Do you want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face? If you answered yes, the so-called liquid facelift could help you. Dermal fillers are a minimally-invasive skin treatment that can help you turn back the clock on aging skin. But when they are combined with BOTOX® or Dysport®, the results can be truly incredible.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are treatments appropriate for those with mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, or dry skin. They consist of injectable gels containing various substances to increase facial skin thickness and create a more youthful appearance. Fillers offer instant results that can last for several months to a year or more, depending on the precise formulation used and other factors. At some point, the materials will have been metabolized by the body and require follow-up treatments.
A Note About Hyaluronic Acid and Aging
Hyaluronic acid is the most popular form of dermal filler since it has the ability to attract and retain moisture, holding it within your skin cells. Younger people have adequate supplies of hyaluronic acid, but this important substance can easily become depleted as people age.
Think of hyaluronic acid as a sponge that sits within every skin cell in your body. The substance soaks up moisture and helps increase the size of skin cells. This creates a plumping effect that keeps lines and wrinkles at bay. As hyaluronic acid gradually becomes depleted, the resulting drying effect leads to skin that loses volume and develops lines and wrinkles.
The good news is hyaluronic acid can be injected into the skin when mixed into a gel containing it. This helps reverse the depletion and leads to the process of increased hydration and greater skin thickness to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What About BOTOX®/Dysport®?
BOTOX® and Dysport® work differently than dermal fillers. In short, they are designed to treat a different type of wrinkle known as dynamic wrinkles. This is why BOTOX® and Dysport® and great complements to dermal filler treatments. And this is where the liquid facelift was born.
