Dermal fillers are one of the most effective ways to deal with a loss of facial volume and other signs of aging, such as lines and wrinkles. When a person starts to get older, they lose fat in their face. Their skin also loses healthy substances that keep it looking moisturized, smooth and soft. So, when these fillers are skillfully injected into certain areas, they immediately add more volume and provide a wide variety of other benefits to your skin.
Are All Dermal Fillers Exactly the Same?
Some individuals have the mistaken idea that a filler is just a filler. While most dermal fillers do have the same purpose, they are not all created the same. Most of them are basically a gel that is injected underneath the skin in order to add volume and fill in wrinkles. However, each type of filler contains different forms of active ingredients. Some forms of fillers are preferred for different areas of the face.
Most of today’s dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid. This is something that helps your skin to look firm and stay hydrated. It is something your skin has an abundance of when you are in your younger years, but that goes away as you get older. During a consultation at our office, we will tell you about all of the different dermal filler options we have available and show you which one is likely to be the best option for your particular wants and needs.
Is BOTOX® the Same as a Dermal Filler?
Sometimes people get BOTOX® and fillers confused. They are both cosmetic treatments that are non-surgical and provide many benefits. However, BOTOX® is used in order to treat dynamic wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles under the skin, leaving the skin above smooth and wrinkle-free. Dermal fillers are typically used to treat static wrinkles. They do not affect the muscles in any way. They simply add volume to areas of your face where you are dealing with wrinkles or depressions.
Who are Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers?
This treatment is safe for almost anyone who is interested in erasing the wrinkles they have on their face or restoring lost facial volume. Most of the fillers that are currently on the market contain ingredients that are already naturally found in the human body. This is great for individuals who have allergies. They do not need to worry about having an allergic reaction to this treatment.
