As we age, we lose volume and elasticity in our faces resulting in wrinkles, folds around the mouth and hollowing around the eyes and cheeks. Bony changes in our faces also result in a more aged appearance.
When the signs of aging are from volume loss, dermal fillers are a great way to achieve a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance beauty and create a more dramatic appearance. They are used to plump and sculpt the lips and lift the cheeks. Dermal fillers are also used to treat scars and to plump deflated earlobes resulting in earrings fitting better. Not all facial volume loss is secondary to age, so dermal fillers are also popular with younger people who may have lost weight or who are very fit and have low body fat.
There is a wide variety of dermal fillers available, each one with its own positive characteristics. They are made of different ingredients, last for different lengths of time, and have different risks.
A consultation appointment is essential in determining whether dermal fillers are an appropriate choice for the cosmetic concern you would like to correct. There are boney changes, volume changes, and color, tone, and texture changes that can happen to the skin over time making your skin and face look dull and tired. Dermal fillers can address these concerns.
Dermal fillers can be life-changing for many patients that have felt self-conscious about the way they are aging.
