The formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face lead patients to believe they are unable to make a difference in their aging appearance without the use of cosmetic surgeries such as facelifts. Fortunately, today’s continued advancements in aesthetics allows patients to resolve fine lines and wrinkles on the face with cosmetic injectables. At Georgia Dermatology Partners, we are excited to offer dermal fillers.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers have been used for years in reducing the depth and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. After patients reach the age of 30, their body begins to naturally lose collagen and elastin from the skin. This creates skin laxity, which in turn causes the formation of lines on the face. To combat this, many patients believe their only option is the dreaded facelift, but this isn’t always the case. Patients in the early to mid-stages of aging can utilize dermal fillers. These fillers are gel-like injectables that are formulated with hyaluronic acid, an element that attracts water and adds volume where it is administered. Hyaluronic acid has been used in many of the more popular dermal fillers and continues to be a desirable ingredient to resolve the signs of aging in the face.
What can I expect from dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are administered quickly and easily in our practice, allowing patients to see immediate results. Patients can expect their dermal fillers to last many months in smoothing away wrinkles and folds, though they will need to return regularly for touch-up injections to maintain the results over time.
