Dermal fillers, sometimes known as facial fillers, are treatments that we use to smooth away lines and wrinkles and volumize your face. These injectable products are able to safely and effectively fill in facial lines or increase lip size or cheek volume. Each product has its own individual characteristics. Some products work by increasing hydration, while others enhance your body’s ability to produce fresh collagen.
Skin Aging Has Many Causes
The role of age is well-known in the development of lines and wrinkles. However, the aging process is only one cause of skin aging, albeit a major factor. Sun damage also plays a large role in aging skin. It can cause your skin to age more rapidly than it would otherwise. This is because it leads to the rapid breakdown of certain substances that promote youthful skin. Of course, the aging process means that these substances are replaced more slowly than when you were young.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are two naturally-occurring substances that are found in large amounts in youthful skin. Collagen adds volume and bulk to your skin, while hyaluronic acid offers both volume and hydration. As you grow older, you produce less of both substances, and your skin becomes drier and more vulnerable to developing lines and wrinkles that can deepen over time.
Dermal Fillers to the Rescue
Dermal fillers offer a safe and convenient method of restoring substances like hyaluronic acid by injecting them into your skin. The active ingredients in each dermal filler are suspended within a flowable gel that is injected into your face. This helps to restore your normal levels of youth-enhancing materials.
Hyaluronic acid makes a wonderful dermal filler ingredient because it has the ability to both increase skin volume and hydration. The injected hyaluronic acid will attract many times its own weight in water into your skin. Think of it as an internal moisturizer that can help to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition to being an extremely safe skin rejuvenation treatment, dermal fillers offer results that are long-lasting. They also look natural.
