As the skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles begin to form and the skin loses its youthful tone, many may grow upset that their skin makes them appear older than they’d like. Through Dermal Fillers, though, patients may add volume to their skin and reduce the appearance of embarrassing wrinkles on various parts of the face. Common treated areas are the nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth), areas around the mouth, and even the lips. A thorough evaluation with Dr. Campos will allow patients to discuss their facial wrinkles and share their goals so proper fillers may be administered.

 

    Dermal Fillers are injectable treatments that are injected into the targeted area to add volume. Formulations differ, with some containing hyaluronic acid, others containing collagen, and still others containing other substances designed to add volume and reduce wrinkles. Most do not require that the skin be tested prior to treatment, although it is worth discussing with Dr. Campos, especially if you suffer from allergies or have had a bad reaction to another injectable treatment in the past. Learn as much as you can about the injectable that is recommended to become a more educated patient and to help you better understand the product that is being used.

 

    The goal of all Dermal Fillers is to restore substances that may be lost due to aging or even injury to the skin. They may add collagen to raise scar depressions or even help reverse any loss of soft tissue in the area. Hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen are important substances that give the skin its structure and youthful appearance. When these substances are lost due to aging, wrinkles appear, the skin doesn’t ‘bounce back’ as effectively, and skin laxity may be present. Dr. Campos offers Dermal Fillers to his patients to allow them to reverse the aging process and restore their skin to a more youthful-looking state.

 

    Some Dermal Fillers are more suited for certain parts of the face than others, and this will go into deciding which works best for your goals. Some fillers, for instance, should not be used in the lips, eliminating them from contention for patients seeking fuller lips through dermal fillers. In some cases, more than one type of filler may be used depending on the patient’s goals. You might hear this referred to as a liquid facelift.

 

    Also under consideration should be how long the results of each Dermal Filler last. Some fillers last for years, while others provide results that last a few months. During your consultation, inquire about how long you can expect results to last and what type of maintenance program is required so you may maintain the results of the treatment as best as possible. Consult with Dr. Campos to further discuss dermal fillers and whether they are a good option to help you achieve the skincare goals you have set for yourself. In some cases, such as when dynamic wrinkles are the problem instead of static wrinkles, patients may be encouraged to undergo Botox instead.
