Many people will appreciate the feeling of disappointment when someone looks in the mirror and sees that their face is succumbing to the ageing process. Fine lines and wrinkles that start off as the result of a dehydrated face can soon become a permanent fixture, once the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid has depleted enough. While you can eat certain foods to boost the amount of hyaluronic acid or related beneficial nutrients, there is only so much that you can achieve. Dentists are now offering dermal fillers W1 as another way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to enhance your overall appearance when you smile.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an alternative treatment to having plastic surgery. This is a non-invasive procedure that involves injections of FDA approved hyaluronic acid gels that do not come from animal sources. They are injected into the areas of concern to plump up the skin by relaxing the muscles in the face. It is not a permanent treatment and you may need to have further treatments after 6 to 12 months. The procedure lasts a few minutes, but has long-lasting results!
What areas can dermal fillers target?
Dermal fillers can be used to target fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but they can also be utilised for treating the lips, hands and neck. Contouring is another reason for using dermal fillers and this means that you can change the shape of your face, for example. For instance, if you wanted more prominent cheekbones, they could be targeted with dermal filler injections.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Dermal fillers are considered to be safe and as they are non-permanent, you are not obliged to continue with further treatments if you decide they are not for you. There are potential side effects (as with any treatment) and you can discuss this with your dentist to make a fully informed decision about whether to proceed with having them. Dentists are well placed to carry out dermal filler treatments, because they are experts in facial anatomy, which means that they have in-depth knowledge and understanding of how to inject the gels into the tiny facial muscles. Also, they will be able to carry out the procedure in the sterile environment that you would expect for such a treatment. During the treatment, you may feel some discomfort, but it shouldn’t be painful. Furthermore, after the treatment has finished, there may be some redness, swelling or a small amount of bruising, but this shouldn’t last long either. Again, a dentist will be able to advise you about any side effects and will be able to deal effectively with any issues that you may be concerned about. It is rare to have side effects with hyaluronic acid fillers, though.
Should I get dermal fillers?
As with any treatment, it is highly advisable that you have an initial consultation with your dentist before deciding upon whether or not to undergo a dermal filler procedure. Your dentist will be able to examine your areas of concern and advise upon your specific needs and the treatment that would be right for you.
For natural looking results, dermal fillers can be effective and as they are not permanent, they could be worth a try for reclaiming your youth!
