When you look at a person, you immediately make decisions about them. One of the first decisions you make about them is their approximate age. But have you ever been wrong? Have you ever looked at a person and thought that they were a lot older or a lot younger than what they really were? If so, it is likely that the volume in their face and the amount of wrinkles they had on their face had something to do with it.
This is because as people age, their face loses volume. For some individuals, especially those who have participated in yo-yo diets, who have been under a lot of stress and who are recovering from illness, the loss of volume happens at a younger age. Other individuals, as a result of genetics, good diet and good health, are able to postpone the loss of facial volume.
Many have turned to dermal fillers as an effective way to restore their facial volume and enjoy a younger appearance. These injectables include products like collagen and hyaluronic acid. These can minimize wrinkles, cause scar depressions to raise, enhance a person’s lip size and replace soft tissue volume.
Some are designed to last for a long time, and others are temporary. They are administered by giving small injections of the filler compound in designated areas of the face.
There are a lot of different types available and each one has a specific goal, such as reducing the signs of wrinkles or augmenting the size of a person’s lips. At Dermatology Associates, our qualified medical professionals work with our patients to determine which treatments are right for them. Most fillers will cause creases to disappear by volumizing them.
Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in this injectable simply because it is a natural substance that is already in the body, so the body has no negative reaction to it. The length of time of the session will vary depending on the size of the area being treated. Most patients are able to return to normal activity immediately after the injection is given.
Injectable fillers will last in the body from between a few months to about a year. The best results are achieved by having follow-up treatment sessions. Dermal fillers have evolved drastically over the past decade. They are a safe, reliable way for people to add volume to their face and restore their youthful appearance.
With locations in Norwood, Foxboro and Franklin, Dermatology Associates has various dermal fillers available, including Juvederm®, Voluma® and Restylane®. We will evaluate your face and help you determine which injectable is right for you.
After getting a dermal filler injection, don’t be surprised if others mistake you for being years younger than what you really are. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
