Facial fillers are a treatment that is on the rise right now among those seeking treatment options that do not involve surgery or downtime. Just one quick treatment is all that you need to temporarily reduce or remove fine lines and wrinkles that can make you appear prematurely aged.
What are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers are a type of treatment consisting of a product mixed within a gel that is injected into the face to correct lines and wrinkles. They work by enhancing facial volume, either by promoting moisture retention or delivering substances that are depleted by the aging process.
Hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient found in facial fillers. Your body produces it in abundance when you are young. Unfortunately, the aging process takes a toll on your hyaluronic acid levels. As your levels decline, your skin begins to become drier, thinner, and more susceptible to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Fillers containing hyaluronic acid can help to rectify this deficiency and reverse the process of wrinkle formation.
When Will I Notice Results?
Most fillers offer immediate results, with additional results building over the next few days. It is important to realize that, while facial fillers offer excellent results, they are temporary. Your face will continue to age normally both before and after your treatment. The injected product will be gradually absorbed by your body, and you will need additional injections at that time. Most patients do not require touch-ups for up to a year or more.
