Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are one of the first signs of aging spotted by patients in their 30’s and 40’s. While this may be disappointing for men and women, there are options for slowing these signs of aging and, in some cases, turn back time on their facial appearance. Instead of visiting with a plastic surgeon to discuss facelifts, the team at SkinSmart Dermatology encourages patients to think about cosmetic injectable fillers.
What are injectable fillers?
Drs. Elizabeth Callahan and William Adams describe injectable fillers as aesthetic treatments used by patients with the early signs of aging to fill lines, wrinkles, and folds of the face quickly and easily. These injectables are gel-like substances that contain hyaluronic acid—a molecule known for absorbing water. When this gel is administered directly into the wrinkles of concern, it provides instant volume and smooths the skin. Patients find that they look several years younger when they leave the office versus when they arrived at SkinSmart Dermatology for their appointment!
Injectable fillers are completely safe. They are made to be naturally absorbed by the body, so they are not a permanent option. Instead, they can provide noticeable changes that can last several months. Reinjections are needed to then maintain these results over time. While we can’t completely stop or permanently eliminate the signs of aging, we offer the treatments that allow patients to slow the process and enjoy their youthful appearance for just a little while longer! Many patients choose injectable fillers as their go-to anti-aging treatment because it eliminates the need for invasive plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts.
