A growing number of patients are asking about facial filler treatments for the enhancement of skin volume and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. These products have been approved by the FDA as safe and effective treatments for most individuals with wrinkled skin. Facial filler treatments offer the advantages of quick procedure times, few (if any) complications, and no requirement for sedation or a recovery time.
A Note About Hyaluronic Acid and Facial Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a very important skin component that tends to become depleted with age. Since its role of this acid is to attract moisture and enhance skin volume, this age-related loss of production leads to thinner and drier skin.
An injection with a hyaluronic acid-based facial filler can help reverse this process and lead to thicker skin that is more hydrated. In turn, this tends to minimize any lines and wrinkles found on the face, as well as moisturizing your skin from within. As you can imagine, this brings about many benefits.
What are the Benefits of Facial Fillers?
Instead of relying upon invasive surgeries that provide unnatural-looking results, facial fillers are skillfully injected into target areas in order to give the patient subtle yet noticeable results. After a filler treatment at our office, clients can enjoy enhanced facial features; however, they will still look like themselves.
One key benefit to undergoing a facial filler treatment is that absolutely no surgery is involved. This makes the treatments convenient and quick.
Facial Filler Results
Most facial fillers offer long-lasting results, ranging from a months to a year or more, depending on the product and the case. Each product has a somewhat different set of ingredients and duration. So be sure to get all the facts about each filler before you decide whether or not it is right for you.
