If you'd like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump
lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles,
dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid
facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical
facelift without the downtime.
Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue
fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost
compared to surgery. But these treatment aren't permanent; they must
be repeated and maintained.
Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation
treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. Your plastic surgeon
will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments
to achieve your desired results.
Dermal fillers are wonderful to rejuvenate your appearance, but they can't
stop the aging process. If you want a permanent solution, talk to your
doctor about a facelift, brow lift or eye lift.
Some people opt to have a liquid facelift, delaying the time when a surgical
facelift is more appropriate. It's a great way to see some impressive
changes and improvements in your appearance, such as the reduction of
forehead wrinkles, until you're ready for a permanent surgical option.
Just remember, you'll need to have repeat treatments with dermal fillers
as a wrinkle treatment to maintain that fresh, full new look.
