If you are considering treatment with dermal fillers for their anti-aging effects, you will need accurate information to make an informed decision. There are quite a few skin rejuvenation treatments available, and finding the right one is key to getting the maximum benefits for your skin.
What are Dermal Fillers?
A filler is a type of skin rejuvenation solution formulated for injection into your skin to help minimize any lines or wrinkles that may be detracting from your appearance. Dermal fillers offer great results that help in cases of static lines and wrinkles. This type of treatment can also be used to forestall the need for cosmetic surgery when you are dealing with superficial wrinkles.
Would I Make a Suitable Candidate?
If your skin is currently free from active breakouts or infections, you would most likely make a good candidate for treatment with dermal fillers. Those who make good candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding what the treatment can and cannot do.
Are Dermal Fillers the Same as BOTOX®?
Some people are operating under the mistaken belief that dermal fillers and BOTOX® are one and the same. In fact, these two treatments are quite different, both in their ingredients and the way that they reduce the signs of aging. BOTOX® temporarily relaxes certain facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Fillers contain other ingredients that minimize wrinkles by increasing facial skin thickness and skin hydration. They also work on other areas of the face than BOTOX®; however, they can be used together in many cases.
Are Dermal Fillers a Good Substitute for Surgery?
Patients with light to moderate wrinkles may want to opt for dermal fillers to get significant wrinkle reduction or put off surgery. While fillers are excellent at reducing lines and wrinkles, they cannot have the dramatic effect that conventional cosmetic surgery has on severely wrinkled skin.
What Types of Fillers are There?
You have quite a few treatment choices when it comes to injectable products like fillers. One of the most common ingredients found in fillers is hyaluronic acid. This makes a better choice for those who require both increased skin volume and hydration.
