The Art of Erasing Fine Lines: How Dermal Fillers Can Help

Cosmetic surgeries are expensive and while they improve the appearance of the face, they don’t focus on aging skin. Thanks to dermal fillers, more people can turn back the clock and look years younger with injectables that simultaneously improve the texture of the skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The History of Non-Invasive Alternatives

As we age, the body loses its ability to produce natural elasticity to the skin, so fine lines and wrinkles appear. Previously, the only remedy was cosmetic surgery—a facelift, feared and dreaded by most. With the creation of dermal fillers in the 1980s, they quickly became used all over the world and offered a less invasive alternative for facial rejuvenation. In 2000, Hyaluronic acid-based fillers were approved by the FDA for cosmetic use and are still the base for many injectables.

The Power of Fillers

There are several different kinds of fillers designed to treat various facial areas and stages of aging. Overall, patients with skin inconsistencies can expect their fine line reduction treatment to clear up issues like wrinkles, textures, scars, or sagging.

Other fillers are used to plump thinning lips or give a fuller appearance to hollow cheeks. These fillers contain substances similar to the body’s natural format and are administered by a fine needle into the appointed area in as little as 30 minutes and produce an instant more youthful result.

No matter the filler type, patients can expect to finish their session in less than an hour. These are outpatient procedures, so you can return to your routine within the same day with minor adjustments. Mild tenderness is to be expected, and our expert injectors will notify you of proper care to ease any discomfort.

Types of Fillers

Some patients may seek to reduce their lines and wrinkles but do not want added volume. In these cases, injectable options are available to remedy their concerns:

Juvéderm: a hyaluronic acid-based injection that can achieve a brighter, more rejuvenated look to the undereye

Sculptra: a poly-L-lactic acid designed to treat smile lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles

Restylane: a hyaluronic acid solution that adds definition and sculpts the lower face

Cosmetic injectables can last a few months, a year, or longer, depending on the type of filler used, but further injections will be needed to maintain a constantly youthful appearance.

Although fillers have an immediate effect, they need about two weeks to completely settle down, so it is advisable to book your appointment well in advance of any planned social events. Aftercare of dermal filler treatments is very important and should be adhered to for the best outcome. These include keeping well hydrated, no exercise for 24 hours, no NSAID medications, and no hot showers or sleeping on your face.
