The loss of collagen and changes to the skin caused by photodamage can start in your 20s and become increasingly noticeable in your 30s and 40s. Around the same time, your skin might also start to lose some of its radiance.
Although such skin issues are a natural part of aging, they often ignite and fan the flames of insecurity among people who want nothing more than to hold on to their youthful appearance for as long as possible.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of cosmetic treatments that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring the skin’s natural glow. And for the vast majority of people, this combination leads to less insecurity and more self-confidence.
One of the cosmetic treatment options many men and women are turning to with the hopes of achieving a more youthful appearance is dermal fillers.
For those who may have never heard of them, dermal fillers are non-invasive cosmetic injections that can, in many ways, restore deep facial volume. And they are helping a lot of people rediscover what it means to be comfortable in their own skin.
Along with reducing the appearance of fine lines that gradually give way to wrinkles and sagging skin, dermal fillers offer the following when it comes to improved skin appearance:
- Plumps up thin lips
- Minimizes the appearance of scars
- Raises cheeks and jawline
- Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet that can develop at the corner of the eyes as we age
- Helps reconstruct contour deformities in the face
Something to note when it comes to dermal fillers is that there are several available.
With that in mind, choosing the right one comes down to the type of improvements an individual is trying to make to their skin. For example, someone looking to restore deep facial creases, plump up their lips, and restore cheek volume might choose a hyaluronic acid filler like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®.
Meanwhile, someone who wants more youthful, radiant skin might want to go with RADIESSE®, a dermal filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite that helps stimulate collagen production in the skin.
As a byproduct of ramping up collagen production, RADIESSE® can minimize smile lines and the marionette lines that tend to extend from the outer corners of the mouth to the chin when we get older. It can also help raise the cheeks and jawline to facilitate a more youthful appearance.
We may not have much say in getting older, but we do have a whole lot of say when it comes to how we age. And this is, in part, because we have access to non-surgical dermal fillers and other treatments that can work wonders when it comes to minimizing the signs of aging.
