One of the most common complaints doctors hear from older people is that the condition of their skin has noticeably declined as they have aged. While perfectly normal, the appearance of creases, lines, wrinkles and thinning skin is disturbing to many people. It is certainly true that these conditions come with getting older, but that is no reason to give up the fight.
We live in an exciting era of constant advances in the field of cosmetic surgery. New techniques are available that even prevent the need for surgery in many cases. Many patients prefer these methods because they allow them to resume their normal lives more quickly, as well as being less risky and expensive.
Have you been experiencing a noticeable increase in the appearance of conditions like dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, skin folds and discoloration? Dermal fillers may be able to help you tackle these kinds of skin problems without the need for surgery.
A Look at Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are increasingly popular as a cosmetic treatment for reducing the appearance of common skin issues. Conditions like fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, a loss of facial volume and a lack of skin hydration can be addressed safely and effectively with dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that are delivered beneath the skin’s surface to increase facial volume, enhance skin texture or hydrate dry skin. These treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. They require virtually no downtime and have few side effects in addition to being a relatively inexpensive alternative to more complicated surgical techniques for skin rejuvenation.
Types of Dermal Fillers
The most popular dermal fillers contain either collagen or hyaluronic acid. Both of these substances are produced by your own body and promote skin health and volume. However, they are produced in lesser amounts as you grow older. The result is skin that loses volume, hydration and radiance. Dermal fillers help to correct these deficiencies by replacing lost collagen and hyaluronic acid.
