When it comes to popular anti-aging facial injections, most people have heard of Botox. But if you thought anti-wrinkle injections begin and end with Botox, then it’s time to introduce yourself to the volumizing powers of dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
While Botox is designed to relax facial muscles – thus smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines – dermal fillers are designed to add subtle volumization to injection sites. Most dermal fillers (like Juvederm and Restylane) contain hyaluronic acid gel that provides a temporary lifting effect. These dermal fillers have a thicker gel, which acts as a foundation for loose and sagging skin. Some dermal fillers are designed for volumizing lips; these injections tend to have a thinner hyaluronic acid gel so as to maximum natural lip movement.
Hyaluronic acid is also an important compound for encouraging the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. As soon as hyaluronic acid is injected into the treatment site, it triggers collagen and elastin levels to promote long-term results.
Dermal fillers can help create a much more natural and youthful appearance than just Botox alone. These anti-aging injections can be placed around the contours of the face in order to mimic a younger appearance. As a result, clients look much more refreshed and youthful.
Results from dermal fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the brand and treatment area. Side effects can include temporary swelling and bruising at the injection site. Most dermal fillers take only minutes to be injected.
