Facial volumizing treatments are intended to plump up areas of the skin that are thinning and creasing. Smile lines and other dynamic wrinkling are caused by a loss of moisture and fat beneath the dermal layers. Dermal fillers are an alternative solution to the problem of lost facial volume. This type of treatment is long-lasting, and we assure our clients that a number of treatment options are available.
Why Dermal Fillers Are An Effective Treatment
Added volume to the face means introducing a solution that will either promote the creation of collagen or will draw in and hold moisture. As we age and mature, our body simply doesn’t produce as much collagen as it once did, and the result is skin that is more prone to creasing, folding, and wrinkling. The tissues that lie beneath the skin hold less moisture than when we were young, and this results in skin that now lies much closer to the facial muscles.
Depending on the injectable filler chosen by us and the client, the improvement will be the result of added moisture. This adds volume by lifting the skin surface.
What Clients Need To Know
Dermal fillers are injected using a thin needle, therefore the treatment is similar to BOTOX® injections. A mild topical numbing agent may be applied to lessen the discomfort. We advise our clients to refrain from using painkillers for a few days before receiving the injections because this lessens the chances of bruising at the injection sites.
If a natural acid dermal filler is used, we inject it beneath thinning skin near the corners of the mouth or around the eyelids. The solution draws in moisture, plumps and lifts the skin surface. These procedures also do not require a special post-treatment regimen on the part of the client.
Advantages Of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are unlikely to cause a negative reaction by the body. Most types of acid fillers and microbead fillers are flushed from the body after several months. Dermal fillers are popular because they don’t involve skin resurfacing or skin repositioning.
Add Volume To Your Face
If you’re dealing with smile lines, facial skin creases, or brittle skin surface, a dermal filler is likely to restore volume and moisture, as well as return your visage to its more youthful appearance. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at Skin Deep Laser MD in Fort Worth.
