Unfortunately, getting wrinkles is a part of the natural aging process, and sometimes they can make us look older than we actually are. Within the last few years as people are beginning to live healthier lifestyles and live longer, even diet and exercise are sometimes not enough to really keep our skin from showing our age. The aging process causes the face and hands to lose underlying fat and collagen, which then causes our skin to droop or sag – which can be one cause of visible wrinkles. Another major cause of visible wrinkling is the creasing that happens as we squint to block the bright Fort Lauderdale sun, smile, make faces and laugh with our kids, etc.
Injectable dermal fillers have become more popular because of the instant effect they have to address skin sagging and wrinkle problems that result from aging, sun damage, skin trauma, scarring or disease. Injectable dermal fillers are most commonly used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, hollow cheeks and eyes, receding chins, thinning lips and wrinkles between the eyes – they may even be used to hide nose bumps or fill in and plump thinning skin on the hands.
Dermal fillers can be used to correct problem areas such as laugh lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines and marionette lines. There are also methods that utilize dermal fillers to enhance certain facial features – the most popular being the cheekbones, chin/jawline and eyebrows. Treatment with dermal fillers can take as little as 30 minutes, depending on the number of injection sites and the injectables being used. These injections are virtually painless and the results can be seen almost immediately.
