Dermal fillers are an effective tool that can help you address of wide variety of concerns that are connected to facial aging. They can smooth out some of the deep creases that form in your face as you age, especially the creases that form around the side of your mouth and stem from your nose.
Dermal fillers can even reverse the thinning of the lips that happens as you get older. As your lips get thinner, they start to develop fine lines and wrinkles. These all but disappear when dermal fillers are properly applied.
It is surprising the role that your cheeks play in determining how youthful you look. One of the prominent characteristics of a young child is that they have a full face and plump cheeks. As we age, that fullness or plumpness in our cheeks starts to disappear. As a result, we start to look older quicker. Dermal fillers address this issue by literally rounding out our cheeks or by literally giving our cheeks more volume.
One of the nice things about a lot of the dermal fillers that are on the market is that they include hyaluronic acid as one of their primary ingredients. Hyaluronic acid is a unique compound in that it has the ability to absorb more than 1,000 times its size in water. So when hyaluronic acid is injected into your cheeks, it immediately increases the volume in your cheeks, and then it allows you to have continued volume because it attracts more water to the area where it was injected.
The results of dermal fillers are temporary. They will generally last for between 3 to 18 months; however, it depends on the type of filler that is used. In some instances, they have been known to last for up to two years. The reason why the results are temporary is that since they are made from a natural product that already occurs in the body, your body will eventually just break them down. Fortunately, follow-up treatment sessions are available in order to maintain your results.
