How dermal fillers from DermSurgery Associates reverse the effects of aging in facial skin
– When it comes to our appearance, a little often goes a long way. Take facial lines and wrinkles, for example. These are natural signs of aging, and there’s only so much one can do to prevent them from forming as the years pass. Just a few well placed wrinkles around the eyes or mouth can have a pretty big impact on your overall appearance.
Nobody wants to look older than they are, and fortunately there’s a very effective solution to combat some of the effects of aging: dermal fillers. When introduced beneath your skin by a trained dermatologist, dermal fillers can bring about a change in your appearance that’s borderline miraculous.
Why do wrinkles happen?
Wrinkles and other skin recessions happen because of the loss of subcutaneous fat. When we’re younger, this fat, which lies just below the skin, keeps the skin smooth and firm. As we age, we begin losing the fat that made the skin on our face always look so radiant. Less fat means more likelihood of developing wrinkles and fine lines.
Along with fat loss, another contributor to wrinkles is looser skin, which is also a normal part of aging. Skin becomes less elastic as we grow older, and this stretching coupled with a reduction in subcutaneous fat will typically cause some degree of wrinkling.
Other factors that affect the appearance of facial skin include sun damage from overexposure, genetics and general lifestyle choices.
How dermal fillers are used
Aging is unavoidable, but some of its effects are very treatable. Dermal fillers, as the name implies, fill areas below the facial skin to push wrinkles away and smooth out the surface. This treatment isn’t used for toning the skin but rather for restoring the fullness and volume that have gone away over the years.
Dermal fillers are used to address several facial skin issues including:
- Crows feet
- Smile lines
- Thin lips
- Shallow areas
- Recessed scars
If you’re experiencing any of these conditions, you know that it doesn’t take much to substantially alter your appearance. The good news is, it doesn’t take much to temporarily reverse these alterations.
