Patients who are looking to restore volume and fullness to their skin while correcting the appearance of moderate facial wrinkles will want to take time to learn about the advantages of nonsurgical dermal fillers. At Georgia Dermatology Partners, we understand that maintaining your youthful look is important to you. With dermal fillers, many patients can avoid surgical interventions and achieve the results they desire with lasting improvements.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are best described as injectables that are a gel-like consistency. They are often formulated with hyaluronic acid, which works by attracting water molecules to add volume. By adding volume to lines and wrinkles, it smooths the skin and offers a more youthful appearance that patients want to achieve. Dermal fillers are safe, affordable, and effective at reducing lines and wrinkles for several months.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Most patients will enjoy the results of their dermal fillers for several months. To maintain the appearance, patients will want to continue to have fillers injected as needed. This can slow the process of aging on the skin and allow patients to appear youthful longer.
What about plastic surgery?
While cosmetic plastic surgery is always an option, it is better suited for patients with severe volume loss who want to see lasting changes. Facelifts and brow lifts are surgical alternatives to the use of dermal fillers for long-time improvement. However, there are risks and costs associated with plastic surgery that often turn patients off to the idea. Plus, patients will need significant downtime to recovery from their procedure and will often have scarring. Dermal fillers provide a solution that is minimally invasive, within one’s budget, and lasts several months without surgical interventions. It is best for those with mild to moderate signs of aging that patients would like to correct in the least invasive way.
