The need for derm fillers
If you are looking for a way to restore your youthful looks without going through surgical procedures, dermal fillers may be the solution for you. If we look at our youthful photos from childhood, it is easy to recognize that cherub-like qualities of our childhood face. Even as we grew to adulthood in our twenties and thirties, a natural volume of facial fat that left our face smooth and healthy looking, characterized most people’s face. Many of us have adopted healthy habits that actually make us healthier today than we were in our twenties and thirties. However, the natural process of aging can leave us with sagging skin, wrinkles, and sunken hollows in the face.
As we get older, it is completely normal to lose volume in many areas of the face. The areas that are most likely to lose volume include the cheeks, the brow, the lips, and around the eyes. As our cheeks lose volume, they either sag or descend from their usual high position in the face. This leads to the formation of the folds from the corners of the nose to the mouth, and even jowls. We also can lose volume over the eyebrows, which in extreme cases will give the face of more skeletal appearance.
The role of collagen and hyaluronic acid
Healthy and youthful looking skin contains normal levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid. We begin to lose our youthful levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid sometime around age 20. By the time we are 30, some individuals have experienced significant loss of collagen, wrinkles, fine lines, and the beginning of a hollowed appearance. Some people turn to cosmetic surgery as a way to produce long lasting changes in facial appearance. Dermal fillers are an ideal solution for those who are just beginning to show signs of facial aging, or who are not ready to consider surgical intervention. The top dermatologists in Charlotte offer a comprehensive assortment of injectable treatments that can meet their patients’ specific needs. The beauty of injectable fillers is that they can be administered during an office visit without the need for anesthetics.
