Have you begun to notice the signs of aging? You may have begun to notice some fine lines and wrinkles. Perhaps you have been noticing these signs for a while, and they are just becoming too pronounced to continue to ignore. There are a lot of treatment options for lines, wrinkles, and facial folds, but one of the most common and minimally invasive treatments are dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a solution that is injected just beneath the surface of the skin. The main purpose of dermal fillers is to plump the skin so that fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out. Some dermal fillers are designed for more severe lines and wrinkles or facial folds.
Different dermal fillers can have different ingredients, but the active ingredient in many dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound that is produced by the body for skin health. Production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin decreases over time, which is what causes skin to begin to wrinkle and lose volume. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler can plump the skin and eliminate wrinkles in a more natural way with only a few side effects.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are several different types of dermal fillers from different manufacturers. One of the most common brands, and one that we work with quite a bit, is Juvederm. Juvederm offers several different dermal fillers, and which one you use depends on your personal aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin. Of the available Juvederm Treatments, Mind Body Spirit Care offers Voluma for volume loss in the cheeks, Ultra and Volbella for the lips and mouth, or Vollure for facial lines around the nose and mouth.
