Skin care has come a long way in the past few decades, and you should know that there are ways of taking care of your skin and looking younger that don’t involve the hassle and expense of surgery. Dermal fillers are a great way to stay young-looking – read on to find out what they can do for you!
What is a dermal filler?
Dermal fillers can be used with patients that have moderate signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. They can also moisturize the skin, lift sagging skin to provide structure, help acne-prone skin, and stimulate collagen production to give your skin a healthy, youthful look.
It isn’t just older people coming in for dermal fillers, though. More and more, patients as young as 30 are getting fillers to correct flaws and prevent signs of aging.
There are different fillers that can be used, depending on the results you would like to see and which one your provider thinks would work best for you. JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® can both smooth out wrinkles while adding volume to the skin. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® is used specifically for cheek augmentation, while JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® is used to give volume to the lips. Restylane also has products that are used for specific purposes – Perlane® is used for deeper wrinkles.
What are the advantages of dermal fillers?
Patients love that fillers can be injected right into the problem area, which shows immediate changes. Depending on which filler you get, the results can last anywhere from 4 to 24 months. There is no downtime with dermal fillers, and an appointment only takes about 30 minutes – many patients have it done on their lunch hour and then can get right back to work.
Another good thing about fillers is that any side effects are barely noticeable. Side effects might include bruising or swelling, but these are usually minimal and disappear quickly.
