Do you look in the mirror and see your face showing those visible signs of aging a bit more each week? Do you want to restore your youthful glow, get rid of wrinkles, and smooth out those fine lines? Or maybe you’re looking for a lip enhancer – something that can make your lips fuller and more attractive? Well, if so, the good news is that there is a way to get your youthful looks restored and it doesn’t require you to go under the knife! Aesthetics may be the answer for you, as these non-surgical cosmetic enhancements are becoming better and more affordable. Many people are turning to dermal fillers like Juvederm that are time tested, safe, and in the hands of a skilled medical professional, can get great results – literally taking years off of your appearance. So, let’s answer some common questions about fillers:
What are dermal fillers?
Volume loss is one of the most important reasons why we show signs of aging. As we grow older, our facial tissues and collagen thin out causing the lines around our mouth, cheeks, and nose to become deeper.
Dermal filler, the best yet cost-effective wrinkle filler, is a gel-like substance cosmetic surgeons and aesthetic practitioners use to get rid of their patients’ wrinkles; and it is one of the best non-surgical solutions for people who want to look younger.
What are dermal fillers made with?
The US Food and Drug Authority approved a variety of filler products that can be used to help patients get rid of wrinkles. Each of these fillers has a certain texture, injection depth, and density that doctors can use depending on the facial skin area they are dealing with. The most commonly used dermal fillers contain:
The skin contains natural hyaluronic acid. It helps keep the skin looking plump and hydrated. However, as we age, we slowly lose the hyaluronic acid under our skin resulting in the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, are gel-like and soft. This filler is injected to achieve a temporary wrinkle-free skin that lasts for about six to twelve months until the body gradually absorbs the hyaluronic acid particles.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is another naturally occurring substance, and most of it is in our bones. Compared to hyaluronic acid, fillers that contain calcium hydroxylapatite, such as the FDA-approved Radiesse, are usually thicker, and as a result, its effect usually lasts longer (about twelve months) than hyaluronic acid filler. Aside from being just a filler, calcium hydroxylapatite can also help trigger natural production of collagen within the body resulting in better anti-aging effect.
When choosing a clinic for injectable dermal fillers, you should be certain to choose one that has highly trained and experienced medical staff. Administering dermal fillers does not require a surgical procedure; nevertheless, it is still a medical procedure that requires skill and specific training to ensure the safest and the most natural-looking results.
