When many people think about using cosmetic treatments to take years off their appearance, they think of extremely invasive procedures. They think about using a neck lift or a facelift in order to get rid of sagging skin and to smooth out wrinkles. And while these treatments are effective and definitely have their place, there are a wide variety of other treatments that are either completely noninvasive or minimally invasive that can help you take years off your appearance. One of these is dermal fillers in Worcester.
Dermal fillers are designed to be injected very gently under the skin. They are especially effective at helping individuals who are starting to see sagging and wrinkled skin. For example, think about the way some individuals start to experience marionette lines around their mouth. Their cheeks start sagging, and so they get a deep groove that goes almost from the corner of their nose down to their chin. When a filler is injected into this line, the line is smoothed out. Now the person looks a lot younger.
That is just one example of how dermal fillers can be used to fill in lines. They can also be used in many other places in the face in order to add more facial volume and to smooth lines and wrinkles. They can even be used for individuals who have some form of indentations on their skin, perhaps from acne.
So the first benefit that a person receives from using fillers is the fact that more volume is immediately added to the skin. The lines and wrinkles disappear as soon as the injections are given. However, there is a second benefit. It is good to know that there are a wide variety of fillers that are available. They are based on a variety of beneficial substances that each have their own purpose and their own pros and cons. The majority of dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. In many cases, the ingredients go on to provide long-lasting results that will benefit your skin. For example, when a filler based on hyaluronic acid is injected under your skin, it is going to help your skin stay hydrated.
In order to receive the benefits that come from using dermal fillers, you first need to schedule a consultation. We will be happy to examine your skin and look at areas that you would like to improve. After it is determined that a particular filler is right for you, the injections can begin. In most cases, the injection session is around 30 minutes. As you can see, very little effort is required in order to gain amazing benefits. You do not need to undergo an invasive procedure like a facelift in order to take years off your appearance. Fillers may just do the trick.
Some fillers are designed to last for around six months while others can last for up to a year or more.
