Do you want to do something about the signs of aging on your face and the backs of your hands, but you don’t want surgery? You may want to consider dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are a physician-administered injection treatment that literally fills in the skin, pushing out wrinkles and filling in depressions in the skin – making the skin look smoother and younger. Let’s talk about how dermal fillers work, and where you can go in Dallas right across from the SMU campus for smooth skin, plump lips, and beautiful hands.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
A dermal filler is an injectable product that is composed of natural materials such as hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that occurs naturally in the human body. A trained healthcare provider can use an ultra-fine needle to inject the filler into the troublesome areas of skin, such as between the nose and mouth, around the lips, in the cheeks, or on the backs of the hands. The product immediately smooths out lines and plumps up the skin or lips.
The effect should last for at least 6 months and may last for 2 years or so before another injection is needed in order to maintain the smooth look. What happens is that the body safely and naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid, so more is needed. Typically, patients stay on a maintenance plan to keep their refreshed appearance indefinitely.
Which Dermal Fillers Work Best?
Two of the most popular dermal fillers are the Juvéderm line and the Restylane line. These products are highly effective and well-tolerated by almost all patients. The injection treatments take just minutes for your provider to administer, and you will notice the results right away.
These dermal fillers rejuvenate and fill in the “parentheses lines” (the nasolabial folds) between the nose and mouth, fill in the “marionette lines” between the mouth and the chin, plump up the lips, and fill in and smooth out the skin on the backs of the hands. For the safest and longest-lasting results, your med spa provider will review your medical history and discuss the cosmetic outcomes you desire.
Who Can Have Dermal Fillers?
Most adults who are 21 or older can typically receive dermal filler treatments. Adverse reactions, such as allergies to the treatment, are rare. However, people who have bleeding disorders should avoid all injectable aesthetic treatments.
What Beauty Issues Do Dermal FillersFix?
Dermal fillers work for what dermatologists call static wrinkles. These wrinkles result from normal aging and loss of elasticity in the skin. Dermal fillers don’t work as well for dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by smiling and frowning.
The active ingredient in most dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid, hydrates exceptionally well. Skin remains moisturized and youthful-looking for weeks to months.
Each treatment plan is fully individualized according to:
- Personal preferences and realistic goals
- Age and signs of aging
- Medical history
