Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles in your face and forehead? Lines and wrinkles are common with age. However, thanks to the development of cosmetic injections also known as dermal fillers – which trigger the skin’s ability to produce collagen – you no longer have to settle for looking aged, sunken or tired.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, accounting for about one-third of its protein composition. It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Think of it as the body’s “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue. Type 4 collagen is found in your skin. As you age, your body produces less and lower quality collagen. One of the visible signs of this is in your skin, which becomes less firm and supple, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
What is a Dermal Filler?
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. This facial rejuvenation treatment is popular for both men and women. It can be a cost-effective way to look younger without the need for surgery or downtime.
While dermal fillers are most known for their treatment of wrinkles, they can do much more. Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can treat:
- Smooth the lines around the nose and mouth.
- Restore volume to sunken cheeks.
- Decrease vertical lip line.
- Plump and beautify the lips.
- Smooth out a chin crease.
- Improve symmetry among facial features, including the jaw line.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are two types of dermal fillers, the first contains calcium-based microspheres that suspend in a gel that, when injected, stimulates your body to produce its own collagen. The gel is absorbed by the body so all that remains is your own natural collagen. The other type of filler is hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural product already found in the body. Fillers allow patients to see their results right away as the hyaluronic acid gets to work drawing in moisture and stimulates the body’s own collagen production ability for long-term results.
Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Kysse are examples of the high-quality fillers used here at Alazzo Med Spa.
Let’s go over some of the problem areas that our fillers treat:
Lyft – This filler is used to treat the mid-face, like your cheeks. It adds fullness to your cheeks and smoothes the smile lines.
Refyne – The Refyne filler got its name because it used to treat fine lines. When injected into wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, the gel immediately fills the area for instant plumping and smoothing.
Defyne – This treatment is used to treat creases. Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines. It helps restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions.
Kysse – is used to treat lips. It enhances the texture and color of your lips while maintaining a full range of expressions.
