Anti-ageing treatments are on the rise, as an increasing number of effective treatments become more readily available. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular anti-ageing treatment options on the market. But what exactly do they do, and why should you choose dermal fillers? Well, dermal fillers are very effective at tackling a range of skin and structural issues that emerge as we age. And these fillers can be applied to a variety of facial areas, to achieve a range of positive outcomes. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s leading professional dermal filler experts. And this is our guide to the advantages of dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable substance, like collagen, which is applied directly to problem areas in the face. By injecting the filler, you can replace pockets of fat and collagen that have been lost during the natural ageing process. This results in hydrated, radiant, and younger looking skin.
So, why should you choose dermal fillers? Anti-wrinkle injections like Botox, and chemical peels, are two other fantastic options for fighting the signs of ageing, but dermal fillers can also offer a variety of advantages. These advantages include:
- Shaping your face – filler can be used in areas like the cheek and jaw to add contour to your face, and temporarily alter your facial shape and structure. This is very effective, as when we age, our skin can lose elasticity, and begin to sag. As a result, hollow patches can appear, and the face can lose some of the defining structure. The filler material will be injected into these areas, adding volume and replacing lost collagen.
- Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles – one of the most common problems that people resent about ageing, is the associated wrinkles. When we age, our skin loses elasticity, and this means that it will stop bouncing back into place when we form an expression. This is how expression lines and wrinkle occur. Dermal fillers can effectively fill lines and hollows left by folded skin, replacing hydration and collagen in the area. This will leave your face smoother, younger looking and fully hydrated.
- Natural looking – dermal fillers applied by experienced professionals will also look natural and subtle. This doesn’t mean that you wont see a result from dermal fillers, just that your fillers will be perfectly in proportion to your face and symmetry, to look as natural as possible. Lip enhancements that are over heavy on either the top or bottom lip for example, will not look natural or symmetrical.
- No down time – because dermal fillers are non surgical, they can easily be applied in the middle of your busy day. You wont need to rest or recuperate for days on end. Instead you can get back to your routine, and your schedule, straight after treatment.
