If you are looking for a treatment that can smooth and even out wrinkles across many different parts of the face with little to no downtime, then you should perhaps consider getting dermal fillers in London, as it may be the right treatment for you. It is only natural that as people age, their skin can not necessarily maintain the same level of firmness or elasticity it once had. However, by undergoing dermal filler treatment, perhaps combined with other, similar treatments, your skin can be better prepared to fight the signs of ageing in a subtle, natural way.
Different uses of dermal fillers
There are many different areas of the body that can be treated with dermal fillers, though most of them are centred on or around the face. Some of the most common areas for dermal fillers include: the eyes, the mouth, the chin, the neck, the lips and even the hands. With the eyes specifically however, dermal fillers are used in the under eye area. This is because it helps to reduce the dark circles in this area, as well as reducing hollowing – when blood vessels become more visible over time, also known as sunken eyes.
Used in any of these places, dermal fillers will aim to smooth out the fine lines in these areas, as well as aiming to rejuvenate your appearance. These results can sometimes be amplified by also undergoing other treatment at the same time as the dermal fillers. A good example of this would be using Ultherapy – the treatment of using micro focused ultrasound to promote your body’s natural development of collagen – as well as dermal fillers, because the Ultherapy will also help to underpin the face.
This is a treatment that is available for adults of all ages, whether you feel that unwanted lines and wrinkles are just starting to appear on your face, or that they have perhaps been there for too long, and now you wish to be rid of them.
The science behind the dermal fillers
The human body produces both collagen and elastin, and these are the substances within us that keep our skin looking fresh and voluminous. However, at around the age of 25 (the exact age is still debated by experts), the body will slowly begin to lose its collagen and elastin, with most people probably no longer producing any of either of them by their late 20s.
Fortunately, the fresh elasticity of the skin can be helped to be restored by hyaluronic fluid, which is what is contained within dermal fillers. The hyaluronic fluid in dermal fillers are in fact gels which closely imitate the hyaluronic fluid that the human body produces naturally. It helps to make the skin softer, and also is important in ensuring that the skin is well moisturised. Thus, by administering more hyaluronic fluid into the body via dermal fillers, the skin softens and gains more moisture, both of which aid in getting rid of, and reducing, fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, hyaluronic fluid helps to organise the aforementioned collagen and elastin, so that the skin can have an overall brighter and fresher appearance.
