As people age, their skin loses the collagen and plumpness of youth and gradually slackens. This slackening process is a dead give-away for aging, and is one of the hardest things to disguise. Unlike dark circles or other skin flaws, loose and slack skin is extremely difficult to combat. Until recently, the only way to reinvigorate loose skin was with a facelift. Thankfully, today it is possible to use a dermal filler such as Sculptra to rejuvenate your skin without surgery.

How Do Injectable Fillers Work?

Injectable fillers use a special acid and collagen stimulator to fill in, rejuvenate, and help plump up sagging and lined areas of the face. The injections are able to provide specific and targeted treatment so that if you only need crow's feet or marionette lines filled in, you can get only what you need without involving other areas of your face.

Dermal fillers usually require a series of three injections to complete the replacement collagen treatment. These injections will gradually create that smooth and youthful look in your skin once again, literally taking years off of your appearance.

While the results are not permanent, they are long lasting and some results can last up to two years.

What Are The Advantages Of Dermal Fillers?

The best part about using any dermal filler is that it does not require surgery. It only requires a series of small injections that can be done in very little time. There is usually little pain and very little down time with fillers, unlike plastic surgery which often requires several weeks of recovery.

In addition, this is a subtle and very gradual process so you can keep your use of dermal filler your own little secret if you want!

Who Can Use Dermal Fillers?

The best candidates are those with smaller lines, and those who are just beginning to show the signs of aging. Although Sculptra and other dermal fillers can help most people look younger, it usually cannot remove or erase very deep lines.

The best candidates are also those with a great immune system and few or no allergies that could cause an allergic reaction to the ingredients in most common dermal fillers.

Fillers offer incredible opportunities for men and women who wish to quietly remove the signs of aging without surgery. Find a licensed dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon, such as Dermatherapy, that can offer you a consultation, as well as before-and-after photos for the best results.
