Four Important Things to Know About Dermal Fillers
While not everyone is lucky enough to have naturally full cheeks, smooth skin, or plump lips, fortunately, with a little help from the dermatology experts at Birmingham, MI’s AMAE Med Spa, such facial features can be obtained by anyone through dermal fillers. Facial fillers are a readily available, long lasting, and natural-looking option for anyone interested in giving their physical appearance that extra pop. In this article, we will discuss everything a person needs to know before undergoing dermal fillers.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers are Natural
Facial fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm are made with hyaluronic acid, which provides skin with a plump, hydrated look due to its moisture-storing properties. While there are creams available that contain hyaluronic acid, the only way to restore lost volume is through injectable dermal fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally within the skin. As a person ages, the levels of hyaluronic acid in their skin can diminish significantly, which can result in more intense wrinkling and volume loss. Restylane and Juvéderm and other dermal fillers use a synthetic form of the hyaluronic acid, that is the same as the natural substance in the human body.
Dermal Fillers Last Up to 2 Years
The recent surge in the popularity of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers is their ability to diminish wrinkles after a single visit to our Birmingham, MI-med spa. And, depending on the location of the injection sight and type of dermal filler used, results will last for as long as six months up to two years!
For example, patients looking to remove moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds should consider Juvéderm Vollure Dermal Fillers, which last up to 18 months -the longest lasting dermal filler for wrinkles and lines on the market! And, Juvéderm Voluma – a dermal filler designed for cheeks and sagging skin- has yielded results that last up to two years.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers also stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, which means the benefits of the fillers will result in long-lasting, youthful-looking skin – even after the fillers have worn off!
Dermal Fillers are Natural Looking
Some less skilled providers of dermal fillers leave their patients with obviously-unnatural features such as “duck lips.” But at at AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI we provide subtle, natural-looking changes to our patients’ appearance. People will notice how beautiful, refreshed or youthful you look – but no one will think you’ve “had work done.”
The goal of undergoing dermal fillers is to look as though you were born with naturally beautiful features – and that aging has not taken a toll on you. Good dermal filler injections remove wrinkles and enhance the shape of the patient’s natural features without attempting to change the appearance completely. Our goal is for all of our dermal filler patients to look like the best version of themselves, not a completely different person.
Dermal Filler Technology Has Improved
As an example, dermal fillers were previously injected directly into the nasolabial folds (also known as “laugh lines”), resulting in wrinkles being literally filled in. Now, thanks to advancements in medical technology, the goal of a dermal filler procedure is to lift and plump other parts of the face around the wrinkles, resulting in a much more natural-looking appearance.
As a person ages, their bones get thinner, their skin becomes less elastic, and they lose collagen! It’s a triple-problem that causes the skin and the pads of fat sliding down – as well as causing the skin to sag lower – and the folds at the bottom of the cheeks to deepen significantly.
But through dermal fillers, such as Restylane Lyft, a simple injection near the cheekbone is all it takes to lift the face and restore fullness, allowing patients to wave goodbye to deep “puppet” or smile lines.
