does what you would expect based on its name: It fills in fine lines and wrinkles to reduce the effects of aging. Fillers also help to fill in hollow areas like those found sometimes on the cheeks or under the eyes.
What Conditions Do Dermal Fillers Treat?
Fillers have been found to be safe and effective for minimizing signs of aging like lines and wrinkles, hollow areas on the face, and overall aging skin. They can also be used to fill in pitted scars and to improve the look of facial creases and folds.
Can Fillers Really Help with My Lines and Wrinkles?
The vast majority of prospective patients would make suitable candidates for treatment with dermal fillers. As long as you are in good general health and are not suffering from an active breakout or skin infection, you would likely benefit from the treatment. You also need to have the type of wrinkles that fillers were designed to treat.
Juvederm® is a type of filler consisting of something called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that promotes increased skin volume and hydration.
Results of Dermal Fillers
Fillers offer excellent results that are long-lasting. Although the length of time that they remain in effect will vary, depending upon the product, they still offer significant anti-aging results. Treatments can be repeated as needed for ongoing benefits.
