If you are bothered by lines and wrinkles on your face, you have probably begun looking into your treatment options. If your lines and wrinkles are light to moderate in appearance, you should consider undergoing a treatment with facial fillers. Millions of people have used fillers to treat signs of facial aging without surgery.
What are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers like Juvederm® help to fill in lines and wrinkles by increasing skin volume to push wrinkles up and out. Fillers are safe, inexpensive, convenient treatment options for those who do not need conventional cosmetic surgery or wish to postpone it.
What are Some Benefits of Facial Fillers?
One thing that patients notice right away is that they receive immediate results. Right after your injections, you should notice an increased fullness in your skin and a reduced prominence of lines and wrinkles. Another benefit to treatment with fillers is their ability to offer results that appear very natural. This treatment rectifies imbalances of substances such as collagen and hyaluronic acid to work with your body. You should not notice any drastic changes; you will simply appear as a younger version of yourself.
What Ingredients are Found in Facial Fillers?
One of the most popular ingredients found in fillers today is hyaluronic acid. You may be familiar with this substance as a common ingredient in quite a few topical skin care products. In addition to making an effective topical, hyaluronic acid makes a wonderful active ingredient in a filler because of its ability to increase both skin volume and moisture.
Hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to attract many times its own weight in water molecules. After it has absorbed all of this moisture, your skin will appear hydrated and full. Skin lacking in hyaluronic acid will eventually become thinner and drier, which sets the stage for the development of lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers can help reverse this process, leading to skin with fewer wrinkles.
Collagen is also found in a number of facial fillers. And it is also used as a common ingredient in skin care products. This protein is found in great amounts in the human body, particularly in the skin where it helps to increase bulk and structure. Due to age, collagen tends to break down more quickly, which makes you more susceptible to the development of wrinkles. Collagen fillers help to rectify this deficiency and reverse this wrinkle-inducing process.
