If you're unhappy with your skin's appearance and wish that you could look younger, healthier, and more refreshed, a cosmetic dermatologist can help. Cosmetic dermatologists can recommend minimally invasive skin care treatments, like dermal fillers, to make your skin tighter, plumper, and smoother. Here is a simple guide to determining if dermal fillers are right for you.
You Have Skin Problems, But Aren't Ready for Cosmetic Surgery
When skin problems affect your self-esteem, you can either try over-the-counter products, cosmetic dermatology treatments, or cosmetic surgery to correct the problem. Some people don't feel ready to commit to an invasive cosmetic surgery procedure. Dermal fillers are a happy medium between at-home treatments and cosmetic surgery. The procedure is non-invasive, short, and relatively risk-free. It also requires no downtime, has few side effects, and produces long-lasting results. Dermal fillers can eliminate or reduce the appearance of skin problems like fine lines, deep wrinkles, sagging skin, skin hollows, and minor scars.
You Want to Restore Your Youthful Appearance
As you age, your body begins to produce less collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keeping your skin plump, tight, and youthful. Dermal fillers can stimulate your body's natural collagen production, or act as an artificial replacement for collagen and elastin. Dermal fillers will fill in facial hollows, fine lines, and deep wrinkles and restore facial volume so that your skin looks dramatically refreshed and youthful.
You're Committed to Your Health
The best candidates for dermal fillers are those who are committed to living a healthy lifestyle. You must be in good physical health and not smoke or abuse drugs or alcohol. You must also be committed to following your dermatologist's pre and post-procedure instructions carefully and completely.
