Dermal Fillers for Facial Wrinkles
Are you dealing with facial wrinkles? Dermal fillers can help minimize the appearance of these common signs of aging. There are several different types of filler injections, but all of them help smooth the facial skin by adding volume either by drawing in moisture or by filling the area with a special gel compound. Depending on the severity of the problem you’d like to treat, we will recommend which dermal filler will achieve the best results.
Types of Dermal Fillers
The most commonly used dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid. This acid is produced naturally by the body, but adults often don’t have enough of it in their system to maintain smooth facial skin. The acid holds moisture and therefore is a good treatment for thinning lips and for lines near the mouth.
Consulting with Our Client
We examine the face closely and note the thickness of the skin where the lines and wrinkles are developing. In many cases, the appearance of these tiny wrinkles is due to a decreased amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid in and below the skin. An acid filler can be used to plump these areas.
We will determine which treatment will work best, and we will plan for a treatment session that is convenient for the client. No special pre-treatment regimen need be undertaken.
A Simple Cosmetic Treatment
Dermal fillers are skillfully injected into preselected areas. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office. The results are immediate, but they can also improve over time. The filler begins to draw in and hold moisture the same day it is injected, but the real results become noticeable in the weeks following the treatment.
No Surgery Required
These are very simple cosmetic treatments that generally yield quite satisfying results. Most dermal fillers will do the job for months, after which the treatment can simply be repeated. This is a preferred treatment for those who aren’t ready for a facelift.
