When you reach a certain age, your skin will begin to change for the worse. For some, it comes earlier than others, but skin problems such as lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin will make their appearance known eventually. More people than ever are seeking methods to slow or minimize the appearance of aging skin. Fortunately, there are more procedures available than ever before to help you turn back the clock on aging skin.
Dermal fillers are growing in popularity because they offer a non-surgical method that is still safe and effective for treating aging skin. They can temporarily smooth lines and wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. Dermal fillers come in two main forms, based on their active ingredients. There are collagen fillers and hyaluronic acid fillers. Both ingredients work in different ways to minimize the appearance of aging, sagging skin.
Collagen Dermal Fillers
Collagen is a popular ingredient in dermal fillers because it offers a lattice or framework that allows your body to deposit skin cells around it. Collagen encourages a network of blood vessels to form around these skin cells, supplying them with nutrients and removing toxins.
The procedure involves a series of injections containing collagen suspended in a gel or solution. The injections help the product reach deep into the skin and get to work immediately. The added collagen helps increase facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a popular choice for restoring lost facial volume and smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps adequately hydrate dry skin, a common complaint of older people. The way hyaluronic acid works is that it soaks up water molecules like a sponge, which plumps or adds volume to each individual skin cell. It is like applying an internal moisturizer. As we age, we lose much of the hyaluronic acid produced by our bodies leading to dryer skin that displays signs of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers help reverse this process.
