Luckily for those concerned about ageing, there are many skin care treatments out there today that promise to give you a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. But how many of these supposed anti-ageing treatments actually erase wrinkles and make you look younger? If you are noticing wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines, you may be looking for the best treatment to add volume and elasticity to your skin.
Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (which is naturally occurring) and are meant to be injected into problem areas of the skin for a plumper, refreshed appearance. Dermal fillers can essentially “fill in” wrinkles, sunken cheeks, acne scars, and even thin lips. Here, we’ve highlighted some of the benefits of dermal fillers for your wrinkles and how this treatment can help to keep your skin smooth and youthful.
How it Works
Dermal fillers are primarily made of hyaluronic acid that is naturally occurring in the human body. Over time, our body produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid, which leads to an increase in wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. Dermal fillers are administered into the skin by injections and work by filling in areas with low volume, such as wrinkles and sunken areas. They have even been used commonly to plump lips, giving a natural effect that doesn’t look overly done. Dermal filler injections are quick, painless, and require little to no downtime. This makes them a popular choice for many, and an alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can be used in many areas such as the cheeks, lips, forehead, and chin. They can even be used to correct and smooth lines around the nose and any other areas you may develop wrinkles. One benefit to dermal fillers is that they are a safe treatment that can be done on different skin types and tones without much risk. The results are usually expected and non-permanent, as the filler dissolves naturally over time. The main benefit of this treatment is the ability to contour areas of the face and add volume for a wrinkle-free complexion.
Aftercare and Results
Since the use of dermal fillers as a wrinkle treatment is quick and non-invasive, there is very little downtime or side effects. Most people can get the treatment done during their lunch hour and go back to work without any issues. However, when you sit down for your consultation, make sure to take note of any instructions and aftercare that your specialist might suggest. After treatment, you may experience mild bruising and redness. Icing the area usually helps provide relief, and side effects rarely last longer than a few days. While dermal fillers are not permanent, they can last for months and may need to be touched up during follow-up visits to maintain results.
Due to their plumping effects, dermal fillers can be used for more than just treating wrinkles. They can be used on depressed skin and acne scars to lift the area and make it even with the rest of the skin. Dermal fillers can fill in temples and even fix saggy earlobes and ageing, thin skin on hands. Some dermal fillers are made up of different materials to make them tougher and less soft so that they can enhance certain areas of the face and generally last longer. Your specialist or cosmetic surgeon can determine which type of dermal filler is right for your needs and your skin.
Ultimately, dermal fillers are an effective treatment with more than one use. If you are looking to reduce wrinkles, treat laugh lines and crow’s feet, and gain youthful, supple skin, then dermal fillers may be suitable for you. It’s a good idea to speak to a specialist that can formulate a treatment plan for you and discuss your skin concerns and needs. Dermal fillers not only improve your appearance, but they can improve your self-esteem as well and help ensure that you are confident and comfortable in your daily life.
