As you age, your skin thins out and the layer of fat that lies just beneath starts to fade. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles become more apparent. Your cheeks may hollow some and your lips may thin.
Dermal fillers smooth out your skin and replace lost volume so wrinkles even out, your lips plump up, your cheeks fill in, and you get an overall more youthful appearance. Learn all about how injectable fillers can revitalize your look. At Signature Skin Care, we offer a wide variety of fillers to meet any number of your aging skin concerns.
About dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that we inject just beneath your skin. They can reconstruct a more youthful look and smooth lines and deep wrinkles. The nice thing about dermal fillers is that they provide a dramatic change in your appearance without surgery or downtime. Plus, your skin looks smoother and you look rejuvenated, but not like you’ve had obvious work done.
Wrinkles and lines form due to a loss of natural compounds such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Pollution, sun damage, and the effects of aging magnify these creases, but dermal fillers can restore natural compounds and stimulate collagen production to smooth them.
Dermal fillers effectively diminish vertical lip lines, smooth out chin creases, reduce the appearance of lines around your nose and mouth, and plump sunken, wrinkled cheeks.
What type of filler you receive depends on your aesthetic goals and the degree of your wrinkling. We can help you determine exactly what combination of fillers will help you get the best results.
We offer the Juvederm® line of products, which contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that your skin produces to maintain plumpness and hydration. As you get older, your natural production of hyaluronic acid drops, making wrinkles more obvious. Juvederm® products are especially helpful in reducing the appearance of marionette lines, smiles lines, and vertical lip lines.
Restylane® and Belotero® are other hyaluronic acid fillers that offer similar positive results.
You may also opt for Radiesse®, which offers calcium hydroxylapatite as a filler. This naturally occurring substance is made up of calcium participles that are extremely tiny and suspended in a smooth gel. This filler is a bit thicker than hyaluronic acid fillers and does a great job in fading the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles.
Radiesse injections can also trigger your body’s natural collagen production to keep your skin looking smooth and taut naturally.
Ballafill® is another dermal filler option that stimulates collagen growth, so you get natural-looking results for up to five years. The filler contains tiny microspheres that add volume to your skin and attract collagen. The microspheres dissolve with time, but the new collagen remains to smooth wrinkles’ appearance and boost volume.
Benefits of dermal fillers
Dermal fillers do offer temporary results, giving you wrinkle reduction for six months up to five years, but retreatments are always available so you can maintain your look. Dermal fillers tend to be less costly than surgery and don’t involve the blood loss, incisions, recovery, scarring, and possible infection associated with invasive procedures.
At Signature Skin Care, we can also customize your dermal filler treatments and combine the different formulas so you look naturally younger — just like you, only rebooted.
