Aging is now reversible. Famous celebs like Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez have opted for the new anti-wrinkle treatment, which support when other skin care products stop working over time.
Are you inquisitive to know?
It’s dermal filler. Being an outcome of revolutionary aesthetic science, it evokes elasticity in the skin naturally. You do not require any medicine. Neither would you go under the knife if you have nonsurgical anti-wrinkle fillers.
Before explaining about the fillers, let’s understand the aging skin cycle.
What causes aging?
Aging is a biological process. But, the best anti-aging treatments can challenge it. An Extracellular Matrix (ECM) supports our skin layers-Epidermis, Dermis and Subcutis. It provides with a tensile strength, which fibroblasts-driven proteins and fibres stimulate. The most abundant component called collagen is there to ensure the structure and integrity of the skin. The fibroblasts stretch out through that collagen network. The resulting mechanical tension regulates collagen synthesis spontaneously.
With aging, the collagen fibres deteriorate and the fragmented collagen accumulates. Consequently, the mechanical tension decreases; fibroblast activities get impaired. It increases collagen degrading enzymes that retard collagen production. This is how our skin reduces integrity, promoting the cycle of structural loss.
Dermal Fillers-the best nonsurgical treatment for aging face & wrinkles
As aforementioned, the dermal filler can reduce the signs of aging. It is a gel extracted from a naturally occurring complex sugar. As it is administered into the deep dermis, the wrinkles and troughs on the surface fill up. While being under the skin, this gel gradually corrects the loss of volume. These gel-driven microspheres promote fibroblast activities and trigger collagen neogenesis (formation of tissues). Subsequently, the newly produced collagen network produces fibres, which strengthen the tissue connectivity in the dermis over time.
In the meantime, the gel carriers begin to degrade. The simultaneously penetrating macrophages gradually dissolve those microspheres. In short, the gel regenerates the fibroblast driving to collagen network and additionally, stimulates elastin production.
The skin regains support and elasticity with fillers. The changes reflect through an improved skin quality in a low downtime. The improved firmness and plump display it.
Unlike Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) anti-wrinkle treatment, the effect of dermal fillers is long lasting, but temporary. For being biodegradable, it naturally disappears into the body over time. Simply say, its effect generally fades away in between 6 and 12 months. However, the longevity of this lubricant depends on its thickness, the area treated, your skin condition, age, lifestyle and type. But generally, the skin specialists recommend a top-up treatment after 6-12 months of the treatment to get optimal results during that facelift.
Nonsurgical & Painless
If you can endure the pain of pinching, then the facelift with fillers will be painless. It’s like a stinging sensation when the cosmetic surgeon injects it. However, he/she applies a numbing gel or cream beforehand so that the pain could be minimal.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe or Unsafe?
For being driven from a complex organic sugar, it does not cause any harm. Gradually, this lubricant disappears, leaving no side effect behind. If there seems any allergic reaction, it is completely recoverable.
Besides, this treatment is prohibited for these:
- The one below 18 years of age
- Pregnant & breastfeeding women
- Those who have skin problems
- Those who have lower immunity
If you are also thinking about the facelift with revolutionary fillers, always discuss about its effect, safety measures and anti-wrinkle procedure prior. It could help you to prepare for the temporary inflammation and irritation, which may occur in some cases.
