Are your facial features starting to droop and sag? If so, there are a variety of dermal fillers on the market that can refresh your face, and restore a youthful look. But since facial aging is caused by such diverse factors, you may be wondering if dermal fillers can help with facial aging.
Signs of facial aging
Volume loss and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are classic signs of facial aging, and occur due to changes in the structural components of the skin. Over time, the skin produces less collagen and elastin, which are vital proteins that provide necessary support for the skin and keep it plump and elastic.
How dermal fillers help with facial aging
Dermal fillers help with facial aging by restoring youthful volume to areas such as the cheeks and temples, and softening lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, particularly those derived from hyaluronic acid (HA) such as Restylane and Juvederm, are routinely used to restore facial volume and plump wrinkles. HA is a naturally occurring substance that works by attracting and retaining water. Therefore when it is injected into the hollow areas of the face it adds volume, and smooths wrinkles.
Fillers can also be used to augment lips that have lost volume due to age, and fill in deep creases and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers can provide beautiful results for patients wanting a non-surgical anti-aging solution.
