Getting to Know Your Dermal Fillers

Posted in Uncategorized | August 15, 2014

There are different types of dermal fillers, and it could be difficult to grasp every detail about them in an instant. The only real thing to note is that dermal fillers are generally a great way to bring back the youthfulness of the skin. When injected directly into the skin, dermal fillers can improve the fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, lips, mouth and other corners of the face. Furthermore, dermal fillers can effectively reduce acne scars and add more volume to a dry, lifeless face.

The Wonders Hyaluronic Acid Can Bring

Hyaluronic acid is a main component of dermal fillers. This substance is naturally produced by the body and is responsible for putting volume to the skin. However, due to aging and other contributing factors, the body already finds it difficult to produce an adequate amount of hyaluronic acid. This results to the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face.

This is where hyaluronic acid dermal fillers enter the picture. By integrating this substance in dermal fillers, the skin is ridded of wrinkles and any sagging is plumped up. What’s more is that since this is a natural substance produced by the body, dermal fillers are safe to use for the treatment of different side effects of aging. The body eventually absorbs these hyaluronic-based fillers in about six to nine months, which is why follow-up sessions can help patients enhance and extend the results.
