How dermal fillers can improve your appearance

As we get older and our skin ages, it can lose its elasticity making our skin wrinkle and sag. If you want to retain a youthful appearance, dermal fillers can help to renew your skin. Dermal fillers can plump and fill out the skin by smoothing nose to mouth grooves, forehead lines, frown furrows, lipstick lines, acne pits and crow’s feet.

Dermal fillers can usually treat minor to moderate lines and wrinkles and some of these areas include the eyes, nose and mouth. As the treatment is non-invasive, no recovery time is necessary.

Restylane is a clear crystal gel form of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally within the body. Hyaluronic acid holds water which can add volume to the skin. Restylane is injected into the skin using a thin needle and its results are immediate, with follow-up treatment being recommended every 2-4 weeks. The treatment time usually lasts for 10 to 30 minutes and it’s a relatively painless procedure so no anaesthesia need be used. Many people find they can get results which last up to a year.

Sculptra is a dermal filler treatment which we can use to restore facial volume lost during the body’s natural ageing process. This injectable volumising treatment contains poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate the body’s own collagen, smooth out lines and wrinkles while improving lost facial volume to give a more youthful appearance. The results are more gradual, last longer and will give a more natural look, with an average of three injection sessions over a few months, lasting more than two years.
