Banishing Wrinkles with Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a popular choice when it comes to seeking youthful, plump skin and a fresh appearance.
Whether you’re just thinking about getting fillers or you want to know more, there is one thing for certain -- dermal fillers can help you banish wrinkles.
The Inevitable Wrinkles of Time
As you age, the elasticity in your skin decreases, resulting in sagging. You also develop laugh and smile lines around your mouth and nose.
Furrows are another unavoidable result of time. Not to mention those “11s” that show up between your eyebrows.
The result of these lines and wrinkles? The disappearance of youthful-looking skin.
Enter Dermal Fillers
These days, though, you can reduce the signs of aging by restoring your skin’s hydration and fullness with injectables called dermal fillers. Here at Primary Medical Associates of Long Island, we offer a number of types of fillers that perform different functions, including smoothing out wrinkles. Dermal fillers may contain a variety of substances, such as hyaluronic acid, which hydrate your skin, volumizing and softening it for a youthful appearance.
Here are some of the main benefits of fillers:
One of the best advantages of dermal fillers is that they provide immediate results. As soon as you have your injections, you’ll notice a transformation in your appearance.
What’s more, there’s no recovery time. You can complete a filler treatment in under an hour and get back to your daily life.
The side effects are minimal, too. You may experience a little redness or swelling around the injection site, but that usually goes away on its own within a couple of hours.
Fillers provide long-lasting effects. Typically, you will stay looking youthful and wrinkle-free for around anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on which dermal filler product was used. With some treatments, you may want to book a quick touch-up appointment in about 4-6 months after your first injection.
As you age, your skin loses fat and collagen, or what we prefer to call your youthful plumpness.
When that happens, the face starts to look hollowed-out and wrinkles are more noticeable. Fillers can counteract these issues by plumping your skin to create fuller cheeks and fewer lines.
