With age comes greater wisdom, intellect, and free time. But, unfortunately, age also robs our skin of its youthful volume.
Thankfully, with dermal fillers, you don’t have to go under the knife to gain that facial volume back. In this article, we’ll explain how fillers can restore facial volume for a healthy, rejuvenated look.
What Causes Volume Loss With Age?
In your youth, facial fat helps keep your skin plump and supple. Unfortunately, as we age, facial volume decreases due to fat loss. This tends to leave areas like the cheeks with a hollow appearance.
This problem is worsened by decreasing collagen production over time. Collagen is a protein in the skin that gives it structure and strength. When the natural aging process leads to lower collagen levels, the skin tends to appear thinner.
How Do Dermal Fillers Combat Volume Loss?
Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that fight signs of aging. They’re particularly effective for lost facial volume, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Most dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid has a gel-like consistency and helps keep the skin hydrated and elastic.
When dermal fillers are injected into the skin, they rapidly restore volume and fullness to the face. Fillers can be used to fill out specific areas of the face, like the cheeks, as well as wrinkles and creases.
Dermal fillers are injected within minutes and provide immediate, visible results. There’s no need for downtime after the treatment, so you can return to your normal routine right away. Additionally, the results from dermal fillers can last for up to two years.
