Many people’s first concern with aging is fine lines and wrinkles. Volume loss and loss of elasticity can also cause you to appear much older than you would like to look. Fillers treat these problem areas by restoring lost volume with a safe injectable material, smoothing the skin, erasing fine lines, and contouring the face to achieve a more youthful shape. Dermal fillers can also be used to plump thin lips, diminish the appearance of scars, and even change the shape of your cheekbones and nose.
Volume loss is a natural result of the aging process, and is caused by the gradual loss of subcutaneous fat, reduced collagen production that reduces the skins elasticity, weakening of the muscles, and thinning of the skin that causes parts of the face to appear sagging and droopy. Sun damage, smoking, and even genetic factors can hasten the process, but eventually all skin types will succumb to this process.
Dermal fillers used in our clinic are clear gels comprised of hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers can be injected into the forehead, jaw, nasolabial folds, under your eyes, and in the hollow areas of your cheek. The skin immediately becomes plumper, causing fine lines such as crows feet and the lines on your upper lip to disappear, and even the deeper naso-labial lines appear remarkably diminished. When injected by a skilled professional, dermal fillers can also be used to contour the face – causing jaw lines to become sharper, depressed cheekbones to appear plumper and more youthful, and even change the size and shape of your nose.
Such procedures produce results that can last from six months to more than one year, depending on the type of filler used, how well you take care of your skin, and genetic factors. minimal risk of side effects can occur such as light bruising and swelling that resolves in a few days.
