The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
With age, your skin begins to produce less collagen, and without it, it becomes thinner and loses volume and elasticity. But there is help, talk to your dermatologist about all the available treatment options that can improve the health and appearance of your skin. Dermal fillers are one of these treatments, and to learn more about the procedure and its benefits you can contact your local skin experts at Southeast Dermatology in Pasadena and Houston, TX.
There are different types of dermal fillers, each with its own set of benefits and considerations, so consult with your dermatologist to find out which is best for your individual needs.
Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin, usually around the eyes, mouth, and nose. They can smooth fine lines and wrinkles, restore volume, and give your skin a more youthful look.
The in-office nonsurgical treatment usually takes less than an hour to complete but the results can last for months, sometimes years depending on the type of filler. You may be able to see results almost immediately after the treatment, and recovery time is minimal.
Another benefit of dermal fillers is that they're a less invasive and less costly alternative to elective surgical procedures.
