The older we get, the less subcutaneous fat is deposited in the facial tissues. The skin also becomes thinner and begins to stretch. The result is fine lines and wrinkles as well as lost facial volume. Injectable dermal fillers are a popular treatment for these conditions because they help restore volume and create a more youthful facial appearance. The natural curves in the cheeks and around the eyes are once again apparent and the lines and wrinkles are filled in. This makes the person look younger and more refreshed.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are various types of dermal fillers available today. Filler injections containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the skin, help draw in and hold moisture in the subdermal tissues. This helps plump the affected area and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are used to add volume to an area of the face. If the amount of hyaluronic acid stored beneath the skin has been decreasing, dermal fillers may be the ideal solution. If the problem is thinning skin, dermal fillers can also help with this.
Ideal candidates will have thinning skin that is showing signs of static wrinkling. If these wrinkles are located near the mouth, eyes or on the cheeks, they are probably caused by skin that is stretching as well as by poor hydration of the underlying tissues. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can help correct this.
Dermal fillers are versatile and can be used to address a variety of different cosmetic issues. For example, in addition to restoring lost facial volume and filling in lines and wrinkles, certain fillers can also be used for lip enhancement. Whether a person is dealing with thinning lips due to the natural aging process or they have always had naturally thin lips, dermal fillers may be used to add volume to this area.
