Dermal fillers help to decrease facial lines and restore your skin to look much younger.
As we age, our faces lose subcutaneous fat naturally. The muscles in the face are then working closer to the surface of your skin, so lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
Stretching of the facial skin also occurs, adding to a loss in facial volume. There are other factors that affect the facial skin including lifestyle, heredity and lifetime sun exposure.
Dermal fillers are used to:
- Plump up lips
- Enhance shallow curves in facial skin
- Diminish facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of long term scars
For those with early signs of aging, dermal fillers can be very helpful. They are also very useful after facial rejuvenation surgery.
What can dermal fillers not do
The best approach for some patients might be surgical route such as a face, brow, or eye lift. Although non-surgical rejuvenation treatments, like fillers, may delay the time when this surgical procedure would be appropriate, it cannot accomplish the same results.
