Get Younger Looking Skin; The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

November 26, 2012

 

As we approach the holidays, we all want to look and feel our best, but the demands of the season can strain the body and consume time normally spent on ourselves.  Need a quick solution for younger looking skin? Try dermal fillers from Advanced Laser and Skin Clinic.

Pros and Cons of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive rejuvenation treatment that require little to no recovery time. A liquid compound is injected into specific target areas, most commonly the lips, the cheeks, and beneath the eyes. The injections immediately hydrate and lift the soft tissue to give your skin a natural, youthful appearance.

 

Dermal fillers correct the signs of aging, but this treatment cannot stop the aging process altogether. To maintain wrinkle-free skin, you will need to commit to multiple injections, or the face will return to its original state. Unlike a facelift, this treatment does not remove sagging skin. Dermal fillers can be used in combination with the Botox injection.

 

Possible side effects include:

  • Temporary Swelling.
  • Rejection of the filler material.
  • Infection of the area.
  • Redness, sensitivity or itching.

To reduce the risks associated with this treatment, hire a certified nurse or doctor who has experience administering these injections.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Although there are many products on the market, Advanced Laser and Skin Clinic use only hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers:

  • Juvederm.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus.
  • Restylane.
  • Perlane.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body to retain water. Other products are calcium-based or harvested from body fat.  Dermal fillers are selected based on the severity of the facial lines and folds. Discuss your desired look with a professional to determine which injection is right for you.

 

With one treatment, you can have younger, fuller skin by the holidays. Be the envy of your peers, contact Advanced Laser and Skin Clinic to schedule a consultation today.
