What You Need to Know About Dermal Filler

When it comes to maintaining a youthful-looking face, supple, smooth skin and volume in the facial area, dermal filler is a fantastic solution.

Today, dermal filler is more popular than it ever has been. And not just for folks over the age of 40 or 50. Younger adults are also seeing the benefits of dermal filler and how it can naturally enhance their faces for a fresher, rejuvenated look.

If you are considering dermal filler, there are some key points you should keep in mind. Read on for more.

A great alternative to invasive procedures

Once upon a time, the only treatment for aging faces was a facelift. Nowadays, there is much more to choose from by the way of noninvasive and minimally invasive options. Men and women alike are realizing the benefits of dermal filler to treat sagging, lifeless skin…and saving a bundle of money and recovery time compared to a facelift.

Dermal filler restores volume

Dermal fillers are comprised up hyaluronic acid, a component naturally present in the body. It is used to add volume to areas of the face where volume has been lost with time — including the cheeks and temples. Dermal filler can look completely natural when injected properly and most patients find that they look refreshed and rested, in addition to more youthful. Results are typically instant with dermal filler and full results can be seen in two weeks.

It is long-lasting

Another reason people find dermal filler a beneficial anti-aging treatment is because it can last up to nine months. Though it’s long-lasting, it doesn’t last forever. To maintain your volume, you’ll need to come in for more injections once its worn off.

Your face won’t look odd if you discontinue

Many people wonder if they will look weird or worse in some way if they stop dermal filler injections. The answer is no. Dermal filler stimulates collagen production in the skin, so the benefits are two-fold and you will look better after a dermal filler treatment (even after its worn off) than you would have had you not had one.
