Patients with concerns regarding the slowly developing signs of aging on the face may be worried that they need to invest in an expensive plastic surgery procedure such as a brow lift or a facelift. Fortunately, many plastic surgeons offer nonsurgical approaches to many concerns, including the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Jeffery Hartog and his team at The Bougainvillea Clinique are here to assist men and women in learning more about nonsurgical treatments for aging skin, including the use of dermal filler injectables.
What is a dermal filler?
Dr. Walt Sweeney of The Bougainvillea Clinique is a professional ready to assist patients with finding ways to achieve a more youthful look. If you are considering ways ot address fine lines and wrinkles in the face and are ready to discuss nonsurgical choices, dermal fillers might be right for you. These injectables are of a gel-like consistency and often include an ingredient known as HA, or hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid maintains volume where it is injected, and can be absorbed into the skin over time. With this in mind, it is vital that patients understand that dermal fillers are not a permanent solution, but instead a temporary fix for unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. Most of the dermal fillers available will last anywhere from three to nine months, depending on where they are used and the severity of the lines they correct.
Who is a candidate for dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are best for patients who have mild to moderate formation of fine lines and wrinkles caused by increased skin laxity. Patients who have more severe cases may still be better suited for plastic surgery procedures.
