It would be amazing if we could avoid aging altogether. Unfortunately, cosmetic technology has not reached the point where this is possible. The next best option is to age gracefully. Thankfully, there are a lot of cosmetic solutions that make this possible. One of the most popular non-surgical options is dermal fillers.
What Do Dermal Fillers Do?
Dermal fillers allow people to have a younger appearance, smoother skin and fewer fine lines. This is done for a fraction of what getting a traditional facelift would cost. The results of dermal filler procedures can last from between four months to up to one year.
Dermal Fillers Versus BOTOX®
BOTOX® is a popular anti-aging therapy. It works by relaxing the muscles in certain parts of the face that are responsible for dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, fill in the wrinkles or lines on a person’s face. As a result, trouble spots are not merely hidden or relaxed, but they actually disappear.
Dermal fillers have been used by many to increase the volume of their face. When a person ages, the areas in their face around their temples, their jaw bone and their cheeks begin to lose volume.
As a person ages, they get more of a sunken, hollow appearance. The same loss of volume can affect a person’s lips, making them look thin and unattractive.
Dermal fillers can reverse volume loss. When applied to a person’s cheeks, temples and lips, it can give them the fullness that is associated with a youthful appearance.
Finding the Right Dermal Filler
Not every dermal filler is right for every wrinkle. Before beginning treatment, it is imperative that you speak to our professionals at the Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England. We have offices located in Portland and Waterville. The most popular dermal fillers include hyaluronic acid. These fillers have been known to produce positive results for between a few months to over a year.
Injections of these type stimulate the body’s ability to create collagen. This in turn minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A lot of evidence shows that the longer dermal fillers are used, the less fillers are needed to achieve the same results.
Mankind is still searching for the fountain of youth. Until that discovery is made, dermal fillers provide a way for people to retain their youthful appearance and face the aging process with grace.
