Many men and women in Nashville have experienced unwelcome changes in their facial profile that are often caused by skin that has become excessively dry and thin. Many of them mistakenly believe that the only way to address this common problem is by undergoing a facelift procedure. In reality, most cases of facial volume loss can be addressed by an increasingly popular treatment that is minimally-invasive and requires little to no downtime. We’re talking about dermal fillers.
What Causes a Loss of Facial Volume?
A loss of facial volume is normally caused by extreme weight loss or the aging process. This change to the skin and soft tissues beneath can make you appear older than your actual age. It can also lead to the development of hollowed areas around the cheeks or under the eyes. As we grow older, our bodies begin producing less of certain substances that promote skin health and elasticity. Skin that loses volume and moisture inevitably becomes wrinkled unless steps are taken to address it.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a minimally-invasive method of restoring facial volume and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Since no surgery is involved, little to no downtime should be expected. Also, since we are often replacing depleted natural substances, your results will appear soft and subtle. You will simply look like a younger version of yourself. People will notice, but they will not know that you had a treatment done.
What Types of Dermal Fillers are There?
A common ingredient in many dermal fillers is a substance called hyaluronic acid. This acid is produced in large amounts when you are young, but becomes depleted as you grow older. This substance acts like a sponge, holding water within each individual skin cell. As it becomes depleted, your skin becomes both dryer and thinner.
A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler will restore your normal levels and reverse this process. Your skin will be moister and fuller. Fine lines and wrinkles will be minimized as your skin becomes volumized after your treatment at our office in Nashville.
