Many of our patients in Annapolis have been asking us what they can do about skin problems like thinning lips, wrinkles, and a loss of facial volume. Some patients seem to believe that the only way of correcting problems like these is by undergoing some type of surgical procedure. Actually, there are quite a few methods of enhancing the skin without the need for surgery. Newer treatments such as dermal fillers offer significant results by enhancing facial volume without the need for a surgical procedure. This means that you can correct your problem without significant downtime or side effects.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances suspended within a gel that can safely and effectively enhance facial volume, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. They offer results that appear soft and natural. You will simply look like a younger version of yourself. Although dermal fillers offer excellent results, you will need follow-up treatments in Annapolis periodically in order to maintain your results. However, your results should last for six months to up to a year, depending on the product used and other factors.
What Kinds of Dermal Fillers are There?
Hyaluronic acid is the most common ingredient in dermal fillers today. This important substance is able to add volume and moisture to your skin in a very natural way. This is because hyaluronic acid acts as a sponge within your skin cells. It is able to hold many times its own weight in water molecules, which adds a plumping and volumizing effect to your skin in addition to hydrating your skin from within.
Unfortunately, your levels of hyaluronic acid become depleted as you grow older. This means that your skin will become gradually thinner, dryer, and lose volume. This process results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and a noticeably older appearance. By injecting a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, we are reversing this process and smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery.
