As you get older, it's normal to develop fine lines and wrinkles. As part of the natural aging process, skin loses its natural elasticity, resulting in deep nasolabial folds, lines around the eyes, furrows in the forehead and even vertical lips lines. While avoiding sun exposure and other free radicals can help you maintain a more youthful appearance, everyone ages. So, at some point in time, you will eventually start to see the first signs of aging.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid, a compound which is found naturally in our bodies. As we get older, production slows down, resulting in tiny fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Dermal fillers restore lost volume in many areas of the face. They can be used to soften nasolabial folds, marionette lines that run from the corner of the mouth to chin, fill the tear troughs under the eyes and even to boost volume in the mid-face region.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are many types of dermal fillers in Toronto that can restore a more youthful appearance. Juvederm works well to fill nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Results typically last up to one year, sometimes upwards to 18 months. Radiesse is another type of dermal filler that smoothes out wrinkles and also boosts collagen production. This collagen-boosting effects extends the longevity of Radiesse with results lasting longer even longer. Radiesse can be used to fill in lines that create chin wrinkles, lines running from nose to mouth and areas along the jawline to create definition.
Things to Consider
It's important to note that while dermal fillers provide long-lasting results, they do require ongoing maintenance. Most patients schedule routine follow-up appointments to maximize their results. Also, not everyone is a suitable candidate for dermal fillers. It is important to first schedule a consultation to go over any underlying medical issues or certain types of allergies.
