Injectable Derma Fillers
From the time an individual reaches the age of mid-twenties his/her aging process begins on a gradual note with reduction of collagen and degeneration of skin cells. While the signs of aging become visible only during mid-thirties or early forties, lines around the eyes, mouth and the forehead make us look older if they become pronounced due to weather exposure. In early days of facial plastic surgery patients had few choices, but now with advancements made in this line there are multitude of surgical and non-surgical methods to remove lines and improve volume and contour of the face.
Different sections of the face require varied skincare treatments depending on the types of creases, folds and wrinkles. While hollows under eyes and lower facial area like smile lines around the mouth are treated with fillers, creases around upper sections of the face like creases around crow’s feet and frown lines are commonly treated with muscle relaxers like Botox® , Xeomin and Dysport to limit movement of muscles. For widespread wrinkle removal on the face laser resurfacing of skin is done and then skin is treated with chemical peels to reduce after-effects of these procedures.
Derma Fillers are delivered by a dermatologist after viewing your skin condition and are a common skin rejuvenation procedure to soften fine lines and restore youthful look. Several derma fillers are now available which are injected into a patient’s skin to add volume and elasticity to underlying muscle and make the skin appear soft and youthful.
