Undergoing treatment with facial fillers is one of the best ways that you can help reduce wrinkles and lines appearing on your face. Although these common signs of aging are inevitable, their premature development is not. There is often no need to undergo surgery and deal with the associated risks, expense, and complications. A treatment with a filler allows you to enjoy significant wrinkle reduction and return to your normal activities almost immediately.
What Are Facial Fillers?
A filler is a type of injectable treatment consisting of a gel containing an ingredient that promotes increased skin thickness and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Of course, your skin will continue to age normally both before and after your treatment. At this point, usually quite a few months away, you will require additional injections to maintain your results.
The Best Filler for Light Wrinkles
Collagen may be your best bet when you wish to minimize light lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a skin component that declines in production as you grow older. This reduction in collagen causes your skin to gradually become thinner and more prone to the development of light lines and wrinkles. A collagen injection can help to restore your normal levels and push wrinkles up and out.
Fillers for Wrinkles and Dry Skin
This situation is best treated with a hyaluronic acid facial filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that promotes water retention and has a plumping effect on your skin. However, it can become depleted due to aging or exposure to environmental factors. A hyaluronic acid injection can help to reverse this process, leading to skin that is better hydrated, thicker, and displays less prominent wrinkles.
Other Types of Facial Fillers
Some fillers involve the injection of something called polylactic acid. Polylactic acid is chemically similar to the lactic acid your muscles produce when you exercise. Your body responds to an injection by replacing the injected material with fresh collagen fibers.
