The ageing process comes for us all. No matter how well we take care of our skin in our 20s and 30s, we simply cannot stop time from gradually degrading our skin quality. Factors such as sun damage and smoking can indeed accelerate the process of ageing with both of these lifestyle aspects encourage the premature breakdown of skin structures, but can they be remodelled or put on hold? Let’s discover how dermal fillers help improve the appearance for tired eyes.
What are dermal fillers made of?
Dermal fillers are an injectable gel like substance that contain hyaluronic acid, for example, a naturally occurring sugar in the skin which the filler itself uses. This acid is essential to your skins bounce and firmness, which is why dermal fillers are so effective in volume. Because this sugar occurs naturally within the body, your skin will accept the dermal filler with ease and is very safe to use for enhancing soft tissues in the face because they are compatible with your skin, delivering effective results safely.
How dermal fillers help with the appearance of ageing skin
Ageing skin becomes thin, loosened, and loses its structure, and dermal fillers aids with all three of these. Because dermal filler is literally a ‘filler’, it helps to add a little more substance and volume to areas of affected tissue, softening facial folds and adding more structural definition to the skin.
If your face has lost its volume over the years within the cheek area, dermal fillers can be used to solely target the cheeks in order to give them volume and add definition to the cheeks.
Fillers can add volume to the tear troughs and reduce lines on the forehead, as well as lines lower on the face, such as marionette lines which run from the corners of your mouth to your chin, or nasolabial lines which run from the nose to the mouth.
One of the most well-known uses of the filler, the lips are injected with dermal filler either in the body of the lip or to boost the volume or the border of the lips to increase definition.
The issue we have when we age is that we tend to lose elasticity and collagen in our skin which causes sagging, and this doesn’t occur just on the face. Earlobes can show signs of severe aging too and can become droopy and wrinkly and dermal fillers offer a fast and efficient fix for this as they target the wrinkles and sagging skin ensuring that your earlobes are much nicer on the eye.
