Have you ever thought about why you start to get wrinkles on your face and other parts of your body as you get older? If you are interested in doing something about those wrinkles, this is a good question to consider. One of the main reasons has to do with the fact that you lose facial volume as you age. However, this does not mean that you have no options to fight the process. We invite you to learn how you can restore lost facial volume with dermal fillers.
In order to understand how dermal fillers work, it is good for you to think about a fully inflated balloon. When a balloon is fully inflated with air, the rubber is pulled tight. There are absolutely no wrinkles and the entire balloon is smooth. Over time, the balloon may lose some of the air. What happens to the rubber? It starts to change in texture. It is no longer as tight. There may now be wrinkles. These exact same things can happen to a person’s skin as they get older.
Other things affect a person’s skin as they age as well. For example, the healthy substances that your skin produced in abundance in your younger years are no longer being produced at the same rate as they once were. You have very likely heard of collagen. This is an essential substance in your skin when it comes to having youthful and attractive skin. Elastin and hyaluronic acid are also important. Since they are no longer being produced at the same rate as they used to, this leads to wrinkles, a loss of facial volume, and other problems.
Dermal fillers are designed to address static wrinkles. The first benefit that they provide is by giving immediate lift and volume in areas where volume has been lost. Think of that balloon. When more air is put into the balloon, it looks full again. So dermal fillers can very gently be injected into areas where you have lost facial volume. The second benefit that you receive is that healthy substances are introduced into your skin. So the hyaluronic acid and other substances that you have lost can be replaced.
