Dermal fillers have become extremely popular in recent years because they offer a treatment choice that significantly enhances the appearance of skin without the need for surgery or any extensive downtime. But before undergoing any type of cosmetic treatment, you will need some good information to help steer you in the right direction.
Sometimes known as the liquid facelift, dermal fillers are a treatment choice that is appropriate for almost anyone dealing with fine lines and wrinkles or hollow areas on the face. They consist of gels containing various substances that are injected to promote increased skin thickness as a way of minimizing lines and wrinkles.
Restylane® is a type of hyaluronic acid filler that is quite effective at smoothing out lines and wrinkles on the face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that will draw moisture into your skin for a plumping and volumizing effect.
Like Restylane®, Juvederm® has hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. It also contains lidocaine to ensure patient comfort during the entire process. Juvederm® is very easy on the skin because it consists of a very silky-smooth gel.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are an excellent treatment choice for those who do not currently require cosmetic surgery or wish to extend the effects of previous surgery. It is also good for those who want to prevent the early development of lines and wrinkles.
One of the main benefits of fillers is their ability to offer significant results with little to no downtime. This means that you can go right back to work or your daily life immediately after your quick treatment.
Another benefit of fillers is that, properly administered, they offer results that are soft and natural. In most cases, we are utilizing substances that are virtually identical to naturally-occurring substances produced by your own body. We are just supplementing things like hyaluronic acid because your body produces less of these substances as you grow older.
The length of time that your results will last depends upon the product that you are treated with. Generally, dermal fillers offer results that are long-lasting, with many lasting up to a year or more before additional injections are required.
