Are you unhappy with your appearance due to wrinkles that have developed because of sun damage or the aging process? Many people choose to have a facelift procedure to correct problems like this, but there are alternatives available that do not involve surgery or significant downtime. One such alternative involves the use of an anti-wrinkle filler.
A Look at Facial Fillers
Anti-wrinkle fillers are increasing in popularity because they offer a safer alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. These treatments are usually quick and take place on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our office. Since they do not involve incisions, healing time is much faster and there is less risk of complications, which is a factor in any type of surgery. There are various types of anti-wrinkle facial fillers that are available today for the treatment of wrinkles.
How the Treatments Work
Before any type of treatment is performed, we first consult with the client and get a good idea of their wants and needs. From there, we can select an anti-wrinkle filler that is likely to bring about the best results.
During typical anti-wrinkle filler treatment at our office, the filler of choice is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. Topical numbing agents may be used to increase patient comfort. Once the treatment is over, the client is free to resume most normal activities right away. This is an extremely convenient treatment for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is produced in sufficient amounts when you are young, but it is easy to become deficient in the substance when you are older. Since this substance internally moisturizes your skin cells, its loss leads to dryer skin that develops fine lines and wrinkles.
This process can be reversed when you have hyaluronic acid injected in the form of a gel. Common treatment areas include the forehead, cheeks and the area under the eyes. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
Once injected, the hyaluronic acid gel begins to immediately correct the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. It will continue to attract and maintain moisture levels within your skin for months to come. At this time, a follow-up treatment will help you maintain your results.
