Find out how fillers smooth away lines and wrinkles for a more beautiful skin.
As we age our skin begins to change, and usually not in the ways that we had hoped. With the reduction of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production, it’s only natural that skin will begin to sag and lose tightness over the years. Certain areas of the face may also lose volume, increasing the amount of lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, our Fort Lauderdale, FL, dermatologists offer a simple, non-surgical solution that could take years off your appearance.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are designed to give you younger-looking skin by increasing skin’s firmness and volume while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Just as the name suggests, fillers “fill” the areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging.
In most cases, dermal fillers are made from a substance known as hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance within the body; however, as we get older our bodies stop producing this. By administering dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid into the skin, we can smooth away common wrinkles and lines such as laugh lines, crow’s feet and nasolabial folds. Furthermore, dermal fillers can also plump up volume in the cheeks or lips, and fill out superficial scars to reduce their appearance.
When will I see results?
This will depend on the type of dermal filler you choose. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid will often produce results rather instantly, but with other dermal fillers, you may have to wait a couple of days to see the full results.
How long will my results last?
Results can last anywhere from 6 months to 18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler that you and our Fort Lauderdale, FL, cosmetic dermatologists decide is right for you. If you love your new results, know that it is possible to continue getting maintenance treatments every few months to refresh your appearance and keep your results.
