4 Benefits of Dermal Fillers

4 Benefits of Dermal Fillers

As you age, changes to the skin lead to dullness, sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. A decrease in vital skin components, including collagen, elastin, and substances that hydrate the skin. From smile lines, to a sunken appearance, age-related skin changes can rob you of your fresh, youthful appearance. 

While taking good care of your skin can delay and minimize age-related changes, there’s no way to avoid the natural aging process. 

If you’re looking to rejuvenate your facial appearance, dermal fillers are an excellent option.  

Here at WestPort MediSpa, board-certified physician Dana Brownell, MD, helps men and women look and feel their very best with a range of cosmetic treatments, including leading brand dermal fillers Juvéderm® and Restylane®.

Learn more about the ways dermal fillers can revitalize and restore a youthful appearance. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are perfect for restoring lost volume to restore shallow contours, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and soften the appearance of scars. Most dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm® is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid and water. 

Juvéderm adds volume to fill out and soften your face, relaxing wrinkles and rejuvenating your facial appearance. People who choose dermal fillers enjoy the following major benefits: 

#1: Results are fast

Whether you’re looking to smooth out fine lines or add volume to thin lips, you’ll enjoy your results within 7-14 days after your treatment. What’s more, you’ll enjoy the results of your treatment for 12 months or more. Dr. Brownell can perform further touchups to extend your results. 

Treatment itself is also quick and can fit into the busiest of schedules. In fact, dermal filler treatment is sometimes called a “lunchtime facelift.” After your treatment you can return to your regular daily routine immediately without extended downtime.

#2: Results are natural-looking

Dermal fillers provide subtle, yet noticeable results that when performed by a licensed specialist look natural. This is one of the major benefits of choosing dermal fillers. Patients enjoy natural-looking results that don’t scream “cosmetic treatment.” 

Most people who seek to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles want to simply restore their natural youthfulness without looking completely different, and dermal fillers do just that. 

With dermal fillers, most people won’t even know that you had anything done: The results are virtually undetectable. All they’ll notice is that you look fresher, more rested, and more youthful. 

#3: Treatment mixes well with other

Dermal fillers are often combined with other treatments like Botox injections to provide the most natural results. Dr. Brownell can also combine dermal fillers with intense pulsed light photorejuvenation to improve the texture and tone of your skin. 

During your initial consultation, Dr. Brownell will recommend the most appropriate treatment plan depending on your skin’s current appearance and your aesthetic goals. 

#4: Good for your skin

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring substance in the skin. It’s found in connective tissue throughout your body. It plays a vital role in keeping the skin hydrating. Skin aging is associated with moisture loss. When hyaluronic acid is injected, it feels and looks natural and is good for your skin. It’s yet another reason to consider choosing dermal fillers to restore a youthful facial appearance. 

Dermal fillers are a popular choice and for good reason. This nonsurgical treatment relaxes fine lines and restores youthful volume to your face, leaving you with a fresher, younger-looking facial appearance.
