Fine lines and wrinkles are one of the most unwelcome signs of aging. Some may escape them longer than others, but they are inevitable. Everyone will have to deal with them sooner or later. In days gone by there was little to be done about them other than get used to them and go on. Thankfully today we have some very effective options to help erase the effects of time. Injectable dermal fillers are one of the many options that just might be the right choice to help make your laugh lines disappear.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are exactly what the name implies. Filler substances are injected into the skin to plump up the tissues and fill in gaps that cause wrinkles. The treatment you receive will be chosen to give you the best results depending on your skin type and texture and type and location of wrinkles.
Botox is another injectable anti-aging treatment that works by blocking nerve impulses to certain muscles to prevent them from contracting and creating lines. Because of the way that it works Botox is only effective in treating lines caused by muscle movement. Dermal fillers are very different. They do not inhibit muscle movement and can provide effective wrinkle control virtually anywhere.
Not Just for Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles aren’t the only things dermal fillers can treat. They can also plump up tissues to fill in scars, giving your skin a smoother appearance. Certain filler formulas stimulate collagen production for more long term results.
What Can I Expect?
Before you begin treatments you will need a consultation to determine which option is right for you. The procedure itself doesn’t take very long and can usually be completed in less than an hour. You’ll be able to see immediate results. Sometimes you may need a touchup in a few months but results typically last for up to one year.
