No one needs to undergo an invasive surgery like a facelift in order to rejuvenate their appearance. With a single appointment that lasts just one hour, we can add volume to your face, erase wrinkles and help you to finally look as young as you feel. This can be accomplished by using dermal fillers.
The Aging Process
While there are a number of steps that can be taken to slow the signs of aging, almost everyone will have to deal with cosmetic issues, such as fine lines and facial wrinkles, at some point. Around the age of 30, an individual’s body will begin to produce fewer proteins, such as collagen and elastin. This means your body must fight an uphill battle to keep your skin smooth and plump. Once these cosmetic issues have developed, dermal fillers are one of the most effective ways to restore your youthful appearance.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers can either be used as a standalone procedure or as a single component in a comprehensive rejuvenation program. The primary goal of a dermal filler is to add volume to areas of the face that have lost subcutaneous fat. While the thought of losing fat might sound appealing at first, extra soft tissue in one’s face is actually a good thing. After the fat is metabolized, cosmetic problems, such as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, become much more apparent.
In addition to adding immediate volume to the patient’s face, many dermal fillers also stimulate the production of collagen. By doing this, your body can begin the process of repairing damaged skin. A facelift certainly cannot accomplish this. Depending on which dermal filler you choose, you might be able to enjoy the results for 12 months or longer.
The Ideal Candidate for Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers do not completely change a patient’s appearance. Instead, they give our experts the ability to make subtle changes to a person’s forehead, cheeks, nose and lips. An ideal dermal filler patient will be a healthy adult who is unhappy with their appearance due to a loss of facial volume.
All patients should also have realistic expectations about what dermal fillers can and cannot do. During your consultation at our office, you will be given a closer look at the types of results you can expect.
Recovering from Dermal Fillers
Unlike a facelift, dermal fillers have no downtime. Most patients can head back to work or their other daily activities immediately following the procedure. You may just be asked to stay out of the sun for at least a few hours and refrain from exercising for the rest of the day.
