A number of our patients in Schaumburg have been asking about dermal fillers, a type of wrinkle reduction treatment. If you are concerned about the development of lines and wrinkles on your face but wish to avoid surgery, a treatment with a dermal filler may be just what you are looking for. Before jumping in, there are some things that you need to know about the treatment so that you understand what it’s all about.
Do You Require an Increase in Facial Volume?
A dermal filler treatment is often recommended in cases where the patient only needs additional facial volume for the correction of fine lines and wrinkles. Once injected into your skin, the filler goes to work to reverse the process of facial volume loss.
Are You Having Trouble with Decreased Facial Volume and Overly Dry Skin?
If you are dealing with both thinner skin and dry skin, a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler would probably be perfect for you. Hyaluronic acid, found in a growing number of topical skin care products, promotes the retention of moisture within your skin. In fact, hyaluronic acid is able to attract and retain more weight in water than it weighs itself.
Since each individual skin cell can retain more water molecules due to the presence of hyaluronic acid, this type of dermal filler is appropriate for those requiring an increase in skin thickness and hydration. Of course, you should make us aware, prior to your treatment, if you are currently dealing with any medical conditions.
How long your results will last will vary greatly, depending upon the exact product injected into your skin and other factors. At some point, the injected materials will be metabolized by your body and require additional treatments at our office in the Schaumburg area in order to maintain your results.
