Facial Fillers: The Options
April is the month to celebrate beauty, and you may be considering cosmetic treatments with dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and enhance your features. The immediate benefits of facial fillers are why injectable treatments are amongst the most popular cosmetic solutions for men and women. Several companies have introduced anti-aging gel products that help with common skin concerns, and this means that you have many options for your treatments.
Why Dermal Fillers are Popular
Anti-aging has been a common goal for men and women for many decades. Plastic surgery was once the only option, and patients either had to wait until the wrinkles were severe enough or undergo procedures that were too extensive for their needs. Dermal fillers alleviate the requirement for men and women to have lengthy recoveries, yet still be able to look younger. The treatments take very little time, and, as dermal fillers have evolved, the results are simply amazing.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is one of the secrets behind the incredible results that can be achieved with facial fillers. HA is a substance that is found in your skin, but that is produced at much lower levels as you age. HA is important because it helps to hydrate the skin. Without it, your skin becomes dehydrated and wrinkled. Juvéderm® is one of the top names in HA fillers, and the products can be used for moderate to severe wrinkles. The makers of Juvéderm® have also introduced Voluma® as a specialized dermal filler for the cheeks.
Collagen: Your Skin’s Support Structure
Collagen is another important element in young skin. It works as a support structure to keep the skin lifted. As with HA, your body produces less collagen, and your skin essentially collapses inward to form wrinkles. Radiesse® works by stimulating natural collagen production to fill in lines and wrinkles.
Neuromodulators for Dynamic Wrinkles
Another reason that you develop wrinkles is that your skin is pinched by muscle contractions. As the skin loses elasticity, it cannot resist the constant pressure and eventually remains permanently creased. This occurs in the forehead and eye areas. Neuromodulators, such as Botox®, temporarily relax the muscles to allow the skin time to soften and become smooth. Botox® is effective for crow’s feet, frown lines and other types of wrinkles.
