Are you unhappy with your appearance because of the development of lines, wrinkles, or aging skin? Since your face is usually the first thing people notice about you, any decline in its appearance can dramatically affect the way people view you. Dermal fillers are a type of treatment available in the Ottawa, IL area that can enhance your overall appearance by improving the condition of your facial skin.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic treatment involving the injection of different substances to promote increased facial skin volume and diminish signs of aging like lines and wrinkles. They offer a safe and effective alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery without the need for significant downtime or side effects.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Familiar to most Ottawa residents as a common ingredient in topical skin care products, hyaluronic acid is normally produced in great amounts by your body. However, as you grow older, your body produces less and less of it and your skin begins to show signs of aging as a result.
This age-related deficiency of this acid can be corrected by injecting a gel containing hyaluronic acid into your skin. Your skin will start to fill out, and lines and wrinkles will be pushed out from below.
A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler treatment may be appropriate if you are lacking both skin thickness and hydration since the substance has the ability to attract many times its own weight in water molecules.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
The amount of time that your results will last depends upon the specific formulation that you are injected with, as well as other factors. Generally, most dermal fillers last from several months to a year or more. At some point, you will require additional injections at our office in Peru, conveniently located near Ottawa, in order to maintain your results.
