Dermal fillers offer individuals the option of being treated for their lines and wrinkles without surgery. Fillers are injected into the skin areas that have lines and wrinkles. As the material is placed under the skin, it absorbs fluid and plumps up the area so the lines and wrinkles are smoothed. Learning all about this treatment option will help individuals to make a sound decision on whether or not they should seek a dermal filler.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
A dermal filler is a material that is injected into the deeper layers of the skin. Once injected, the material begins increasing in size, allowing for the plumping up of the area that has been treated. When the plumping action takes place, the area is made smooth so the lines and wrinkles are greatly reduced.
Dermal fillers contain some ingredients that are naturally found in the body, such as hyaluronic acid. These fillers are generally well tolerated by most people though individuals may experience some degree of redness, irritation, and swelling as the skin begins to heal.
What Can Dermal Fillers Do?
- Improve the way recessed scars look
- Plump up lips that are too thin
- Smooth facial lines and wrinkles
- Fill in hollow areas under the eyes and cheeks
- Reconstruct the contours of the face
Although dermal fillers offer individuals the opportunity to turn back the hands of time, it is important patients realize what dermal fillers cannot do. Dermal fillers offer a temporary treatment option to improve the look of lines and wrinkles. They do not offer the same results as a facelift but are ideal for those with mild to moderate wrinkles.
Dermal fillers cannot be used to treat sagging skin and will not make a huge difference for people who are suffering from deep lines and wrinkles. A consultation with the doctor will help a person learn if dermal fillers can help them with their skin issues.
