As we age skin sags primarily due to the loss of volume and also because of a decrease in collagen and elastin. Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid molecule thatare designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
It is given as a deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults and also for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial folds such as nasolabial folds. Fillers are also injected into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines.
So dermal fillers add volume to smoothen the lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want.
As the filler contains local anaesthesia procedure is very comfortable. The procedure takes 15-20mins.Slight bruising may occur at the site on injection which resolves in 3-4days.
One of the great advantage of this procedure is the effect are long lasting(8 to12months) but not permanent.
