What Are Dermal Fillers?

As we age, our faces naturally develop facial lines and lose subcutaneous fat. Facial skin also thins, which increases volume loss. As a result, smile lines and crow’s feet become more noticeable. The age at which fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume become obvious depends on multiple factors, such as lifestyle, heredity, and sun exposure.

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments designed to help reduce the visible signs of aging. They are an alternative to plastic surgery that can reduce the signs of facial aging and boost facial rejuvenation.

There are different types of dermal fillers. They differ in chemical markup, longevity, and degrees of softness. To achieve the best results, it’s important for the best dermal filler to be matched to a patient based on their desired outcome.

The Major Benefits of Dermal Fillers

What can dermal fillers do? They can generate major benefits including:

  • Enhancement of shallow contours
  • Plumping of thin lips
  • Softening of facial lines, creases, and wrinkles
  • Improvement of the appearance of recessed facial scars
  • Reconstruction of contour deformities
  • Decreasing the appearance of lower lid shadowing

These benefits can sometimes be achieved without the expense, inconvenience, and risk associated with plastic surgery. Dermal filler results are predictable and have relatively minimal risks and side effects.

Who Can Use Them?

Dermal fillers are a great, non-surgical facial rejuvenation and anti-aging treatment, but they can’t always provide the best outcome for every patient. For some, a facelift, eye lift, or brow lift surgery is the best option. However, if used early on, soft tissue fillers can delay the need for invasive surgeries. The best dermal fillers are the ones capable of providing the best outcome for you.

If you are physically healthy, don’t smoke, are committed to maintaining good skincare and health, and have a positive outlook coupled with realistic goals for improving your appearance, then you may be a good candidate for dermal fillers. The best way to find out is to schedule a personal consultation.
