Sooner or later, getting older means that you will begin to notice the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face. Some Fort Lauderdale residents are fortunate and they appear later in life, while others begin to suffer signs of premature aging due to either genetics or environmental factors. It is a mistake to believe that the only way to deal with aging skin and a loss of facial volume is to undergo some type of cosmetic surgery. In fact, there are numerous treatment options available that do not involve surgery such as dermal fillers. They offer real results without the need for lengthy downtimes.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances contained within a gel that promote an increase in skin thickness and the diminishment of fine lines and wrinkles.
Most of the popular dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Each is suitable for certain skin conditions, and your dermatologist can help you determine which one is right for you and your individual needs.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a very important substance when it comes to youthful skin. Your body produces and deposits it in areas like your joints, eyes, and skin. It has a unique property that allows it to attract and bind water molecules, which has a cushioning and thickening effect. The bad news is that as you grow older your body produces less hyaluronic acid, and your skin will become thinner and drier as a result.
This unwelcome development can be partially reversed by undergoing a hyaluronic acid dermal filler injection treatment. After we inject the filler into your skin, it goes to work immediately correcting fine lines and wrinkles by adding volume to your skin. In addition to the increased volume, the hyaluronic acid will also act as a sort of internal moisturizer to fully hydrate your skin. Your facial structure will look plumper and have a youthful glow after hyaluronic acid fillers.
How Soon Can I Expect Results?
Your results will be immediately noticeable and gradually improve over the following weeks. It is important to note, however, that your skin will continue to age normally. At some point, depending upon the exact product that was injected, your face will require additional treatments in order to maintain your increased facial volume.
