Skin degeneration has long been one of the greatest banes of beauty. Exposure to the sun, sickness and the inevitability of age can all make undesirable issues like fine lines and wrinkles appear.
The problem is that these conditions extend past the skin. They often involve collagen, fat, muscles, hard structures beneath the skin and so on. This means that a permanent treatment requires a long-term solution designed to address the problem.
Dermal fillers offer a way to treat these problems without the need for surgery. These non-invasive wrinkle treatment procedures can alleviate the problems caused by imperfections in the skin to make your skin look smoother, younger and more lively than it would appear otherwise.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers come in varying forms, which dictates what types of wrinkles they are best at treating. The general purpose of dermal fillers remains the same among the different treatments available: they replace areas where volume has been lost.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the more popular fillers for treating minor wrinkles and lines around the lips, eyes and nose. It works by adding molecules that retain water into the skin, which helps to replace missing volume. It tends to support collagen growth over time, which can help it act as a more permanent solution.
The key thing to understand about dermal fillers is that they are not designed to be permanent solutions despite the ability for certain fillers to have some permanent effects. Dermal fillers tend to be absorbed by the body given enough time or movement of the skin.
Why Should You Consider Dermal Fillers for Wrinkle Treatment?
There are a number of benefits that dermal fillers bring to patients. These benefits are unique due to the nature surrounding this type of wrinkle treatment. Some reasons to consider dermal fillers for wrinkle correction include:
- Avoiding surgery – Dermal fillers can help patients with minor to moderate wrinkles avoid surgery. This makes wrinkle treatment more comfortable and less intrusive than other procedures for patients.
- Fillers only require injections – Unlike other procedures, only injections are required to administer dermal fillers. For patients with compromised immune systems or an inability to quickly regrow collagen, this makes dermal fillers ideal.
- Quick turnaround times – The effects of dermal fillers are immediate. This means wrinkles can be gone in the time it takes for just one appointment.
