The Long-Term Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Are you searching for ways to reduce the signs of aging so you can look and feel younger? Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure that can help you accomplish this goal. According to the National Laser Institute, dermal filler treatments have increased by 8% in the last year. The reason this type of treatment is gaining popularity is because it can help to minimize wrinkles, rejuvenate skin, and restore elasticity. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can make a huge difference in your appearance. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of this option.

Long-Term Collagen Production

The skin starts to show signs of aging when collagen and elastin production starts to drop. Although this is a natural part of the aging process, there are safe ways to slow it down. If you can increase collagen and elastin production in the skin, you can reduce wrinkles and create a younger appearance. Dermal fillers can help with this. Dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid. This substance has been proven to increase collagen and elastin levels when it’s directly injected into the skin. This creates younger-looking, bouncier skin.

Immediate Results

Another great benefit of this cosmetic procedure is that the results are almost immediate. In our experience, most patients start to see results in one to two weeks after having an injection. In addition to fast-acting results, the effects of a treatment are also long-lasting. We’ve found that most mid-facial fillers will last for up to two years, and lip fillers often last nine months.

Natural-Looking Results

Although cosmetic procedures are often working against aging and Mother Nature, you want your results to look as natural as possible. Dermal fillers will plump up the skin in order to raise the cheeks, jawline, or plump lips. This can restore your youthful face. This creates a more natural look than just targeting individual wrinkles.

Can Be Used With Other Treatments

If you want to use dermal fillers along with other types of treatments, that’s usually not a problem. For instance, this treatment is often used along with Botox treatments. Combining these two treatment options is a wonderful way to restore a youthful appearance. Procedures for color and texture improvement can also be added with no negative side effects.

These are just a few of the benefits of dermal fillers. If you’d like to learn more about dermal fillers or other cosmetic procedures, contact Syngergy Face + Body by Travis Shaw, MD today. We look forward to helping you feel more confident in your appearance!
