Signs of facial aging can include hollowness, sagging skin, wrinkles, and creases. Previous generations often turned to creams and other topical cosmetics to help restore their youthful appearance, but today we have something far more effective. DFW Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth, TX, offers dermal fillers as an elegant and non-invasive way to minimize the signs of facial aging.
Dermal Fillers Explained
Though different dermal fillers work in different ways, most of them provide your body with hyaluronic acid. Though our bodies produce hyaluronic acid naturally, that production tends to diminish over time, which is one of the primary causes of lost volume. An injection of dermal fillers may also stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, restoring those areas of lost volume while also smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
Type of Dermal Fillers
JUVÉDERM® DERMAL FILLERS
The FDA-approved Juvederm® gel targets smile lines and folds around the mouth. Composed of natural hyaluronic acid and lidocaine for reduced pain, it instantly restores skin volume and smooths out wrinkles.
What Concerns Do Dermal Fillers Address?
During your initial consultation, you will have a chance to tell us more about your aesthetic goals, and our team can then recommend the dermal filler best suited to your needs. Some of the concerns that we can address with fillers include:
- Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines.
- Lost volume or a “hollow” appearance, especially around the cheeks.
- Loose or sagging skin around the jawline.
What Concerns Do Dermal Fillers Not Address?
While dermal fillers offer much utility, there are some aesthetic concerns that fillers simply cannot address. These include:
- Excessive loose skin under the chin or around the jowls.
- Structural issues with the face or nose.
- Certain types of scarring, including acne scars.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
While dermal fillers can offer powerful results, those results are temporary. Depending on the type of filler and your body’s level of receptivity to it, the results from your dermal filler treatment can last anywhere from three months to a year. You can also return to our practice for maintenance injections to touch up or maintain your results.
