Dermal fillers are a popular aesthetic treatment option. But while these are well known for their volume increasing benefits, dermal fillers can also help to rejuvenate the skin. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s leading aesthetic practitioners. And we offer a range of high quality aesthetic treatments and procedures, including chemical peels, dermaplaning and dermal fillers. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about rejuvenating your skin with dermal fillers.
So, how can dermal fillers rejuvenate your skin?
Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid into the skin. This hyaluronic acid is found throughout the human body, most notably concentrated in the skin. Here it plays an important role in hydrating and nourishing skin cells, maintaining healthy collagen and elastin cells. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin, the skin can be hydrated and the skin volume can be increased. So how does this treatment option help to rejuvenate your skin? Well, there are a number ways that dermal fillers can achieve this, including:
- Rejuvenating the eyes
- Hydrating and nourishing the skin
Dermal fillers can rejuvenate the skin around the eyes
As a natural part of the ageing process, the underlying facial fat pads can move and change position. This change can be more noticeable in the eye area, where this often creates a hollow under the eye. Because the skin then becomes thinner here, it can appear darker with more pronounced veins, leading to the appearance of dark circles under the eye. These can make you seem tired or unwell when you are not. And the darkness of the circles is often made worse by lifestyle factors, environmental factors and stress, as well as further ageing.
Dermal fillers here can help to rejuvenate your skin by increasing the skin volume, and bringing some much needed nourishment and hydration to the area. These are known as tear trough fillers, and they can fill in the hollowed space, while also helping to make the skin healthier, restoring your natural glow.
Dermal fillers can hydrate and nourish the skin
A lot of the focus on skin rejuvenation is focused on the skin quality. Skin with a natural glow, and skin that is healthy are often the key aims when it comes rejuvenating or revitalizing the skin. Dermal filler can help to achieve this with additional hydration and nourishment. The hyaluronic acid in dermal filler is designed to hold and retain water molecules, and this is key for keeping the skin well hydrated. Often the skin can lose hydration due to external factors like UV exposure and even wind conditions. But this can also be caused by a reduction in the amount of hyaluronic acid within the skin. Replacing this helps to replenish the hydration that the skin needs.
Dermal filler injections can also help to improve the natural production of collagen, which enables the skin cells to rejuvenate themselves, so that your skin stays looking healthier for longer.
