Laugh lines, perioral lines, marionette lines, crow’s feet, and tear troughs. Now, we have a complete vocabulary to describe wrinkles and folds in aging faces. But the other side of the wrinkle and fold story is the different types of dermal filler we can use to minimize those wrinkles and folds. Let us smooth your skin and restore its fullness. If you see sagging skin, thinning cheeks, or laugh lines (when there is nothing funny!), fix it with a liquid facelift!
Injectable Dermal Fillers are a Liquid Facelift
While traditional facelift surgery pulls your skin to a new position. Then it anchors your skin with stitches as it heals. Dermal fillers are a minimally-invasive treatment that lets the skin stay in its natural position while the Doctor injects a filler under the skin to “fill” the dips and divots from below. Fillers encourage natural healing and growth of new collagen to prolong the new smooth skin surface. Because fillers are not strictly surgical…no knives need to be applied…their the filler’s composition is key to the correction’s effectiveness and longevity.
Temporary Fillers Can Last a Long Time
On a scale of short-lived to long-lived, manufacturers create temporary dermal fillers largely of hyaluronic acid (HA). A natural material sometimes called a “goo” molecule, HA is a carbohydrate polymer that occurs between cells and in the lubricating fluid in joints. It is also a major component of skin, which it helps to repair, for instance, after a sunburn.
Injured skin exposes tissues to infection, making it vital that healing be rapid. Hyaluronic acid acts as an important moderator of an inflammatory response, as HA can protect against free-radical damage to cells. The natural polymer occurs in the most internal layer of the skin and in the margin of a wound, where it helps reduce scarring.
In time, your body eventually absorbs dermal fillers containing principally hyaluronic acid. To maintain your desired correction, you need to re-apply them periodically. The FDA has approved temporary dermal filler for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and skin folds.
Several absorbable dermal fillers are FDA-approved for use in lip and cheek augmentation and correction of contour deficiencies.
“I Like the Way I Look”
All fillers are temporary. Some may last longer because they contain materials that are absorbed more slowly or not absorbed at all. These are FDA-approved ONLY for the correction of nasolabial folds and cheek acne scars in patients over the age of 21.
