As we age, it’s completely normal for your skin to become paper-like and for lines and wrinkles to develop. Taking good care of your skin can help stave of those signs of aging, but even the best moisturizer on the market can’t completely rejuvenate your skin. Known by some as liquid facelifts, dermal fillers have soared in popularity, not in the least because of their effectiveness at treating the signs of aging. Unlike the traditional facelift, with dermal fillers, you don’t have to go under the knife or go through other traumatic beauty procedure to turn back the hands of time. Below, you can read more about how different kinds of dermal fillers work so that you can choose the best one for your specific skin care needs.
What Makes Dermal Fillers So Effective?
Dermal fillers are effective because they get at the root cause of age-related skin concerns: the loss of moisture and collagen. When we age, our bodies slow down the production of collagen, which is what leads to fine lines and wrinkles as well as lost skin elasticity. Dermal fillers work to correct these losses of collagen and moisture by injecting into the skin substances that either help your skin retain moisture or help prompt collagen production.
Juvederm® is a family of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid in order to achieve results. Hyaluronic acid is actually a substance that is found in the body, usually around the joints. Yet when injected into the face, hyaluronic acid is able to attract water and help your skin retain moisture.
Juvederm® Ultra is excellent at helping treat lines around the mouth, nose, and under the eyes, while Juvederm® Ultra XC is used to add that perfect plump of volume to the lips. Juvederm® Voluma is the perfect choice for those who are looking to add volume to the sunken areas of their face, including the jawline and under eye area. The results from Juvederm® can last anywhere from 9 months to two years.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that uses calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a substance that is able to stimulate collagen production. Radiesse® also contains microbeads that are able to add that much-needed volume. A thicker filler than Juvederm®, Radiesse® is mostly used to treat that deep, harsh facial folds that appear around the nose and mouth. Radiesse® can also plump up cheeks and even be used in the hands. Results from Radiesse® last for years.
