3 Reasons Dermal Fillers Are One of the Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures

When you look in the mirror, do you see smile lines, sunken cheeks, or thinning lips? Those lines and wrinkles that begin appearing around your eyes, nose, and mouth, can make you wonder what happened to your youthful appearance,  make you feel older than you are, and hurt your self-confidence.

Aging brings thinner, more delicate skin. Even though it’s a natural occurrence, that doesn’t mean you can’t fight the signs of aging that thinner skin brings. Collagen is the protein in your skin that gives it volume and elasticity, and as you age, collagen production decreases. Lines and wrinkles form as your skin thins and volume disappears.

Dermal fillers rejuvenate your skin by replacing the lost volume and smoothing wrinkles. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures, dermal fillers tackle frustrating signs of aging with a quick procedure and often immediate results.

Samuel Pruden II, MD, FACS, FAAD regularly sees men and women of all ages who want to look their best. Dr. Pruden and the team at SkinMD offer popular dermal fillers to prevent and address lines and wrinkles. Read on for the best reasons to consider dermal fillers for yourself.

1. Dermal fillers plump lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are just that: fillers. They use specially formulated solutions to replace the volume that your skin has lost. With added volume, lines and wrinkles are filled in, and your skin looks smoother and more youthful.

The fillers that Dr. Pruden offers at SkinMD are Juvéderm and Restylane. Both fillers use hyaluronic acid, a solution that boosts hydration and fills out volume below the surface of your skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers have a gel-like consistency that lasts between 6-12 months.

2. Dermal filler procedures are quick.

At SkinMD, dermal filler treatment takes just a few minutes. You’ll talk with Dr. Pruden and his aesthetic team to develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique skin concerns. He’ll review your health and medical history to help you decide what type of cosmetic procedure might be best for you.

When you come in for your procedure, we prepare your skin. Preparation and injecting the fillers into your skin typically takes just 15-30 minutes, depending on the type of treatment that you select. With dermal fillers, you’ll likely have little to no downtime, and you can return to your normal daily activities as soon as you leave our office. Regular dermal filler procedures can keep your skin looking hydrated and youthful, and the procedure is often simple enough that you can go during your lunch break.

3. Dermal filler results are instant.

When you have a dermal filler cosmetic procedure done, you’ll leave our office with noticeably smoother features. The hyaluronic acid found in both Juvéderm and Restylane is a substance that naturally occurs in the skin that keeps it plump and hydrated.

When Dr. Pruden injects the filler in your treatment areas, the hyaluronic acid immediately fills in the area. Both fillers replace skin volume that’s lost with age to smooth out wrinkles in your face and lips. With almost no downtime and results that can last between six months to two years, dermal fillers remain one of the most simple and effective methods for fighting the signs of aging.

Dr. Pruden and his team offer a suite of popular dermal fillers to give you a more youthful appearance. From plumping lips to smoothing lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are an effective and quick cosmetic fix.
