Part of the normal aging process includes the loss of skin volume. The loss of skin volume shows when the previously smooth, firm, youthful skin you once saw in the mirror is replaced with lines and creases in the areas where you show expression. Often those areas include your eyebrows and around the corners of your mouth.
What causes this?
Normal aging causes a loss of elasticity or recoil in the skin. This normal aging combined with the thinning of the skin due to sun damage or aging can create an older look. In fact, many of the visible signs of aging that people experience today are due to volume loss in the skin and other areas of the face.
Wrinkles actually form when three of the chemical components of the skin, collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin begin to lose their elastic structure. When the meshwork loses its structure and strength, then you lose your baby-skin smoothness.
What to do about a loss of skin volume?
While over-the-counter products can help, they are limited as to how impactful and effective they can be. A better option than over-the-counter products can be injectable fillers and dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are even sometimes called wrinkle fillers. They are known to add plumpness to the tissue under your skin and help by filling out the thinned-out meshwork mentioned above. This in turn helps with restoring volume and smoothing out the lines in your skin by shrinking wrinkles.
Dermal fillers can also smooth out marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. They can also smooth out any creases in your chin and enhance and improve the symmetry of your facial features. It will plump up and add volume to sunken cheeks and decrease lip lines that run vertically, as well as enhance the fullness of your lips.
How does the procedure work?
All dermal fillers are basically gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. More than a million men and women choose dermal fillers as their facial rejuvenation treatment each year. It is a safe and effective way to look younger without needing invasive surgery or taking any time off.
The treatment is minimally invasive, requires little to no downtime afterward, and takes only a few minutes to complete. The treatment will be completed in our office. The results last between 12-14 months depending on the dermal filler used and will give you an even more youthful look and a more hydrated appearance.
Which filler is best?
Dr. Gerstle can help restore the volume in your facial areas with dermal fillers such as Revanesse® and Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm® is another type of filler that Dr. Gerstle may recommend. It also helps fill in facial contours that appear due to aging and is also a filler with a base of hyaluronic acid. Also targeting areas around the face, it is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures done here in the US. Its use was approved by the FDA in 2010, so it also has a history of safe and effective use.
Dr. Gerstle will gladly explain the differences between the fillers in as much detail as you need to be comfortable and will suggest which one might be better for your needs during your consultation. Other factors such as if you prefer a subtle or dramatic change in your look will also play a role in his recommendation.
