Aging leaves clues – and it starts leaving them a lot sooner than most people expect. Have you ever looked at a picture of yourself taken during childhood or your teenage years and wondered what happened to that beautiful skin? Of course you can’t reverse aging, but you can fight many of its effects. Dermal fillers are treatments that works well for many people. Let’s look at two of them.
What are dermal fillers?
Without getting overly technical, dermal fillers are dermatological treatments designed to add volume to the skin. Why add volume? To reduce or eliminate wrinkles, which are among the earliest and most pronounced signs of aging.
When performed by a licensed and experienced dermatologist, dermal fillers are highly effective in restoring your skin to a vibrancy and tone similar to what you had in those photos of years ago. Two of the more popular dermal filler treatments include Belotero and RADIESSE.
Belotero dermal filler
Belotero has as one of its components hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in human skin. By replacing the hyaluronic acid that’s been lost, Belotero is a good choice for treating areas of wrinkles, folds and lines around the mouth and nose.
Common targets of Belotero are smile lines known as nasolabial folds, as well as the thin lines that are sometimes found above the upper lip.
RADIESSE Volumizing Filler
RADIESSE takes up where Nature left off by kicking into gear the production of collagen, the loss of which can lead to wrinkles and other skin issues. It’s a filler that adds true volume rapidly, which means you’ll see results fast. In fact, one treatment is often all it takes to say goodbye to unsightly wrinkles.
Surveys of patients who received both RADIESSE treatment and other popular dermal filler treatments revealed that RADIESSE brought greater levels of satisfaction with the results. You may have the same opinion after seeing what this volumizing filler can do for you.
Another way of improving the appearance of your skin is with Botox, technically called Botulinum toxin. This treatment is widely known, thanks in part to the stunning effects it has had on the faces of countless models and actors. Hollywood and the runway are no places for old skin full of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, and your face isn’t a place for them, either.
The way Botox works is simple: administered as an injection, it goes right to work to cause facial muscles to relax, which causes wrinkles and lines to dissipate and vanish for as long as six months. This is accomplished with Botox’s ability to block nerve impulses that over time lead to wrinkled skin.
All of these treatments are safe and effective when performed by qualified medical practitioners, like those at DermSurgery Associates of Houston.
