Dermal fillers can help to reduce the appearance of fine line wrinkles merely by plumping up the affected area of skin. This loss of volume can be attributed to a decrease in collagen production or weakened support tissue that lies beneath the dermal layers. Filler injections are popular because they add volume without the need for surgical repositioning of the skin.
There are several different types of dermal fillers. Some use hyaluronic acid, and others are made from other ingredients. We recommend scheduling a consultation with our expert so that the proper filler compound can be determined. The actual filler used depends on the severity, location and cause of the wrinkling and volume loss.
Popular Dermal Fillers
Filler injection gels are easily placed beneath the skin via injection. The most common type of filler contains hyaluronic acid. This acid draws in moisture from the lymphatic system and plumps up the area that needs additional volume.
These are not permanent treatments for wrinkling skin, but the effects last for more than six months. All of these treatments are repeatable at regular intervals.
What to Expect During Dermal Filler Treatment
There is no pre-treatment care required on the part of the client. We will suggest that clients refrain from using pain medications if possible. The entire procedure may take only 10 minutes or so. The client can resume normal duties at once.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
The benefits are many and include smoother skin with no discoloration. Unlike peel treatments that can cause demarcation lines between treated and untreated areas, filler injections do not cause regions of pigmentation that differ from the rest of the skin surface.
Since the skin is not being resurfaced through abrasion, there is no risk of scarring. Depending on the severity of the wrinkling, the amount of filler compound used must be determined beforehand, meaning that the amount of added volume is easily controlled by the specialist.
