Dermal fillers can address everything from sagging skin to a weak chin line. Since dermal fillers provide instant results without the intense recovery needed after surgery, they’re an increasingly popular option for restoring more youthful-looking skin.
At 4Ever Young Anti-Aging Solutions, we offer the best injectable fillers on the market to nurture your skin’s youthfulness without invasive treatments. Instead, our expert medical providers skillfully apply dermal fillers to enhance your natural beauty.
Dermal fillers are among the most gratifying cosmetic treatments available, treating several skin concerns that appear over time, including wrinkles, scars, and skin laxity.
Skin Changes over Time
As you age, the changes that occur in your body often make their first appearances through your skin. For example, as your body begins to slow the production of collagen, which provides skin its strength and support, the outer layers of skin lose their plump, youthful look, and your skin begins to thin and form fine lines.
Similarly, your body’s elastin levels decrease, causing your skin to hang loosely and become more fragile. These signs of aging are only amplified by genetics and lifestyle choices, such as sun exposure or smoking. Early signs of aging that may appear on your skin include:
- Rougher skin
- Dryer, duller skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Weak chin or jawline
- Loss of fat below the skin, causing a more sunken appearance
- Puckering of skin around the mouth
While these signs of aging are entirely normal and natural, not everyone embraces them enthusiastically. That’s why skin rejuvenation treatments like dermal fillers are so popular.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a versatile, minimally invasive way to suppress the signs of aging. Made of either synthetic or naturally occurring gels, they improve the skin’s fullness and youthful look when injected into specific locations.
As fillers restore skin’s plumpness, fine lines and wrinkles are “filled,” reducing their appearance. Beyond the immediate results of injections, which restore volume and smooth your skin, recent studies show that fillers may also stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, enhancing your results.
Some of the most common signs of aging that fillers target include:
- Under-eye circles
- Sunken cheeks
- Thin lips
- Lines around the lips
- Facial creases and wrinkles
- Recessed scars
These treatments also can improve the skin’s overall texture. Fillers applied by a skilled medical provider at 4Ever Young Anti-Aging Solutions provide subtle, natural-looking results.
How Do Fillers Work?
The dermal fillers offered at 4Ever Young use hyaluronic acid to revitalize and add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that naturally exists in almost all living organisms.
Hyaluronic acid’s primary function is to attract and bind to water in the skin cells, moisturizing and lubricating the tissues. It also transports nutrients and serves as a shock absorber in the joints. These natural functions of hyaluronic acid provide the plump, smooth, hydrated look present in youthful skin.
When injected into targeted areas, filler plumps the skin from its deeper levels, taking the place of lost fat and protein to smooth skin, provide volume, and fill fine lines and wrinkles.
Which Fillers Are Right for Me?
Deciding which fillers are best for your skin concerns depends on several factors that the medical providers at 4Ever Young Anti-Aging Solutions are happy to address during a consultation.
We feature the highest quality dermal fillers from the industry-leading brands: Juvéderm and Restylane.
Juvéderm’s filler line uses hyaluronic acid to add volume to the facial tissue. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body, it’s well-received as a cosmetic injectable. In addition, Juvéderm’s products may stimulate the production of collagen, which plumps the skin both naturally and through filler treatments.
There are several products in the Juvéderm family, and all of them use hyaluronic acid as their base. Juvéderm products, which include Vollure XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm Ultra XC, and Volbella XC, target different areas with specific formulas.
In addition, each Juvéderm product features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid to target specific concerns when injected. This dermal filler collection fills in smile lines that occur around the mouth and nose, addresses loss in skin elasticity, and enhances lips.
On average, Juvéderm dermal fillers last around one to two years.
The Restylane line of injectable fillers also has hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient. Through Restylane fillers, the skin restores hydration, fullness, and elasticity. Products from Restylane include Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.
Restylane formulates each product differently to serve a specific purpose. For example, Restylane Silk’s gel is smaller and smoother than other Restylane fillers because it’s made to smooth fine lines around the mouth, which requires increased precision.
Our expert medical team uses Restylane to smooth facial wrinkles, enhance lips, smooth away lines around the mouth, add lift and volume to the cheeks, and provide volume to the backs of hands. Depending on the treatment area and the Restylane product used, results may last six to eighteen months.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
