Our Cincinnati patients often request dermatological treatments that do not involve surgery. While surgical procedures can be very powerful, they can sometimes lead to results that appear unnatural or require a great deal of downtime to recover from the procedures.
A number of recent innovations in cosmetic procedures have led to results that are similar in nature to that of surgical procedures. You get many of the same benefits without the drawbacks. Nonsurgical skin enhancement techniques like treatment with dermal fillers offer results that are quite soft and natural in appearance.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances designed to replace those that were once produced in abundance by your own body. Substances like hyaluronic acid and collagen help lend structure and moisture to your face, leading to a face that is full and free of wrinkles.
Dermal fillers offer significant results without the need for surgery. They are also known for causing very few side effects or the potential for allergic response by your body.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is one of the least known skin components but is often used in topical skin care ingredients. It also makes an excellent dermal filler because hyaluronic acid has the special ability to attract and bind moisture inside of your skin. When you are young, its abundance leads to skin that is hydrated and full. As you grow older, hyaluronic acid depletion leads to drier skin that becomes wrinkled.
How Long Will my Results Last?
There is no one answer to this question because each individual case is different. However, dermal filler results can last up to a year or more, depending upon the precise product that was injected. At some point, the filler material will be absorbed by your body and require follow-up treatments. At Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center, we offer a variety of dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and Restylane®.
