The development of folds, ridges or creases in the skin is commonplace as individuals begin to age, which leads to the formation of wrinkles. Skin becomes drier and thinner, losing its elasticity which reduces its ability to snap back into place. This results in dynamic wrinkles becoming permanent, no longer disappearing when the face is in a relaxed state. The lack of collagen and elastin also contributes to the skin’s inability to continue repairing itself.
Also known as hyaluronic acid fillers, no down time is required and it is also an anti-aging technique that can help to produces swift results that look natural, leaving you feeling younger and rejuvenated.
Produced naturally in your body, hyaluronic acid adds volume underneath facial skin along with fat cells, collagen and elastin. As you get older, natural hyaluronic acid reserves begin to break down but this can be remedied with dermal fillers that reduce wrinkles and fine lines and creates plumper lips. Just a small amount of dermal fillers are needed to make a noticeable difference to your image, taking years off your appearance.
Usable on its own or together with other treatments such as Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections and laser resurfacing, the effects of a dermal filler are similar to that of a non-surgical facelift. The procedure is suitable for all types of skin and no allergies will be triggered as hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, making it safe to use on any individual.
These fillers can last over a year, but the length of results may vary depending on the individual. As the hyaluronic acid is natural, the body will eventually break it down and absorb it so it is important to note that dermal fillers are not a permanent treatment. This also ensures that you are not at risk of being forced to maintain a look you are unsatisfied with in the coming years.
Most people are able to return to their daily routine immediately after treatment without any problems. Some redness, minor swelling or bruising may occur in the treatment area but this is easily hidden with mineral make-up.
