There are many benefits to having dermal fillers. The most common is of course to counteract volume loss.
Areas such as cheeks, nasal folds, and lips can all get a boost of volume bringing back a youthful appearance.
Another benefit is that dermal fillers can help to boost collagen production and growth.
As we age our skin loses elasticity and collagen. When dermal fillers are injected into a desired area, a patient naturally observes the initial age defying results, such as more fullness, contour etc. They also notice that when they return to be re-injected they have stronger collagen than before.
Dermal filler injections help to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. When an injection is made in the skin, the body will naturally produce collagen to heal the area. When fibroblasts (cells that synthesize collagen) are stretched they will secrete more collagen to aid in the healing process.
In addition temporary dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance within the body that is metabolized over time. Hyaluronic Acid is a key component to youthful looking skin.
