Some of us are quite lucky when it comes to facial aesthetics. Fuller cheeks, perfectly shaped lips, smooth and even-toned skin, etc. are some of the main facial characteristics that everyone wishes to have. When you don’t have them naturally, you can always get the help of a professional expert. One particular external agent that would get you the perfect facial features is a dermal filler.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to reduce wrinkles that appear on them. They are made from hyaluronic acid, a chemical that is naturally found in our skin. The natural production of this chemical in the body reduces as one age, which is why wrinkles start to appear. When dermal fillers are injected into the skin, they fill in the wrinkles and thereby smooth out the skin. Your skin would look more hydrated and plump, giving you an aesthetic uplift.
How long does the effect last?
Dermal fillings are gaining popularity in recent times owing to the fact that a single injection produces an effect that lasts for several months together. All it takes is a single visit to the dentist’s office and you could flaunt your beautiful face. After a period of three to six months, you may require another injection. During the long run, the injections may stimulate the production of collagen that gives you fresher-looking skin. The best quality fillers appear so natural that anyone who looks at you wouldn’t be able to determine their presence underneath your skin.
Fillers to prevent the occurrence of wrinkles
Why wait to get dermal fillers until they get the better of your facial appearance? Dentists recommend getting fillers at a relatively younger age as it reduces the chances of premature aging. This has been quite evident in recent days as the number of patients under the age of 30 seeking fillers have risen significantly. In fact, it is a more effective way to stay clear of aging.
Are dermal fillers harmful?
Dermal fillers are essentially composed of chemicals that are naturally present in the human skin. Hence, there wouldn’t be any negative reaction that is allergic once the filler is injected. Over a period of a few months, the filler will naturally be broken down by cells of the body. However, injecting the filler doesn’t permanently avoid aging, but keeps your skin from developing wrinkles for a brief period of time.
