Dermal Fillers: Anti Wrinkle Injections Birmingham
Fine lines and wrinkles signify aging, which happens to us all. But just because we age—doesn’t mean our skin necessarily has to show it.
Over time, smile lines, fine lines, and wrinkles set into your skin. These lines are a natural part of aging, and likely shows your face wearing laughter, glee, and other emotions well. However, that’s not to say they’re set in stone. On the contrary, facial lines can be filled in through the use of dermal fillers—a proven way to boost volume.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
You’ve seen the results of aging: sagging skin, hollows, fine lines, wrinkles, folds. That’s because, as we age, our skin produces less oils and proteins that uplift our skin and keeps it looking young. Dermal fillers act as a kind of ready-made replacement for this oil and collagen shortage. They’re injectable solutions that, quite literally, fill in the tissues lying beneath your skin.
Dermal fillers replenish the skin’s supply of oils and acids, which repairs lost volume and flexibility. Plus, it’s a non-surgical agent—so no worries about going under the knife or having to endure a face lift. The downtime with fillers is also virtually non-existent; you can go back to your everyday routine immediately. There’s rarely discomfort or other side effects associated after treatment, with any being minimal at most.
What Do Dermal Fillers Address?
Anti-aging rests at the heart of what a dermal filler does best. Dermal fillers sit in contrast to more invasive procedures to correct lines and wrinkles, like plastic surgery. That results in a sigh of relief for many: a noticeable upshot in skin volume and tautness without resorting to full-on surgery. Problem areas that fillers retouch include:
- Smile lines;
- Marionette lines;
- Eyebrow creases;
- Drooping eyebrows;
- Sagging jawlines;
- Sunken cheeks;
- Limp earlobes;
- Chin wrinkles and caves;
- Facial hollowness;
- Thinner lips;
- And more.
The areas addressed by fillers keep their volume and youth-like features for anywhere from the six-month mark to more than a year. After that, recurring visits will need to take place to refill and keep the desired amount of volume and uplift.
Kinds of Fillers
Dermal fillers come in an assortment of brands, which both focus on and excel at addressing different areas of the face. While brands may differ in name and specialization, many share a common, natural product aimed at adding volume: hyaluronic acid. Different filler brands include:
Juvederm. This filler specializes in smoothing wrinkles in the mid-to-upper part of the face. This filler utilizes an FDA-approved, next generation form of hyaluronic acid.
Radiesse. It boosts volume in the middle and lower portions of the face, especially the mouth and chin. This filler works to produce collagen under the skin’s surface, and shines in helping define the jawline.
Belotero. This is a dermal filler that works wonders at resolving lines around the lips, frown lines, as well as marionette lines.
Restylane. It’s a multi-purpose dermal filler that helps correct marionette lines, sunken cheekbones, and hollow cheeks and temples. It also thickens the lips for a fuller, younger look.
Sculptra. This is a filler that gets to the root of the issue, replenishing collagen beneath the skin’s surface. Gradually, wrinkles and fine lines smooth over, working into a more youthful appearance for you.
