Wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin can make us look older than we feel. However, an often-overlooked cause of an aged appearance is the way light and shadows play across our faces as we age. Fortunately, dermal fillers can create attractive facial contours that reflect light youthfully.
When certain facial areas lose volume and droop, shadows begin to appear on the face. In youth, these facial areas - the cheeks, nose, lips, forehead, and temples - are plump and smooth, causing a reflection of light. Without deep shadows, the face looks young and vibrant.
Although none of us can do much to avoid eventual shadows caused by the age-related loss of collagen and elastin, Dr. Fitzgerald can revive your youthful facial features with non-surgical dermal fillers to restore volume, balance and definition.
How Do Dermal Fillers Erase Signs of Facial Aging?
Dermal fillers are injectable, gel-like substances used to address a variety of aesthetic concerns in the face to improve your appearance. A number of companies make fillers, and each offers its own unique formulation.
Dermal fillers are primarily used to diminish the signs of facial aging by:
- Filling in shadowed areas of the face, such as the temples and cheeks
- Diminishing under-eye shadows
- Softening creases around the mouth and nose
- Improving facial volume, definition and symmetry
- Plumping lips
Results from some dermal fillers can last for six months to a year, while others can last much longer. During your consultation with Dr. Fitzgerald, she will recommend the treatment that best meets your needs and explain what outcome you can expect.
