Over the past few years, the social stigma of undergoing cosmetic surgery has largely faded away, even among men, with people ranging from celebrities to everyday people having procedures performed to enhance their appearance. There are, however, still a significant number of people who would like to reverse the appearance of fines lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and lost facial volume, but resist the idea of surgeries they consider risky, expensive or too extreme.
People like this are often unaware than there are other treatments available that are non-surgical in nature. One of these is a specialized treatment using dermal fillers, also known as a liquid facelift.
Dermal fillers are injectables containing various substances that can temporarily enhance the appearance of the skin. They are non-invasive and require no downtime. The results are immediately apparent and natural-looking.
Collagen Dermal Fillers
Collagen is a substance that helps form a framework for healthy skin and blood vessels supplying nutrients to skin cells. Abundant when we are young, collagen gradually decreases in supply and function as we age. This results in skin that begins to sag and lose its luster. The loss of collagen is most noticeable on the face, which is why collagen is one of the most popular types of dermal filler treatments.
As with all dermal filler treatments, collagen dermal filler treatments offer significant, but temporary results. The process must be repeated in order to maintain results.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Another popular choice for dermal fillers in a liquid facelift is hyaluronic acid, a substance that greatly helps in the hydration of skin. It attracts and binds water, which plumps and volumizes our skin. Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is produced in lesser amounts due to the aging process. Supplementing with dermal fillers restores proper levels of this important substance, and with it comes skin that is more hydrated, resilient and moist.
The results of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are immediate and long-lasting. Since they contain only natural ingredients, no allergic response is likely. Like collagen dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid filler results are temporary and require follow-up treatments to maintain results.
