Restore that Facial Oomph! with Dermal Fillers

We age and we sag; it is the harsh truth. Some age better than others, but aging runs its course for everyone. However, we can enhance a bit here and there, giving our sallow faces that boost of "self-esteem" to keep us going another youthful mile. Ladies and gents, let us discuss dermal fillers.

According to Healthline, your skin, face and body, succumb to gravity as your epidermis thins and as you lose underlying collagen. Drastic weight loss speeds up the sagging process due to the sudden loss of subcutaneous fat. Last but not least, our best friend for tans and Vitamin D, but enemy No. 1 for youthful skin, the sun expedites any and all forms of aging. Are there remedies? Yes indeed. At home treatments include facial creams, facial exercises and vitamin supplements. For the brave and those willing to spend a pretty penny, a facelift is the most invasive method but gives the most drastic results. Alas, the financial limitations of the average consumer, or health issue concerns, preclude this option to most. Luckily, there is a middle ground.

Recommended in-office procedures include laser resurfacing, ultrasound skin tightening and dermal fillers. Let's focus on dermal fillers. This procedure should not be confused with Botox. Botox is an injected toxin that essentially paralyzes your muscle to prevent wrinkles caused by facial expression lines. Dermal fillers inject collagen into areas that need a boost. Toxin versus collagen, completely different. There are four main dermal filler subtstrates: Hyaluronic acid, Calcium hydroxylapatite, Poly-L-lactic acid and Polymethylmethacrylate beads. The most commonly used substrate is Hyaluronic acid. Treatments using the aforementioned susbtrates can last from 6-24 months. Polymethylmethacrylate beads yield permanent results, but can only be used around the mouth.

The next question is if it is safe. As with all beauty treatments, there are risks. For dermal fillers, it is paramount to choose reputable establishments using high quality fillers. The FDA warns against using online purchased dermal fillers as they can cause necrosis and embolism. Do not skimp when it comes to this procedure. It is more than a microderm or glycolic peel. Leave Amazon out of this one. Dermskin USA is offers this service and our beauty experts are ready to consult with you and your skin needs. When you are ready, do think of Dermskin USA.
