Along with genetics, sun damage and aging are two of the most common factors that damage skin. As we grow older, our bodies produce less of certain substances that contribute to youthful, elastic skin. As a result our skin loses thickness, moisture and elasticity, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles that can sometimes make us appear older than we actually are.
Many older people have been wishing for safer alternatives to traditional cosmetic surgery. Although cosmetic surgery offers significant anti-aging results, it can be expensive, risky, and lead to an unnatural appearance in some cases. The good news is that many minimally invasive techniques have come online to offer significant results without the need for surgery. One such procedure is treatment with dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Sometimes called the “liquid facelift” or non-surgical facelift, treatment with dermal fillers involves the injection of certain substances into the skin to promote skin rejuvenation and replacement of old skin with new skin that displays fewer imperfections. Dermal fillers are a safe and effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, light scars, and skin dryness.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced by your own body in large amounts when you were young. As your body begins producing less hyaluronic acid that breaks down more easily, your skin begins to dry and thin. This is because hyaluronic acid has a special affinity for moisture. It is able to soak up many times its own weight in water molecules, which has a plumping and volumizing effect on your skin.
Does treatment with dermal fillers cause side effects?
In addition to offering significant skin rejuvenation results, treatment with dermal fillers has an extremely low incidence of side effects. You may experience some minor redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injection sites. These effects can be expected to resolve themselves on their own without the need for additional treatment.
