There’s no denying the fact that a face lift really works in restoring youthfulness. It smooths out facial wrinkles by repositioning facial fat, tightening slackened facial muscles, and redraping loose skin. However, the invasiveness of a face lift and the significant amount of downtime following surgery makes it difficult for many to have surgery.
Luckily, dermal fillers are a great alternative! Also known as a liquid face lift, dermal fillers primarily boost facial volume to restore and enhance the face’s youthful contours.
How Dermal Fillers Work
Generally, facial aging has three basic components: changes in skin texture (wrinkles and lines), soft tissue descent (jowls), and volume loss (sunken cheeks and hollow tear troughs). Facial fillers address the third component – volume loss. Some fillers are the ones that actually fill in fat or volume loss while others stimulate the production of naturally occurring substances such as proteins and hyaluronic acid to improve skin elasticity. Also, there are dermal fillers that can do both. Lastly, it is not also uncommon to use one’s own fat to restore volume in the face.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
The benefits of dermal fillers in facial rejuvenation are numerous. First, it’s less costly than surgery. Second, since it’s not as invasive as other surgical cosmetic procedures, downtime is minimal. In fact, most injectables are considered as ‘lunchtime treatments’ because they can be performed within one’s lunch break and the patient will be able to resume to work afterwards.
