Has your skin become thinner recently? Are you seeing more lines and wrinkles on your face? There is a connection between these two unwelcome skin developments. A loss of facial volume is one of the main causes of wrinkle development. Your skin can also become drier at this time, further exacerbating the problem. Fortunately, a treatment with facial fillers could help rectify this common problem without you needing to undergo surgery.
Minimally-invasive anti-aging treatments like facial fillers offer numerous advantages over traditional cosmetic surgery for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles. Since no incisions are required, your healing time will be extremely minimal. The treatment is also faster, and you should be able to go back to your daily life almost immediately.
What are Facial Fillers?
A filler is simply an injectable product contained within a flowing gel. There are some differences between the various products, but all fillers help to restore facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
What Types of Facial Fillers are Available?
There are quite a few fillers on the market today, with each boasting of its individual advantages. The type of filler that is right for you can be determined at your initial consultation.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is an important substance that is produced by your own body. The aging process and exposure to toxins can lead to a loss of hyaluronic acid production. Since its role in the body is for volumizing your skin, a loss of this important skin component leads to thinner skin. In addition, hyaluronic acid attracts moisture into your skin cells.
A hyaluronic acid facial filler involves the injection of the material mixed within a flowing gel. Once present within your skin, it goes to work to add hydration and volume to your skin, smoothing away lines and wrinkles.
