If you live in Green Bay, you are no doubt familiar with the cold, whipping winds that occur during wintertime. Environmental factors like these and others can leave your skin prematurely aged. As your body’s outer barrier, your skin is at the mercy of elements like UV radiation, harsh chemicals, and numerous pollutants. In addition to these harmful factors, the aging process itself can take a toll on your skin. Fortunately, there is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation technique available at our office that can offer you significant results without the need for surgery. We’re talking about dermal fillers, and they may be the perfect treatment for you!
A Closer Look at Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers involve a variety of substances dissolved in a flowable gel that is injected into your face to promote increased skin thickness and minimize lines and wrinkles. These treatments have been approved by the FDA for the safe and effective correction of lines, wrinkles, and an overall loss of facial volume.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are able to both increase facial volume and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. They contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that is found in great abundance in your eyes, joints, and skin when you are young. In your skin, hyaluronic acid possesses the special ability to attract and bind many times its own weight in water molecules. This has a volumizing, plumping effect on your skin.
Unfortunately, as you grow older, your skin begins to lose this hydrating substance. A hyaluronic acid deficiency results in skin that is thinner, drier, and prone to develop lines and wrinkles. A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler works by replacing the hyaluronic acid that has been lost in your skin due to the aging process or environmental factors. When your skin has adequate hyaluronic acid, it tends to be fuller, moisturized, and displays fewer lines and wrinkles.
What About the Results?
Once injected into your skin, dermal fillers offer immediate results that continue to build over the following weeks. After multiple months to a year, you will require additional treatments at our office in Green Bay to replace the materials that have been absorbed by your body.
