If you are looking to transform your smile or turn back time, then dermal fillers could be the option for you. As we age, our skin loses fat, facial volume, and the skin stretches a bit. This causes wrinkles to become more apparent. Sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle factors can impact the facial skin as well. Dermal fillers work to restore volume to the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They can also be used to plump thin lips and improve the appearance of scars.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the skin cells of the body. However, its production decreases with age. The dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and are injected directly underneath the skin to plump up these areas. They can last for about six months before being fully absorbed by the body. Why choose a dentist to do it? Unlike estheticians, dermatologists, nurses, and surgeons who can perform fillers, the dentist also has the ability, knowledge, and experience to deliver local anesthesia to make the filler injection a more enjoyable experience. In addition, the dentist has years of training and studying facial and oral anatomy.
If you are interested in dermal fillers, you can request consultation to address your concerns and to see if dermal filler is a right procedure for your facial esthetics. Other options such as Botox or (Polydiaxanone) PDO threading may be used in conjunction or instead of dermal filler.
