Beautiful facial skin is a serious confidence booster. Some of us are quite lucky in this regard, while others may not be. Fuller cheeks, even skin tone, ideally shaped lips, etc. are some of the prominent facial features that all of us desire. If you do not have them naturally, you could always get the help of a professional dentist to make subtle aesthetic changes that make you look more beautiful.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a great way to reduce the wrinkles on the face. They are biocompatible substances injected into the skin, and as the name suggests, they fill the area under the wrinkles to give you even-toned skin. Dermal fillers are usually made from a chemical agent called hyaluronic acid. It is naturally produced by the body and is found in our skin. It makes the skin look hydrated and plump.
How long does the effect last?
Dermal fillers have gained a lot of popularity during the past few years, thanks to the lasting effect that they produce. A single injection can produce an effect that lasts for several months together, and the procedure involved is quite simple. After a time span of three to six months, the drug may start to wear off gradually, and you would require a follow-up consultation. In the long run, your body may begin producing collagen on its own, which makes your skin look younger and fresh.
Are dermal fillers harmful?
Since hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our bodies, injecting it in the form of a dermal filler will not cause any allergic reaction. Over a few months, the filler will be gradually broken down by the cells of the body. The number of patients under the age of 30 getting dermal fillers is drastically increasing. This goes to prove that premature aging is quite a significant concern among the younger generation. However, with dermal fillers, the skin can be restored to its ideal state, thereby reversing the process of aging. Keep in mind; the filler doesn’t induce any permanent changes to the skin. It briefly gets rid of the wrinkles and fine lines.
