Sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles form the most prominent signs of facial aging, making one appear older than they actually are. Normally, wrinkles first begin appearing where your skin has a natural likelihood of creasing or folding due to certain facial expressions. They are typically found on the outer corners of your eyes from laughing or squinting, as well as other areas. At the Georgia Center for Female Health, a treatment with fillers can address these common types of facial aging and help you achieve younger-looking skin.
Causes of Facial Aging
One of the main causes of facial aging is a reduction in skin volume caused by a deficiency in certain skin components like hyaluronic acid and collagen. Fillers help to address these problems by correcting deficiencies that lead to facial hollows, skin laxity, and creasing.
Hyaluronic acid is an extremely popular type of ingredient in injectables right now. It occurs in abundance in younger people but tends to decline with age. Its function in your skin is to act as a sort of sponge, attracting and binding a tremendous amount of moisture within skin cells. As you experience age-related hyaluronic acid deficiency, your skin will begin to gradually grow thinner and drier, making it more susceptible to the development of lines and wrinkles that give away your age.
Restylane is a type of filler that contains hyaluronic acid, which you may be familiar with as a popular ingredient in a number of topical products. In addition to making a great skin care ingredient, hyaluronic acid works extremely well when delivered via injection, as with Restylane. Once injected, Restylane immediately begins drawing moisture into skin cells in the treatment area to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Like Restylane, Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. However, the product also includes lidocaine to ensure your comfort during your treatment. Juvederm is formulated using an especially smooth and silky gel, unlike many other injectables that have a more granular texture.
Like all fillers, Juvederm will eventually be fully metabolized by your body. When this happens, you may require touch-up treatments for the maintenance of your results.
