Your skin is one of the most visible parts of your body, and having it looking less than ideal just won’t do. With so many anti-aging treatments around, finding one that will make your skin look youthful and supple once more is relatively simple. Dermal fillers are a great example of a technology that has made it easier to look young, no matter what age you might be. At PMN Health and Wellness, we offer dermal fillers to our clients at a reasonable cost. But what are dermal fillers, and why should you consider them?
Exploring Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a remarkable new technology that allows you to use injections to “fill in” the areas of skin that no longer have the elasticity they might have had in your youth. Aside from wrinkles and lines, they can also fill in hollows on your face, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Most filler compounds are made from something called hyaluronic acid. WebMD tells us that this compound is found naturally in our joints and our eyes, and it can serve as a cushion and a lubricant for our body. When used as a dermal filler, the cushioning property helps to fill out wrinkles and lines.
Where Can You Treat With Dermal Fillers?
The face is typically the area people treat with dermal fillers. Injections can focus on the nasolabial folds (the lines between your nose and lips), under the eyes, cheeks, and lips. Dermal fillers can help to fill out the area under the skin. This filling removes those lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking and feeling much younger.
What is a Procedure Like?
Dermal filler procedures don’t take too long. a typical procedure is over in fifteen to thirty minutes and requires the professional to inject the filler compound under the skin. The small needle is usually used with a local anesthesia. After the procedure, you might face minor redness, but this usually fades quickly. These minor side effects should disappear within a day or two, leaving you with beautiful, flawless skin.
How Long do Dermal Fillers Last?
Like most procedures in the realm of beauty improvement, dermal fillers have a shelf life. Some fillers last as short as six months, with others lasting up to eighteen months. The length of time the treatment remains useful depends on how long your body takes to absorb the filler chemical. You’ll probably start seeing the lines slowly creep back in, telling you it’s time for another treatment.
