For thousands of years, people have been trying to defy the signs of ageing. The quest for eternal youth goes all the way back to ancient times. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese, and Indians had their own methods of fighting the effects of ageing, some of which were very effective, that in fact, most are still being applied even today.
However, unlike ancient practices, we do not have to douse ourselves with donkey milk (just as Cleopatra did) or apply radioactive facial creams just to achieve younger, radiant skin. Technology and countless medical research have led us to non-invasive, risk-free, and instant methods to anti-ageing, enter dermal fillers.
There is not an aesthetic clinic out there that does not offer all sorts of dermal fillers for different aesthetic procedures.
Dermal Fillers For Anti-Ageing
Fillers can be injected into the skin to temporarily smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines caused by ageing. It is a popular treatment for anyone looking for a safe and instant facial rejuvenation. Since it is a non-invasive procedure, anti-ageing dermal fillers are done via an out-patient basis. Meaning, you can walk out of the clinic as soon as the procedure is done. However, as mild bruising and injection-site swelling may occur, it is advisable to practice precautionary measures such as not being under the sun for too long and avoiding strenuous activity for at least a day or two.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
As people age, their skin’s moisture, elasticity and volume or plumpness decrease. The body also slows down its production of collagen and elastin that keeps the skin from sagging and supports its elasticity and volume. With low levels of collagen and elastin, the skin begins to gradually lose its youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid, another vital component of your skin, declines as you age. This makes skin moisture retention difficult – leaving your skin dry and dull. Dermal fillers, which are made from hyaluronic acid, provide the moisture boost that’s needed for the skin to look younger. Additionally, fillers help add volume to those areas that suffer from a loss of collagen and elastin.
Dermal Fillers Are Safe To Use
Hyaluronic acid, which is the most active ingredient in most dermal fillers, occurs naturally in the body. Thus, when injected, the body naturally absorbs it in time – making it safe and less risky. Aesthetic clinics may offer a topical anesthetic to ease the discomfort during the procedure. Treatment time is usually under an hour and results can last for up to 18 months.
Different Applications Of Dermal Fillers
To achieve a youthful appearance, there are different applications of dermal fillers an individual can choose from – an aesthetic clinic usually offers the following services:
- Lip Augmentation
