If you’re concerned that you look older than your years then you might be interested in ways of helping to turn back the clock. This is where dermal fillers can be extremely good, and is a treatment offered by Leeds City Dentalcare. Dermal fillers can help to revitalize the way skin looks and can plump up the skin helping to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. The overall effect is to soften and smooth the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers work by helping to revitalize the skin through boosting its supply of hyaluronic acid. The fillers are made from a non-animal hyaluronic acid that is highly stable and comes in the form of an injectable gel. This type of hyaluronic acid closely mimics the natural hydrologic acid in the body so it is very safe to use.
Hyaluronic acid is an important substance that is found in just about all living organisms. It helps to lubricate moving parts of the body such as joints, but is also very important in helping the skin to regulate its water balance, and in transporting nutrients to the skin. The end result is very natural looking and subtle as dermal fillers don’t affect facial expressions. However the results of the treatment can be seen just about instantly.
Dermal fillers will not permanently smooth away wrinkles, but you can expect each treatment to last for between six and nine months. Dermal fillers are a way of aging gracefully.
Which Facial Areas Can Be Treated by Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are commonly used to help smooth out the lines between the nose and mouth, called the nasolabial folds. They are also very good at helping to smooth the frown lines in between the eyebrows which are called the glabella lines. These fillers can also be used to add shape and volume to thinning lips.
