You cannot prevent every sign of aging; wrinkles, fine lines, and skin volume loss will eventually happen. But with age-defying skin treatments like dermal fillers, you can improve your complexion even after aging has set in.
Filler treatments restore youth and volume to your skin. Here’s what you should know about these injectables.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Fillers are injectable skin treatments that contain a key ingredient for youthful skin: hyaluronic acid. This skin-safe acid helps your skin produce more collagen — the elastic fibers that keep your complexion firm and free of wrinkles.
You lose more collagen each year as you get older, so hyaluronic acid plays a large role in combating the signs of skin aging.
Hyaluronic acid also hydrates your skin. Aging causes excessive dryness that leads to wrinkle formation and a dull complexion. Hyaluronic acid restores moisture to your complexion so you can get a more youthful glow.
Along with hyaluronic acid, many fillers contain gel-like ingredients to physically fill in wrinkles and fine lines. While hyaluronic acid boosts your skin’s collagen and elasticity, the other filler ingredients smooth and plump your complexion. Some fillers are designed exclusively to plump and volumize your lips.
Common Wrinkle Areas
Filler treatments address the most common areas for wrinkles on your face. While every patient’s skin is different, there are some universal aging concerns that fillers can improve. If you want a smoother, more youthful complexion, fillers might be right for you. Here are some common dermal filler injection areas.
Between Your Eyebrows
Your eyebrows are involved in most of the facial expressions you make every day. For this reason, your skin can start to form the dreaded “11s.” These are vertical expression lines between your eyebrows that can make you look angry, stressed, and aged. Fillers for face rejuvenation smooth these lines to give you a more relaxed appearance.
Around Your Mouth
Several types of wrinkles form around your mouth as you get older. Smoker’s lines, marionette lines, and other mouth wrinkles can significantly age your appearance.
Even if you live a healthy lifestyle and take great care of your skin, you can still develop these wrinkles. Many patients get fine vertical lines around the corners of their lips and upper lip wrinkles. Dermal fillers smooth these areas to give you a more youthful smile.
On Your Forehead
Horizontal forehead wrinkles are one of the hallmark signs of aging. Over the years, raising your eyebrows or scowling causes forehead wrinkles.
Sun exposure and damage contribute to forehead wrinkles as well. If you used tanning beds or laid out in the sun for years, you may experience forehead wrinkling. Dermal fillers smooth this area of your face to give you a more even forehead.
Plumping and Volumizing Effects
Wrinkles are not the only skin concern for aging patients. Volume loss is a problem in older age as your skin produces less collagen and becomes dehydrated. Fillers add plumpness and youthful volume back into areas that look hollow and deflated. As a result, your face takes on a rounder, younger-looking appearance.
Lip filler boosts the size and shape of your lips, giving you a kissable pout. We offer Restylane Kysse fillers for patients who want fuller, plumper lips.
You can’t control the type of lips you are born with, but you can fill them in to achieve your desired appearance. Restylane Kysse cushions your lips with hydrating hyaluronic acid and a gel-like consistency to soften and volumize your pout.
Under Your Eyes
Your under-eye area is vulnerable to volume loss as you get older. This creates the “hollow” appearance many aging people experience.
Under-eye fillers smooth the area and add volume to help you look fresher and more awake. This gives you a more youthful appearance overall. Restylane L corrects under-eye and cheek volume loss to boost your facial aesthetics.
Flat-looking cheeks can give your entire face a more aged appearance. If you want to plump and round out your cheeks to make them look more youthful, dermal fillers can help.
Fillers restore youthful volume to your cheeks by boosting collagen production and filling in flat spots. Round, full cheeks are a sign of health and youthfulness, and fillers help you achieve that look.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is our premium cheek filler treatment. This filler gives your cheeks and mid-face a lifted appearance while filling in any wrinkles and fine lines. We use precise injection techniques to contour your cheeks to create a slim but full appearance. Juvéderm Voluma XC lasts for about two years.
How Long Do Your Youthful Results Last?
Depending on the type of filler you get, your results will last between one and two years. After the two-year mark, most dermal fillers have completely dissolved. This is because your body naturally metabolizes these hyaluronic acid injectables.
Long after your injection appointment, the hyaluronic acid in the fillers will stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin. You can continue to see youthful results by getting additional filler injections.
